  • Notes 
    • "John Wyndham was knighted for valour at the battle of Stoke in 1489 by King Henry VII., against whom, however, he afterwards conspired, in favor of Edmund de la Pole, the Yorkist claimant of the throne; for this he was arraigned in the Guildhall, London, 2nd May, 1502 (17th Henry VII.), and being found guilty of high treason, was beheaded on Tower Hill, 6 May, 1502. Sir James Tyrrell, his fellow-conspirator (the supposed agent of Richard III. in the murder of Edward V., and his brother Richard, Duke of York, in the Tower of London,) was executed with him. Their 'bodies and heads' were buried in Austin Friars, London, where many other sufferers for the house of York had been buried before them." [A Royal Descent, citation details below.]
