      "Margaret, the wife of Sir John, died 28th April, 1436, as shown by the Inquisition post mortem for co. Suffolk, dated 21st February, 15 Henry VI ; and, as already stated, the date of Sir John's death was 8th March, 1421. They had issue nine children.

      1. Sir John, of whom we shall treat shortly as

      descent VIII, but who died without issue, and was

      succeeded by his nephew Sir Thomas, the eldest

      son of Sir John's brother Edmund.

      2. Edmund, to whom reference is made later as

      descent VIIIa, on page 23.

      3. A son, who is said to have died young. 20

      4. Roger, who had no issue.

      5. Robert, whose eldest son was Sir John, of

      Wakefield (treated of on page 29), from whom

      the Yorkshire branch trace their descent, though

      through a natural son of Sir John. Robert is named in fine levied 8 Henry VI (1430). He and his sons are referred to in Appendix K.

      6. Elizabeth, who married Sir William Atherton,

      her father's ward, and had issue.

      7. Margaret, who married, first, Nicholas Griffin,

      who died 15 Hen. VI (1437) leaving five sons ; and,

      secondly, Sir Thomas Savile [Savell] of Howley

      and Thornhill, knight of the shire for co. York, in

      1442, by whom there were four children. Her

      daughter, Anna Savile, married Sir John Butler,

      knight, of Bewsey, Baron of Warrington, who was murdered, it is said, out of revenge, at the instiga-

      tion of Thomas Stanley, first Earl of Derby.

      8. Hannah, who married Sir Francis Bernard,

      of Acorn Bank, Westmoreland, ancestor of the

      Earl of Bandon.

      9. Katherine, who married Sir Henry Scaris-

      brick, of Scarisbrick, near Ormskirk, who fought

      at Agincourt, along with his father-in-law and

      brother-in-law, [33rd Report of Deputy Keeper, p. 33].

      They had a son, Henry, and three daughters."
