    Notes:

    "In 1459 there was an assignment from the old trustees of the Wentworth property, of whom Walter Calverley was one, to a new set of trustees (No. 371). This transaction no doubt indicates the coming of age of John Wentworth's son, Walter's grandson, which would show that he was born in 1438." [The Calverley Charters, citation details below.]

    If this is so, it suggests that the younger John Wentworth was born in approximately 1415-1420, thus about ten or fifteen years old when his wardship and marriage were sold in 1430 and 1431. This would also suggest that the elder John Wentworth died in same range, 1415-1420.

    Thomas married Jane Mirfield about 1475. Jane (daughter of Oliver Mirfield and Isabel Savile) was born in in of Howley, Yorkshire, England; died before 1 Apr 1523; was buried in Kirkby, Yorkshire, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

  1. 5.  Oliver Wentworth Descendancy chart to this point (4.Thomas4, 3.Joan3, 2.Walter2, 1.Joan1) was born about 1490 in of Goxhill, Glanford Brigg, Lincolnshire, England; died between 7 Dec 1558 and 28 Jan 1559.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Aft 7 Dec 1558

    Notes:

    Some experts have expressed doubt that he was a son of Thomas Wentworth of North Elmshall and Jane Mirfield. But he was clearly of gentry rank to have married Isabel Soothill. And Jane Mirfield's father was an Oliver -- not a common name in England at the time. This Oliver is the first known Wentworth thus named. Having waffled over this issue, as of 20 April 2017 we're restoring the link.

    Oliver married Isabel Soothill about 1510. Isabel (daughter of Richard Soothill and Agnes) was born before 1489; died after 1544. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
