  • Notes 
    • Edward Stoughton's will mentions "his daughters Susan, Martha, and Sara" and, separately, "his daughter Susan Cole."

      Ellen's will, proved 20 Jun 1575, mentions "her late husband Laurence Omer", next to whom she asks to be buried, and, puzzlingly, "her son and daughter Susan Cole."

      Her brother Thomas Stoughton's will, proved 17 Jun 1591, mentions "his sister Cole."

      It is unclear from these wills whether Edward Stoughton's daughter Susan who married a Cole was a daughter of his first wife Mary Exhurst or of his second wife Ellen, but the estimable Janet and Robert Wolfe (citation details below) place her as a daughter of the second wife.
