John Bykley was named as an executor and cousin of Sir Lewis Bagot died 1534. Letters written to Sir Richard Bagot, in 1591, by Thomas Byckley/Bickley, Bishop of Chichester, claim Thomas is also their 'cousin'.  It is possible that Thomas Bickley, the Bishop, is the son of John Bykley, because he bore the paternal arms and crest (on portraits) of John. I realise that the word  'cousin' was used fairly loosely in the old days.
