Sir Roger Wentworth was born abt. 1395 and died October 24, 1452. Father: John Wentworth Mother: Agnes Dronsfield

Roger Wentworth, of Nettlestead, Suffolk, which he acquired through marriage (by 25 June 1422, originally secretly because of their difference in rank) with Margery de jure Baroness le Despenser (died 20 April 1478), in her own right, widow of 7th Lord (Baron) de Ros of Helmsley and daughter and heir of 2nd Lord (Baron) le Despenser, 17 Dec 1387

Margery and Roger Wentworth were ancestors to Jane Seymour, third queen consort of King Henry VIII.

Roger is often credited with a knighthood, but this seems to be unsupported by primary evidence.

Visitation of Essex: Wentworth [1]. Gives parents as John Wentworth and unknown Beaumont. John is then given as son of John and Agnis Dronfilde. Can someone look at this? Could be wrong, but should be commented on.
