    Notes:

    Also called Jane; also called Belers, Bellairs, etc.

    Several sources, including Royal Ancestry (vol. 1, p. 351), have Joan/Jane, daughter of James Beler and Margaret de Bernake, as having been married to Simon Digby and Thomas Seyton. But:

    "Everard Seyton was the son of Sir John Seyton by his second wife a daughter of Digby. He died in 16 Edward IV [1477] leaving two infant daughters Joan and Anne. Everard Seyton received the estate of Maidwell, Northamptonshire as his inheritance. He is not mentioned in Vincent's pedigree of the family but his daughter Joan married Francis Metcalfe and upon her husband's demise conveyed the manors of Maydewell to John Seyton, esq. Her uncle had received the estate of Seyton in Rutlandshire upon his father's death in 1396. In 6 Henry VIII [1515] a fine was levied between Joan Metcalfe, widow, daughter to Everard Seyton, Esq. and John Seyton, Esq. This John Seyton was the second son of Thomas Seyton, Esq.; eldest son to John Seyton, Esq. by Jane Bellers his first wife." [The History and Antiquities of Northamptonshire, Compiled from the Manuscript Collections of the Late Learned Antiquary John Bridges, Esq. by Peter Whalley. Oxford: The Clarendon Press, 1791]

    "Though the pedigree of the Seytons given in the visitation of Northamptonshire shows that John Seyton had a son Thomas and three grandsons, Martinsthorpe is said to have passed to William Feilding by his marriage with Agnes, daughter and heir of John de St. Liz or de Seyton." [VCH Rutland 2:84-85]

    "John de Seyton [...] died at Jerusalem in 1396 and was succeeded by his son John. The latter held the manor until his death, which took place about 1436-7. His son Thomas de Seyton assigned it at that date in dower to his father's widow Joan." [VCH Buckinghamshire 2:334-35]

    "Whatever knowledge of the law Digby had acquired at the Middle Temple, an inn with which he retained a connexion for many years, was put to both public and private use: regularly named to commissions of oyer and terminer for the midlands, he was also consulted on legal matters by his friends and relatives, for whom he often acted as a feoffee. It was perhaps his legal bent which in 1572 prompted his demand to see the 3rd Earl of Huntingdon's patent of lieutenancy before acknowledging Huntingdon's standing in the county, a piece of officiousness which incensed the earl. With so ardent a Puritan as Huntingdon, however, Digby can have felt little at ease: in 1564 he was reported to be 'indifferent' in religion but towards the end of his life he was described as unsound in faith and one of his sons was a notable Catholic."
