    'John Wentworth son and heyr [of John Wentworth] [married] Agnes doughter & quoheyre of William Dransfeld of West Breton.'

    This is the only one of the 3 sources that indicates that Agnes was the daughter of William, and appears to be an error. While her father may have been named William, it appears that she was the coheir of her brother William.
