    Is this him?:
    The callings of the mayors [of Beverly] suggest that several occupations were predominant among those who ruled the town; at least 12 were tanners, 11 drapers, 10 mercers, and 7 maltsters, while 5 described themselves as gentlemen and one was an attorney. Their wills show that some of the governors were men of substance. Edward Nelthorpe, mercer and draper, for example, left silver table ware, gold rings, two houses in Toll Gavel, and 1,693 in money.
    Elizabeth, dau of Edward Nelthorpe of Beverley, married Richard Sandwith, and had a son b 1632.
    In 1607 Edward Nelthorpe of Beverley, Gent had licence to be married to Elizabeth, dau of Ralph Freeman of Beverley, decd, at St. John's, Beverley. Took place 3 May, 1608. If it was this Edward, Elizabeth was evidently not mother of Anne, who married in 1614.
