  Research Notes:

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3143362&id=I631844445 :
John owned several thousand acres bordering 3 shires (counties), as well as several manors, including Inglesham, Eaton Water, Hook, Stanton St. Bernard, Latton, and properties in Nunney, Oxford, and others. The family controlled the woolen trade in that part of England, owning all the major wool washing centers, and controlling major grazing lands and thousands of head of sheep. But they were titled "Gentlemen", not farmers. They held extremely powerful positions in the kingdom.

John married Elene Kingston, daughter of Sir William Kingston and Unknown, about 1505 in Inglesham, Wiltshire, England. (Elene Kingston was born in 1493 in Painswick, Gloucestershire, England, died in 1557 in Inglesham, Wiltshire, England and was buried in Inglesham Manor Church, Wiltshire, England.)

  Marriage Notes:

May have been m. about 1515
