Sir Reynold Scott of Scott's Hall and Thevegate, Smeeth, Kent, was born about 1511/12 at Scott’s Hall in Smeeth. "Sir Reynold Scott died 16 Dec. 1554, and was buried in Brabourne, Kent. He left a will dated 4 Sept. 1554, proved 13 Feb. 1554/5 (P.C.C. 40 More). His widow, Mary, was living in June 1555." :Note: Some sources say Reginald, some Reynold. Richardson says Reynold, but cites sources saying Reginaldus  and Reignold.
His will, dated 4 September 1554, was was proved 15 February 1554/5. It names his aunt by his first marriage, his second wife, and children from both marriages, along with servants and friends.
The following abstract is from the transcription in Scott'sMemorials of the family of Scott:
Dated: 4 September 1554
"I, Raynolde Scott, knight, of Smethe in the Countie of Kente..."
"Ffirst I will that accordinge to agreemente made betwene Sir John Baker, knyghte, and me, Ser Rainolde Scott, knyghte, for the marriage of Thomas, my sonne, and Elizabethe, the daughter of the saide Ser John Baker, knighte,... is that after the Solemnizacion and marriage..." (meaning Thomas and Elizabethe were not yet married in 1554)
In naming who shall have the property if Thomas should have no male heirs, it would go to Brian, then Charles, then Henrie, then George, then William. If none should have male heirs, then to "Rainolde Scott, sonne and heire of my brother Richard Scott,...[if no male heirs, then] unto William Scott, sonne and heire of Edward Scott, my unkle.... And for lacke of suche issue, the remainder thereof unto the righte heires of me, the said Rainolde Scott, knighte, for ever." (later in the will he notes his brother Richard and his uncle Edward are deceased)
Note :Brian is referred to as Bryan at least once in the will.

a footnote in the transcription calls Sir John Baker "the bloody Attorney General to Queen Mary" and the father-in-law of Sir Thomas Scott. The will, in "the disposicion of my landes and tenements...."
Douglas Richardson's work is the foundational reference for the Magna Carta Project. Where there is a conflict regarding the facts on a profile, we follow Richardson, unless there is more recent published research that adds to or corrects his work. The following facts from the profile are in conflict with Richardson's Royal Ancestry (2013).
Name: Reginald as used in this biography; source for the name included "(sometimes spelled Reynold)".Richardson lists him as Reynold Scott, with source information ("Scott ped.") showing Reginaldus and Reignold. The profile had Reynold marked as uncertain, which I changed to certain (once a certainty level is selected, the option to have none selected is gone). ~ Noland-165 22:10, 19 February 2018 (EST)
Birth date: As of 17 February 2018, biography stated birth "c. 1495" but source cited had 1520 and datafield had "about 1512". Richardson shows him born "about 1511/12" and his son born about 1537 (aged 39 in 1576).
Birth location: Scott's Hall is not disputed, but the biography (as of 17 February) showed it in Brabourne, Kent and Richardson shows it in Smeeth, Kent. From the source cited for Brabourne: They lived in the vicinity of Smeeth, Brabourne and Chilham.
Marriage dates: As of 17 February 2018, his marriage to Emeline is given as 1532 (to about 1541) in datafields. Changed to "about" since sources show "before 1537". The earlier date is apparently to accommodate the birth date of 1532 given in the profile of daughter Katherine. Datafield for marriage to Mary Tuke has 1538-1544, Richardson shows his 2nd marriage as before 1542.
Children: The profile listed William first (with a 1540 birth year) of Reginald's children by his second wife Mary, citing Scott, but collaboration of this birth year is needed. A BHO article (see below) states Charles was the eldest son by Mary. The profile also included both a daughter named Anne by Emeline and another by Mary (both citing Scott), which is likely an error (only one Anne named in his will).
"Pedigree of the Scotts of Brabourne and Scot’s Hall, Kent" traces back 10 generations of Reginald Scott's ancestors.

↑ Some sources show Thomas as son of his second wife instead of Emeline, his first. By his will, Thomas clearly is eldest. A British History Online article (link below), names Charles his eldest son by his second wife. The will also appears to indicate the order of his sons, after Thomas, to be Bryan, Charles, Henry, William (which is how Richardson lists them). The order of daughters appears consistent among sources: Katherine, Anne (by Emeline), Mary, Elizabeth, Ursula, and Margarete.

This particular profile is an on-going project to document the genealogy of one Scott line and also is on a trail between a Richardson-documented Gateway Ancestor and a Magna Carta Surety Baron. The profile is a collaborative work-in-progress, always in need of direct and primary sources. Please contribute sources with your information. Thank you to everyone who has contributed.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Reynold by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
Now Go to page 185 simply change page number in link from 254 to 185 now see bottom left of 185 (page on right) you will see Reginald and under him his son Charles who married Jane Wyatt this is where i also have an interest like i said above i descend from Richard but i have many Wyatt Y DNA matches that suggest that Charles Scott is the Father of Many Wyatt's see R1b Gr 4 i am Kit#510220
it is Possible Charles had an Affair with his Mother in Law Lady Jane Hawte (Wyatt)
The Magna Carta project has identified a potential Magna Carta line for this profile that lies between Gateway Ancestor, Henry Filmer and Surety Baron William (Huntingfield) de Huntingfield. As a member of the Magna Carta project I will be developing the trail from Henry Filmer to Roger Lewknor. Roger Lewknor's line connects to Magna Carta surety baron, William (Huntingfield) de Huntingfield
