Generation: 2

    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]


  2. 3.  Isabel Soothill was born before 1489 (daughter of Richard Soothill and Agnes); died after 1544.

Generation: 3

  1. 4.  Thomas Wentworth was born about 1441 in of North Elmsall, Yorkshire, England (son of John Wentworth and Joan Calverley); died between 1 Apr 1523 and 19 Nov 1524.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1438, of North Elmsall, Yorkshire, England
    • Alternate death: Abt 1522
    • Alternate death: Aft 1521
    • Alternate death: 1523

    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.

    Notes:

    Escheator of Lincolnshire.

    Gerard married Isabel de Faucomberge. Isabel (daughter of Walter Faucomberge) was born in in of Whitton, Lincolnshire, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  6. 13.  Isabel de Faucomberge was born in in of Whitton, Lincolnshire, England (daughter of Walter Faucomberge).

    Notes:

    "Thomas Faucomberge of Skelton who died in 1407 had a younger brother, Sir Roger Faucomberge, who predeceased his brother. Sir Roger's heir was his son Sir Walter Faucomberge, who is mentioned in the ipm of Thomas Faucomberge (CIPM, vol. 19, no. 386). Sir Walter Faucomberge died on 1 September 1415 (CIPM, vol. 20, no. 298-9). Unfortunately the ipm of Walter does not mention his heirs, and neither does his will (Early Lincoln Wills, 120) so the trail breaks at this point, but it seems likely to me that this Sir Walter Faucomberge was the father of Sir Roger Faucomberge (d. Jun 1455), Isabel, wife of Gerard Sothill and Constance wife of Anthony Nuthill. " [John Watson, citation details below.]
