    Notes:

    "In 1459 there was an assignment from the old trustees of the Wentworth property, of whom Walter Calverley was one, to a new set of trustees (No. 371). This transaction no doubt indicates the coming of age of John Wentworth's son, Walter's grandson, which would show that he was born in 1438." [The Calverley Charters, citation details below.]

    If this is so, it suggests that the younger John Wentworth was born in approximately 1415-1420, thus about ten or fifteen years old when his wardship and marriage were sold in 1430 and 1431. This would also suggest that the elder John Wentworth died in same range, 1415-1420.
