Henry Bromflete Lord Vesey, son of Sir Thomas Bromflete, died in 1469 seised of land in Sharnbrook. (fn. 60)[1] He left a daughter Margaret wife of Launcelot Threlkeld, who died in 1493. She alienated Langtons Manor, which appears in 1495 as a capital messuage, and 51s. 1d. rent, of which George Ingleton died seised, though how he acquired it has not been traced.[2]

When did she remarry to Lancelot II Threlkeld? Looks like her first husband died Mar 1461. (Or is that a case of 61/2?)

They have a son Lancelot III, who isn't connected/extant yet. I'd like to establish her re-marriage date, so as to give him an after-date birth year. (He was sheriff of Cumberland in 1492 and dead before Dec 1512.)

ps. Her second husband has a daughter with no mother connected, who is born decades after her siblings. Bastard? Or mal-dated? (Or wrongly placed?)

Margaret is 17 degrees from T S Eliot, 17 degrees from Walter Howe and 6 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
