    Notes:

    "Other participants in the events of 1460-1, however, had returned to their homes and had sunk into obscurity until the Readeption. One example is Sir William Fielding of Lutterworth in Leicestershire. He had gravitated toward the Lancastrian establishment in the Midlands during the later 1450s. There is some limited evidence to support an attachment to the Beauforts, although the precise depth of Fielding's loyalty to the House of Lancaster cannot be stated with absolute certainty. Nevertheless, his general pardon secured in March 1461 implies that he had fought for them at Wakefield or Towton. Little is know about Fielding during the 1460s but his underlying loyalties apparently remained Lancastrian. He served as Readeption sheriff of Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire as well as a justice of the peace in Leicestershire. It has been suggested that Fielding was paying careful heed to events at this time. His concern about what might happen apparently led him to sit down before the battle of Tewkesbury where he drew up his will and evidence of his family's illustrious descent in case he did not survive."

    Several sources, including Royal Ancestry (vol. 1, p. 351), have Joan/Jane, daughter of James Beler and Margaret de Bernake, as having been married to Simon Digby and Thomas Seyton. But:

    "Everard Seyton was the son of Sir John Seyton by his second wife a daughter of Digby. He died in 16 Edward IV [1477] leaving two infant daughters Joan and Anne. Everard Seyton received the estate of Maidwell, Northamptonshire as his inheritance. He is not mentioned in Vincent's pedigree of the family but his daughter Joan married Francis Metcalfe and upon her husband's demise conveyed the manors of Maydewell to John Seyton, esq. Her uncle had received the estate of Seyton in Rutlandshire upon his father's death in 1396. In 6 Henry VIII [1515] a fine was levied between Joan Metcalfe, widow, daughter to Everard Seyton, Esq. and John Seyton, Esq. This John Seyton was the second son of Thomas Seyton, Esq.; eldest son to John Seyton, Esq. by Jane Bellers his first wife." [The History and Antiquities of Northamptonshire, Compiled from the Manuscript Collections of the Late Learned Antiquary John Bridges, Esq. by Peter Whalley. Oxford: The Clarendon Press, 1791]

    "Though the pedigree of the Seytons given in the visitation of Northamptonshire shows that John Seyton had a son Thomas and three grandsons, Martinsthorpe is said to have passed to William Feilding by his marriage with Agnes, daughter and heir of John de St. Liz or de Seyton." [VCH Rutland 2:84-85]

    "John de Seyton [...] died at Jerusalem in 1396 and was succeeded by his son John. The latter held the manor until his death, which took place about 1436-7. His son Thomas de Seyton assigned it at that date in dower to his father's widow Joan." [VCH Buckinghamshire 2:334-35]

    Just as a side note, the late Leo van de Pas's Genealogics site shows Joan/Jane Beler as having married Simon Digby and John Seyton (alias St. Liz).

    Children:
    1. 7. Agnes Seyton alias St. Liz died after 1479.
