Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Oliver Wentworth was born about 1490 in of Goxhill, Glanford Brigg, Lincolnshire, England (son of Thomas Wentworth and Jane Mirfield); died between 7 Dec 1558 and 28 Jan 1559.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Aft 7 Dec 1558

    Notes:

    Some experts have expressed doubt that he was a son of Thomas Wentworth of North Elmshall and Jane Mirfield. But he was clearly of gentry rank to have married Isabel Soothill. And Jane Mirfield's father was an Oliver -- not a common name in England at the time. This Oliver is the first known Wentworth thus named. Having waffled over this issue, as of 20 April 2017 we're restoring the link.

    Oliver married Isabel Soothill about 1510. Isabel (daughter of Richard Soothill and Agnes) was born before 1489; died after 1544. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    From "The Well-Beloved Mother-in-law of Robert Marbury" by F. N. Craig, citation details below:

    In the funeral of Henry VII in 1509, [Robert Marbury] was a yeoman to the King's Grandame (that is, Henry VII's grandmother, Lady Margaret Beaufort, wife successively of Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond; Sir Henry Stafford; and Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby). In 1510, as yeoman usher of the Queen's Chamber, he had a grant to be feodary [i.e., one who holds land of an overlord on condition of homage] of the duchy of Exeter within county Devon, during [the king's] pleasure. In 1513, as Robert Marbury Jr. he was a feofee, along with Robert Marbury Sr. [his uncle], John Lenton [father of his son's future wife] and John Marbury, clerk. In 1514, his cousin William Blount, Lord Mountjoy, was the Queen's Chamberlain. In the same year, Robert Marbury, yeoman usher of the Queen's Chamber, was feodary noted above, for life. In 1517, he was appointed to be serjeant at arms, with 12d. a day in consideration of his services to Queen Catherine. In 1526, his yearly wage as serjeant at arms in the Royal Household was £18 5s, i.e., still 12d. a day.

    In the Lincolnshire Rebellion of October 1536, Robert Marbury appears as follows: In the examination of Sir Edward Madeson before the King's Council, Madeson, with his brother John Madeson and both his sons, then went up into Castrefeld to see the number of rebellious and there met Sir Wm. Askew and Marbery the serjeant and one Bonctcene of the Exchequer. The rebels took them all except Boneteync and Marbury. (Let. & Pap. Hen. VIII, 11:225-26, no. 568.)

    In a letter from Sir Robert Kyrkham to Richard Cromwell:

    "Yesterday night late" he was at Stanforde with Sir William Parre and others when Marbery and Madyson, the King's servants came in, having escaped from the rebels who they say are 20,000... (Let. & Pap. Hen. VIII, 11:248, no. 619).

    Robert married Katherine Williamson. Katherine (daughter of John Williamson and Jane Angevine) was born about 1500; died on 17 Aug 1525. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  6. 13.  Katherine Williamson was born about 1500 (daughter of John Williamson and Jane Angevine); died on 17 Aug 1525.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1508
    • Alternate death: 11 Aug 1525

    Children:
    1. 6. William Marbury was born about Jun 1525 in of Girsby in Burgh-upon-Bain, Lincolnshire, England; died before 16 Nov 1581.

  7. 14.  John Lenton was born in in of Aldwinkle, Northamptonshire, England.

    Notes:

    Notwithstanding the claim made in several online sources, the John Lenton who was father to William Marbury's wife Agnes was not the John Lenton who married Elizabeth Shepherd. That latter marriage, as shown by Walter Goodwin Davis in "Shepherd of Littlecote" (New England Historical and Genealogical Register 118:251, Oct 1964), took place on 18 May 1585, making it obvious it was a later John Lenton that married this Elizabeth.

    Children:
    1. 7. Agnes Lenton was born about 1525 in of Aldwinkle, Northamptonshire, England; died after Nov 1581.
