    Notes:

    From "The Well-Beloved Mother-in-law of Robert Marbury" by F. N. Craig, citation details below:

    In the funeral of Henry VII in 1509, [Robert Marbury] was a yeoman to the King's Grandame (that is, Henry VII's grandmother, Lady Margaret Beaufort, wife successively of Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond; Sir Henry Stafford; and Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby). In 1510, as yeoman usher of the Queen's Chamber, he had a grant to be feodary [i.e., one who holds land of an overlord on condition of homage] of the duchy of Exeter within county Devon, during [the king's] pleasure. In 1513, as Robert Marbury Jr. he was a feofee, along with Robert Marbury Sr. [his uncle], John Lenton [father of his son's future wife] and John Marbury, clerk. In 1514, his cousin William Blount, Lord Mountjoy, was the Queen's Chamberlain. In the same year, Robert Marbury, yeoman usher of the Queen's Chamber, was feodary noted above, for life. In 1517, he was appointed to be serjeant at arms, with 12d. a day in consideration of his services to Queen Catherine. In 1526, his yearly wage as serjeant at arms in the Royal Household was £18 5s, i.e., still 12d. a day.

    In the Lincolnshire Rebellion of October 1536, Robert Marbury appears as follows: In the examination of Sir Edward Madeson before the King's Council, Madeson, with his brother John Madeson and both his sons, then went up into Castrefeld to see the number of rebellious and there met Sir Wm. Askew and Marbery the serjeant and one Bonctcene of the Exchequer. The rebels took them all except Boneteync and Marbury. (Let. & Pap. Hen. VIII, 11:225-26, no. 568.)

    In a letter from Sir Robert Kyrkham to Richard Cromwell:

    "Yesterday night late" he was at Stanforde with Sir William Parre and others when Marbery and Madyson, the King's servants came in, having escaped from the rebels who they say are 20,000... (Let. & Pap. Hen. VIII, 11:248, no. 619).

    Robert married Katherine Williamson. Katherine (daughter of John Williamson and Jane Angevine) was born Abt 1508; died 11 Aug 1525. [Group Sheet]


  2. 5.  Katherine Williamson was born Abt 1508 (daughter of John Williamson and Jane Angevine); died 11 Aug 1525.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 17 Aug 1525

    Children:
    1. 2. William Marbury was born Abt 1524, of Girsby in Burgh-upon-Bain, Lincolnshire, England; died Bef 16 Nov 1581.

  3. 6.  John Lenton was born , of Aldwinkle, Northamptonshire, England.

    Notes:

    Notwithstanding the claim made in several online sources, the John Lenton who was father to William Marbury's wife Agnes was not the John Lenton who married Elizabeth Shepherd. That latter marriage, as shown by Walter Goodwin Davis in "Shepherd of Littlecote" (New England Historical and Genealogical Register 118:251, Oct 1964), took place on 18 May 1585, making it obvious it was a later John Lenton that married this Elizabeth.

    • Alternate death: 1508

    Notes:

    "That he was a man of considerable social standing and prestige in Northampton county is indicated by the fact that he is first mentioned in 1473 as an executor of the will of John Stafford, Earl of Wiltshire, a younger son of Humphrey Stafford, the powerful Duke of Buckingham. William Marbury married about this time into the prominent family of Blount. His wife Anne, daughter of Sir Thomas Blount and Agnes Hawley, was niece of Sir Walter Blount, Lord Mountjoy, K.G., who in 1467 had married Anne Neville, the widow of Humphrey Stafford, Duke of Buckingham. Sir Walter Blount, his wife Anne, Duchess of Buckingham, and William Marbury were co-executors of the will of Anne's son, John, Earl of Wiltshire. In the will, dated April 21, 1473, the Earl of Wiltshire made William a guardian of his only son, Edward, then age three: 'Also I will pray William Marbury to be attendaunte to my sonne and he to have rule about him.' It was William's brother, Robert, however, who attended the second Earl in the capacity of gentleman-usher for a period of twenty-five years."
