  • Notes 
    • Widely shown as a daughter of "William Gascoigne of Gawthorpe," but there were several of those. Several reputable sources, including the website of genealogist Terry J. Booth, give her as a daughter of William Gascoigne (d. 1422) and his wife Joan/Jane Wyman (d. 1426), but aside from the fact that this seems like a chronological stretch, it's also notable that John Saville's will gives his wife Alice "for life the manor of Thornhill and lands in Ovendon, Waddesworth and Skircoittes, which Wm. Gascoigne, knt., and others granted to me and Alice my wife by deed dated 1 July, 28 Hen. VI." 28 Hen VI is 1449/50. The William Gascoigne whose wife was Joan/Jane Wyman died in 1422, whereas his son William Gascoigne was alive in 1449/50. And it seems much more likely that Alice Gascoigne and her husband would be given land by her father than by her brother.
