Research Notes

The Visitations vary greatly in their reliability, and they have conflated the Constable families of Flamborough and Halsham. Thus, she is often conflated with Catherine Cumberford.

I notice that you have Catharine Cumberworth instead of Ales Cumberworth, I'm wondering what is the document that provides this. I have this for Ales Cumberworth - The visitation of Yorkshire in the years 1563 and 1564

by Flower, William, ca. 1498-1588; Norcliffe, Charles Best; Harleian Society, p. 64 - 65 Here is the Website:

Ok, I just found a better Document and YES her name was Catherine. . . .Here is a Transcribed Copy of the will from Latin to English Dated 5 Aug 1404

  • ccxxxvii Testament of Marmaduc Cunstabill Domini De Flaynburgh

[K.f.214] in the Name of God, Amen. I Marmaduke le Constabill, soldier, and Lord of Flaynburgh, of sound mind and good memory, on the Feast of the Apostles Peter and Paul, A.D. 1324, I make my will in this manner. First of all, I give and bequeath my soul to the almighty God, B. Maria, and all Saints, and my body to be buried in the church of B. Oswald in Flaynburg, with the best animal that I have in Flaynburg, in the name of my mortuary, with certain equipment. Likewise, I charge six chaplains, for the souls of my father and my mother, and for my divine soul to celebrate, to each one 5 marks. I also read the work of B. Petri Ebor. iij iiij. Also the church of the holm for the same iiij. iiij. Also I read to Elizabeth le Constabill, a nun in the house of Swyne, my sister, vj. viii Also I bequeath one le pess gilt, which I had of lord William de Erghome the soldier, and another le pess white with roses, to my wife Catherine.
