  • Notes 
    • The History of Parliament article about her son Clement Paston correctly calls her "da. of Sir Henry Heydon of Baconsthorpe", but the link on Henry Heydon's name mistakenly goes to Henry Heydon (<1507-1559) of Watford, Hertfordshire, once thought to have been a great-great grandfather of PNH's immigrant ancestor Francis Heydon (d. 1694). This is obviously chronologically impossible. The irony is that the William Heydon who was her actual father was a son of a man who changed his name to Heydon because he thought it sounded more upmarket, and who stole his arms from the Watford Heydon family of whom the Henry Heydon who d. 1559 was a member.
