Research Notes for Edward Chamberlayne

Research Notes for William Chamberlayne

According to Burke’s Peerage, William Chamberlayne was born in Princethorpe, Warwickshire, on Thursday, 26th December 1628. This is an exact date, but unfortunately, so far, no corroborating evidence has been found to back it up.[1]

p.159 Virginia Gleanings

MUST be a mistake, because it:

Mentions an Edward Chamberlayne, supposedly High Sheriff of Gloucestershire in 1597, (39 E.R. I).

  • But see wikipedia list of Gloucestershire High Sheriffs:


An EDMUND Chamberlayne of Maugersbury died 12 April 1634.

...This doesn't mention an Edward at all. Sir Thomas Chamberlayne of Prestbury had no son named Edward - no Edward is mentioned in his Will, only a John, an Edmund and a Theophila from his 2nd wife (Elizabeth Luddington) and from his 3rd, Anne Carkeke, whose name is not mentioned, he had a son (Thomas) Chamberlaine of Oddington.
