  • Notes 
    • From An Essay Towards a Topographical History of the County of Norfolk by Francis Blomefield (citation details below):

      This William, in 1351, was a knight, and serjeant at law, and in 1366 settled on Dionise his wife, his manors of Morehall, StrattonStreless, Vaux's in Burgh St. Mary, and Stalham-hall. In 1378 he lent King Richard II. 40 marks towards his supporting the French wars; and in 1381, 50 marks more for that purpose; he died in 1384, and was buried in St. Margaret's chancel at Ormesby, John his son being a minor; he seems to have been concerned in rebuilding the chancel, for he lies under the old arched tomb on the north side, and his arms are on the roof.
