Parents are incorrect for Ann, Ralph Verney born 1509 and Elizabeth Bray born 1513 could not have a daughter born in 1514. Ralph Vereny does have a sister named Anne Verney born in 1518.

William Cave was never married to Anne, he was her son-in-law married to Eleanor (Alinore) her daughter. William is my 11th G Grandfather, Anne is my 12th G Grandmother.
