In 1580 Elizabeth Upton married William Strode. She was a maiden still in her teens who lived in the nearby village of Worminster. She was descended from four generations of Uptons who had lived in Cornwall and Dorset as well as Somerset, all in southwestern England. Her grandmother Elizabeth Leversedge, the wife of John Upton, was the descendant of five generations of the Leversedge family dating to 1330 in Somerset and Wiltshire. One of them, Edmund Leversedge, was the husband of Eleanor Wynslade whose various family branches traced back to Somerset to 1100.
