who, as well as Fenwick, was nominat. by Cromwell to serve in the
pretended High Court of Justice for condemnat. of the king; but they
both escap. the snare. Haslerigg is in the will call. f.-in-law; also
Clavering, wh. may have been sec. h. of his mo. and Fenwick calls
hims. of Worminghurst, near Steyning in Sussex. Besides this Co. he
had est. in Middlesex and Kent. By J. Hammond Trumbull, wh. expend.

male of this disting. fam. in the Brinkburn branch; that his eldest d.
Elizabeth m. Roger of the Stanton branch; and that their eldest s. John,
by m. with Margaret, d. of William of the Bywell branch, had united
