CAP. 3

(p. 19) This kinde and happy couple I should not have separated but yt the length of the former chapter invited me to pause and to bestow the next upon his lady and some of their children. He married Elizabeth, daughter of John Scopham (as it is in the Earle of Clare's genealogy) or Thomas Scopham as a booke of pedigrees in the custody of Lord Brudnell1 hath it.

Henry the 8th) and it seemes shee could not long outlive him. I finde hir last will recorded in the praerogative office bearing date 17 die Febr. ao 1543.a In that will shee designes to be
