  • Notes 
    • Their great-great granddaughter Anne Twynyho (1509-1559) married Henry Heydon (1507-1559) of Watford, Hertfordshire; they were grandparents of Francis Heydon (1540-1606) who is often claimed, on wobbly evidence, to have been a great-grandfather of the Francis Heydon baptised at Watford in 1628. This Francis Heydon has been widely claimed without proof to have been the Virginia and Maryland immigrant Francis Heydon who died in 1694, 8XG-grandfather of Patrick Nielsen Hayden.
