  • Notes 
    • Robert Marbury and Katherine Williamson were half third cousins once removed, both being descendants of Thomas Hawley (d. 1419 or 1420), Katherine through Thomas's first wife Margaret Brewse, and Thomas through an uncertain wife who may have been Dulcia Massey or perhaps an unknown wife between Margaret and Dulcia.

      From "The Well-Beloved Mother-in-law of Robert Marbury" by F. N. Craig, citation details below:

      In the funeral of Henry VII in 1509, [Robert Marbury] was a yeoman to the King's Grandame (that is, Henry VII's grandmother, Lady Margaret Beaufort, wife successively of Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond; Sir Henry Stafford; and Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby). In 1510, as yeoman usher of the Queen's Chamber, he had a grant to be feodary [i.e., one who holds land of an overlord on condition of homage] of the duchy of Exeter within county Devon, during [the king's] pleasure. In 1513, as Robert Marbury Jr. he was a feofee, along with Robert Marbury Sr. [his uncle], John Lenton [father of his son's future wife] and John Marbury, clerk. In 1514, his cousin William Blount, Lord Mountjoy, was the Queen's Chamberlain. In the same year, Robert Marbury, yeoman usher of the Queen's Chamber, was feodary noted above, for life. In 1517, he was appointed to be serjeant at arms, with 12d. a day in consideration of his services to Queen Catherine. In 1526, his yearly wage as serjeant at arms in the Royal Household was £18 5s, i.e., still 12d. a day.

      In the Lincolnshire Rebellion of October 1536, Robert Marbury appears as follows: In the examination of Sir Edward Madeson before the King's Council, Madeson, with his brother John Madeson and both his sons, then went up into Castrefeld to see the number of rebellious and there met Sir Wm. Askew and Marbery the serjeant and one Bonctcene of the Exchequer. The rebels took them all except Boneteync and Marbury. (Let. & Pap. Hen. VIII, 11:225-26, no. 568.)

      In a letter from Sir Robert Kyrkham to Richard Cromwell:

      "Yesterday night late" he was at Stanforde with Sir William Parre and others when Marbery and Madyson, the King's servants came in, having escaped from the rebels who they say are 20,000... (Let. & Pap. Hen. VIII, 11:248, no. 619).
