Elizabeth Wroth is a descendant of Magna Carta surety baron William de Huntingfield



Some internet genealogies show a second husband John Wynne. There is no documentation, however, for such a connection.


Elizabeth Wroth was a daughter of Sir Thomas Wroth and Mary Rich. She was a legatee in the 1573 will of her father. [1]

She was born after her parents' marriage in 1538, and presumably at the family estate at Durants, Enfield, Middlesex.

Estimating birthdate: She was one of 14 children, who, if they were born at 2 year intervals, were born between 1539 and 1567. Assuming she was 19 when she married in 1574 gives her a birth date of 1557, which falls within this range.

On 24 June 1574 at Hertingfordbury, Herts, she married George Mynne Esq of Hertingfordbury.[1]

They had 3 sons

  • Robert
  • John Esq
  • George

and 3 daughters

  • Mary
  • Susan
  • Anne, wife of Sir George Calvert

George died in 1581 and his wife then married one Nicholas Butler Esq. [1]

She died 14 August 1614. [1]
