Is Anne Dawnay (Dawney-25) wife of George Conyers, the daughter of John Dawnay and Dorothy Dawnay (Neville-1340)?

The biography for Dorothy states that Anne (no birth date given) is a daughter of Dorothy and John Dawnay.  However, Anne is not listed as a descendant of that family or linked.

Dorothy and John were married on 5/9/1514, and have a son in 1515, so another child born about 1515 is not impossible.

Dugdales Visitation of Yorkshire page 333 does link Anne to both George Conyers and Dorothy and John Dawnay.

Thanks for raising this.  I've connected them up.

Does this support an Edward (Plantagenet-70) gateway ancestor through William Strother (Strother-242)?
Surtees's Conyers pedigree says Eleanor Conyers married 1st Lancelot Strother of Newton and had issue.  Looks good for them.  Question is whether any emigrated.

That Lancelot (son of William) wasn't the only Lancelot.  There was a Lancelot Strother son of Henry, of Hallywell in Alnwick.

Eleanor and Lancelot may well have had a son William, as there's a William Strother of Kirknewton, esq, in 1657.

We have Strother-136 born at Alnwick.  If that were definitely correct, it would suggest he's attached to the wrong family.  But it could be just the usual random box-filling.

Genealogics shows the line

so there's support for it somewhere.
