      Biography
      Property
      "Henry Cheyney, however, inherited its fee simple in right of his wife, who was probably George Muschet's daughter. (fn. 25) The manor was settled in 1377 on Henry's son Sir William Cheyney (d. 1399), whose widow Catherine held the manor in 1419. (fn. 26) It had passed by 1428 to Sir William Cheyney's son Lawrence (d. 1461). (fn. 27) In 1480 Lawrence's son and heir Sir John (d. 1489) granted Mochettes manor to his eldest son Sir Thomas, (fn. 28) who died in 1514. His daughter and heir Elizabeth brought the manor by her marriage to Thomas Vaux (b. 1509), later 2nd Lord Vaux of Harrowden. (fn. 29) Thomas and Elizabeth both died in 1556, and the manor passed to their son and heir William. (fn. 30) On his death in 1595, it descended to his grandson Edward, Lord Vaux, who sold it in 1619 to Thomas Willys (d. 1626). (fn. 31) The manor thereafter formed part of the Fen Ditton estate."[1]
      Is William Henry's son, or grandson? This John is missing, from that account, and there's some confusion as to who married the Mochettes/Muschet, Henry or John.
