Notice of intent - Yelverton family of 15/16C Norfolk [closed]

+7 votes

I intend to start on a clean-up of the Yelverton family, descendants of William Yelverton (who is project protected, British Royals and Aristocrats, as is his son William). An example of the mess: Yelverton-4 is father of Yelverton-79 and Yelverton-93, but Paston-31 is wife of Yelverton-93 and mother of Yelverton-79.

There are sufficient primary sources to get the relationships right. If anyone has comments or concerns, now is the time to speak!

I untied them once, years ago, but then there was a merge and they were tied in knots again.

But now I have no idea if I untied them right in the first place.

I posted links to threads in the gen-medieval archive, but Ancestry has broken them all.  The dates were June 2000 and December 2006.

Richardson's Royal Ancestry 2013 vol 5 p 442 says only

Ela Brewes m Sir William Yelverton KB (prob b abt 1400) as his 2nd wife and they had

- one son, William esq, m Katherine Rands

- 3 daughters, Anne, Margaret (m Thomas Tyndall), Eleanor (m John Conyers).

Does not mention who Sir William's 1st wife was or what kids they had.  Very cagey.  He does call William esq "son and heir", which if correct would imply no extant sons from the 1st marriage.

There are prospective Magna Carta project trails through here.
Thanks RJ. There is good evidence from the Gross/Le Gros family side that William's first wife was Jane Le Gros. And reportedly from William's IPM (unfortunately not yet digitized or otherwise published) there was a son John from this marriage who was the father of the William who married Anne Paston. What does Richardson cite as his sources?
