Will dated 8 Apr and proven 2 Oct 1588. Named in her father’s will 1558 as his “daughter Godsalve”. The Visitation also says that William married secondly to Elizabeth daughter of Richard Townshend of Rainham by Catherine daughter of Sir Humphrey Brown. In Anne’s father’s will there is a curious note “to daughter Godsalve ₤200, if she marry some gentleman by her own consent with the advice of her friends” which suggests that her husband died by this time so there would seem to be some conflict in the fact that he married again after her death in 1588. Another unresolved conflict is that Blomefield notes that 31 May 1561 Mr Ralph Shelton paid 5 pounds to be given in alms for William Godsalve, Esq who died very suddenly in Whitsun week. The Harleian Society has her married to a second husband named Grey.
