Brian Palmes, Esq. was born circa 1460 at Naburn, Yorkshire, England. There is some controversy whether he was the son of William Palmes and Elinor Heslerton, as suggested by Burke, or the son of William Palmes and Ellin Roucliffe, as suggested by Dugdale. Also confused is whether Brian married firstly Ellen Acclame, the mother of all of his children, and secondly to Anne Markenfield, according to Burke, or married firstly to Anastasia, (or Elinor) Heslerton, secondly to Ellen Acclame, and thirdly to Anne Markenfield, according to Dugdale.
He and Ellen Acclame obtained a marriage license in November 15, 1493.
Brian Palmes, Esq. married Anne Markenfield, daughter of Sir Thomas Markenfield and Eleanor Conyers, circa 1500; His 2nd marriage.
This is the son of William Palmes and Ellen Roucliff. He is mentioned in Ellen's brothers wills and also their sons wills. Early Bourkes Peerage is wrong. William Dugdales Visitation of Yorkshire is correct and so Is the History of Parliament.
