MERGE & EDITING NOTICE: George Scott (b abt 1495; d btw Oct 1547-Feb 1548), ancestor of Thomas Scott of Ipswich and his sister Ursula Scott who married Richard Kimball, is the furthest-back confirmed ancestor, according to John B. Threlfall's 1990 work in which he disproves 1896 claims by Harold Bowen that George was descended of the renowned Scott family of Braebourne and Scotshall, Kent.
NOTE: there is no such discussion / disproving in Threlfall's book. Smith-32867 09:20, 2 April 2017 (EDT)

Threlfall (p 423) identifies a wife Margaret (______) for George Scott. She is named such in his will. Therefore what is the source for wife Angela Clements?

Until further confirmation of George's own ancestry can be found, he's being detached from all older Scotts, as well as from wife Maude Pigot. There is no evidence that he was the son of William Scott of Scotts Hall, Brabourne, Kent.

George was born about 1495 in Bradfield, Suffolk England. He and Margaret had six children including Edmund, the second child.

He was buried 30 Aug 1562 in Bradfield, Suffolk England.

Date: 30 Aug 1562
Place: , Bradfield, Suffolk, England
