  • Notes 
    • "His death is variously given as 1439-1453 (VCH Wiltshire), Jan 1461 (The Wallop Family), and 1467 (History of Parliament 1439-1509). A tomb in Ramsbury Church, Wiltshire is attributed to him and his wife, but the brasses had disappeared by 1644." [The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz, citation details below.]

      Sub-treasurer of England, 1391 and 1442; Sheriff of Wiltshire, 1420-23 and 1427-28. Knight of the shire for Wiltshire 1427, 1429, 1430-31, 1432.

      William Darell and Elizabeth Calston were great-great grandparents of Jane Seymour:

      William Darell = Elizabeth Calston
      George Darell = Margaret Stourton
      Elizabeth Darell = John Seymour
      John Seymour = Margery Wentworth
      Jane Seymour (d. 1537)

      Henry VIII courted Jane Seymour at Littlecote House in Chilton Foliat, which property Elizabeth Calston brought to her marriage over a century earlier to William Darell.
