  • Notes 
    • According to Rosie Bevan (citation details below), she may have been a sister of the chronicler Robert Fabian (d. 1513), and thus a daughter of Agnes Bonefey (d. 9 Sep 1484) by her first husband, John Fabyan, citizen and draper of London, who died in the mid-1450s. Agnes's second husband was Christopher Sharpe's older brother Nicholas Sharpe (d. 1473).

      John Fabyan was a son of Stephen Fabyan, cordwainer of Coggeshall, Essex, and his wife Joan. Agnes Bonefey was a daughter of Walter Bonefey, merchant of Colchester, bailiff there 1435-36, 1437-38, 1439-20, and MP for Colchester in 1437. His wife, first name unknown, was a daughter of John Olney (d. abt. 1457-58), whom Bevan (citation details below) describes as "an influential citizen, mercer and Alderman of London, and Merchant of the Staple of Calais. Olney was sheriff of London in 1432, mayor in 1446, Warden of the Mercer’s Company in 1419, 1426, 1432, 1437, 1442 and 1454. He was a principal customer of the Borromei Bank having a turnover value in 1438-39 of £408 5s., and typically borrowed in branches in Middelburg, Antwerp and London where he dealt in wool, linen and other fabrics. Olney also acted as a host to the Italians and reported on goods imported, bought and sold to the exchequer. This was probably carried out at his mansion in Milk Street, which descended to Walter Bonefey’s daughters and eventual heirs; Agnes, wife, first, of John Fabian and secondly Nicholas Sharpe; and Alice, wife, first, of John Pashley (d.1468) and secondly Richard Nanseglos."
