    Notes:

    From Jacobus, The Bulkeley Genealogy:

    "Mr. Anthony Irby was first cousin of Olive Irby, the wife of Rev. Edward Bulkeley, and mother of Rev. Peter Bulkeley. Mr. Irby's wife, Alice Welby, was sister of Richard Welby who was married at Whaplode in 1595 to Frances Bulkeley, daughter of Edward and Olive and sister of Peter. Hence, Peter Bulkeley not only was cousin of the Irbys of Whaplode, but his brother—in-law (Richard Welby) was brother of Mrs. Anthony Irby, the wife of the head of that house.

    "Mr. Irby studied law, was a member of Lincoln's Inn, and was admitted to the bar, 10 Feb. 1577/8. He represented Boston, co. Lincoln, in Parliament three times during Elizabeth's reign, and in 1603 (1 James I), and was one of the Masters in Chancery in the reign of King James I.

    "It has been foolishly asserted in Thompson's History of Boston, in Collins' Peerage, and other works, that he purchased the manors of Moulton, Fitzwalter and Medietas Dominorum from Robert Radcliffe (Lord Fitzwalter and Earl of Sussex) on 13 Oct. 1538. This date was at least several years before he was born. The purchase could apply to his grandfather Anthony Irby (died 1552), but it seems quite evident that the Moulton lordship came by inheri­tance through the later Anthony's mother from the Serjeant family."

    [Note that in fact Alice Welby was Richard Welby's half-sister, not sister, a fact unavailable to Jacobus when The Bulkeley Genealogy was written.]

    Notes:

    The ancestry shown here for Anthony Irby is sourced to "Among the Royal Servants: Welby, Browne, Quarles and Related Families" by David H. Kelley, Don C. Stone, and David C. Dearborn, in Foundations, journal of the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy, volume 3, number 4, July 2010. Kay Allen has opined (on SGM, 16 Feb 1999) that no primary evidence exists for this; that Anthony Irby was "a 'new man' of the Tudors, and as such, was given an 'old' pedigree by the heralds. It is very likely that he comes from a family of prosperous yeoman sheep farmers around Swineshead."

    Anthony married Alice Bountaine. Alice (daughter of John Bountaine) died in 1557 in Gosberton, Spalding, Lincolnshire, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
