  • Notes 
    • She is mentioned but not named in William Torrey's will. It has been claimed that she was Elizabeth Fry or Frye, sister of George Fry of Combe St. Nicholas and Weymouth. Douglas Richardson's Royal Ancestry (citation details below) names her that, although he does not identify her with George Fry.
