John Fastolf of Fishley shouldn't be confused with John Fastolf of Oulton in Suffolk or his more famous cousin, Sir John Fastolf.[1]

"Julian aforesaid, on the death of Robert Avenel, remarried Nicholas Kymbell of Bedfordshire, Esq., of Bedfordshire; but it appears that she had a daughter and heir, Alice, who married John Fastolf of Fishley, in Norfolk, Esq., by whom she also had a daughter and heir, Alice, who married Edmund Wychingham of Fishley and Upton, Esq., 2d son of Nicholas de Wychingham, 2d son of William de Wychingham and Margaret his wife: this Edmund left, by the said Alice, 4 daughters and co-heirs; Elizabeth, married William Berdwell, Esq. of West Herling; Frances, to Sir William Nevill of Burscomb in Gloucestershire; Amy, to Richard Southwell of Wood Rising; and Joan to Sir Richard Longstrother, and after to Robert Boys."[2]
