Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Eleanor Brandon (daughter of William Brandon and Elizabeth Wingfield); died Aft 1496.

    Notes:

    Richardson's Royal Ancestry gives her death date as 30 Jun 1480, presumably based on the date recorded by Blomefield as displayed on the brass of John Glemham and his two wives in Little Glemham church.

    But as G. Andrews Moriarty (citation details below) pointed out in 1949, the will of Eleanor Brandon's mother, made in 1496 and proved 8 May 1497, appears to clearly say that her daughter Eleanor was then alive. The precise wording is "remainder to Eleanor Glenham, my daughter," which would appear to be unambiguous.

    Eleanor married John Glemham Aft 5 Mar 1466. John (son of John Glemham and Katherine Rochford) was born , of Glemham, Suffolk, England; died Abt 1499; was buried , Little Glemham, Suffolk, England. [Group Sheet]
