Henry Fenton of Fenton, par. Sturton (formerly Stretton-le-Steeple), co. Notts.[1]

According to Flower (1871), Henry Fenton is the son of:[2]

  • Thomas Fenton of Fenton, co. Notts.
  • and an unidentified dau. of Thomas Burgh of Burgh, co. York.

But Flower (1871), notes that Henry was shown as the son of a Raffe Fenton in Harl. 1555, which he prob. thought to be an error.[2]


Henry and his wife Cecily, dau. of John Beaumont of Coleorton, co. Leics, are the parents of:[1]

  • 1. Edward, commander of the Mary Rose of the fleet that fought the Armada.
  • 2. Sir Geoffrey (1539?–1608), translator and statesman.[3]
  • John.[2]
  • Anthony.[2]
  • James (dsp).[2]
  • Henry (dsp).[2]
  • Catherine.[2]

Fenton-1036 and Fenton-7 appear to represent the same person because: Spouse, dates are pretty close. Both are not well sourced profiles, might need some more research.
