    Notes:

    "[T]he IPM of Richard Peshale taken in 1524 stipulates that his heirs were his two first cousins, children of his Peshale aunts. This was doubtless because Richard's ?sisters, Eleanor, Joan, and Elizabeth Peshale, were his heirs of the half-blood. Another heir of the half-blood to Richard Peshale would be his great-nephew, John Blount, Esq. In this time period, heirs of the half-blood were excluded from inheritance, which practice commenced back in the reign of King John. Given this evidence, it would appear that Eleanor, Joan, and Elizabeth Peshale were the children of Humphrey Peshale, Esq. (died 1498), by his 1st unknown wife, not by his 2nd wife, Lettice Harcourt." [Douglas Richardson, SGM, 21 Dec 2021]
