    Born of Raynesford Hall, Lancaster? Seems odd that he is given a Lancashire connection given that his father was said to be of Suffolk and Essex. However it sort of ties in with this from Pimbley?s Dictionary of Heraldry:
    (Stanmore-Magna, co. Middlesex, Dallington, co. Northampton, Tew, co. Oxford, and co. Warwick; confirmed by Camden, Clarenceux, as the arms of CHARLES RAYNESFORD, and ROBERT RAYNESFORD, sixth in descent from JOHN RAYNESFORD, of Raynesford Hall, co. Lancaster).
    ARMS:..Argent (silver) a cross Sable (black).
    CREST:..A roebuck's head erased Sable (black) attired Or (gold).
    ?...Sir John Raynsford attended Henry Vlll to "the Field of the Cloth of Gold." His will is dated Sept 12, 1521. ...?
    (Notes and Queries.1925; CXLVIII: 328-330. BRITISH SETTLERS IN AMERICA. by RANSFORD.)
