__________ [1] [3] [2] [7] [11] [9] [8] [10] [5] [6]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Evidently Sir William Radcliffe, Rouge Croix, d 1828. https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/db6f0738-3f0c-4309-bd4f-0dcb0e85dde9
  2. 2.0 2.1 Edmund's will mentions a daughter Elizabeth Langdale, living
  3. 3.0 3.1 continues: presented Thos. Hauncemann to Gra's charity in 1480; executor to Henry, Earl of Northumberland in 1485; a commissioner to Henry VII at an inquisition taken at York Castle 1 Aug 1492. Will dated 21 May 1500, "to be bur. at Lund in the Chapel of Our Lady, which I have recently builded"; bequests to many religious houses
  4. For this branch see also Foster's Cumberland Pedigrees, p. 133.
  5. 5.0 5.1 From Edmund's IPM, and entries in the patent rolls abt 1502, Agnes was Beatrice's daughter by her 2nd husband, Sir Robert Constable of North Cliffe, serjeant-at-law, not by Ralph Lord Greystoke. She is misplaced here - she was the 1st wife of Sir Henry jr.
  6. 6.0 6.1 This date is obviously not right.
  7. 7.0 7.1 Presumably Elinor.
  8. 8.0 8.1 In the same book, p.370, a pedigree of Thwaites of Thwaites, Denton and Smeaton, also by Radclyffe, shows a Thomas Thwaites of Smeaton whose will was written and proved on the same dates. But note this data might have been added by the editor, Walker.
  9. 9.0 9.1 His will suggests he left only two surviving children, Frances and Katherine, and Katherine was apparently dsp by the time of the Breedon lawsuit. Isabel and Henry might be taken from Elizabeth Savile's will, ignoring the date it was written. Thomas could be a brother.
  10. 10.0 10.1 Evidently Anne Savile married William Thwaites after the death of Sir Henry. The Thwaites children named in her mother's will (1541) must be William's. He could be the William Thwaites of Lund whose will is dated 1557 (who I take it was not a son of Sir Henry as shown, and not the husband of Anne Clapham). It's not known yet whether he had any interest in Sir Henry's estate by blood, or only through the dower rights of his wife.
  11. 11.0 11.1 This shows her marrying her uncle. But other versions show her mother-in-law marrying a Thwaites of Marston.


1. Will of Elizabeth (Paston) Savile, dated July 1541, pr. Jan 1541/2 (Test. Ebor. 6, p. 139). Mentions daughter Lady Anne Thwaites and names 5 of Anne's children - William, Henry, Isabel, and Katherine Thwaites, and Richard Lacy.

2. Will of Edmund Thwaites esq, https://archive.org/stream/testamentaebora00socigoog#page/n186/

3. Will of Sir Henry Thwaites, https://archive.org/stream/selectionwillsyo05surtuoft#page/114/

4. Will of Beatrice (Hatcliff), Lady Greystock, https://archive.org/stream/testamentaebora00socigoog#page/n248/

5. Breedon lawsuit (said to be 1522), https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/soc.genealogy.medieval/sRmDYwK9XtM/LAd8cjAM-XEJ

6. Claphams of Beamsley, in Clay's Dugdale, Vol. 2, p. 474. Says Anne Clapham's 1st husband was ... Thwaites of Marston. A pencil note on the scanned copy says Thomas (see p. 350), but this is confused. Thomas Thwaites of Marston had a daughter (not widow) Anne who married (s.p) William Ingleby, of the senior line, nephew of (cadet) John Ingleby of Lawkland.

7. Inglebys: same book, p. 350. Anne Clapham's 3rd husband appears under IX as "John (a quo Ingleby of Lawkland)", but with no mention of his wife or her previous husbands. Jane (Stapleton) appears under V on p. 349 - she and her husband had a granddaughter Ellen who by 1478 was married (though maybe still "of tender years") to an unidentified Thwaites. (Will)
