Bio at http://www.tudorplace.com.ar/Bios/GeorgeThrockmortonofCoughton.htm
William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Papers Vol2, No 4 (Apr 1894) pp 241-7 re Throckmorton says clearly that George was son of Catherine Marrow, not Elizabeth Baynham.
Notes by Jim Weber:
Sir George (or probably Thomas) Throckmorton, Knight, of Coughton, co. Warwick, d. 6 Aug 1552, son of Robert Throckmorton and Elizabeth Baynham. (There is a dispute as to his given name, but Clement is known to be a child of Katharine Vaux.). [Magna Charta Sureties]
Note: Even though MCS states "Sir George (or probably Thomas)" above, in line 8b-18, MCS states "Richard Throckmorton (d. 1547) of Higham Ferrers, co. Northampton, brother of Sir George (not Thomas) Throckmorton, husband of Katherine Vaux (94-13). Richard, Sir George, and their 1st cousin Simon Throckmorton, husband of Anne Louthe, were grandsons of Sir John Throckmorton and Eleanor Spinney." In 94-13 it says "Sir George (or probably Thomas)"; but in 8b-18 it says "Sir George (not Thomas)"--SO WHICH IS IT George or Thomas?
?Sir Thomas (or George) Throckmorton, Knt., of Coughton, co. Warwick, d. 6 Aug 1552, son of Robert and Elizabeth (Baynham) Throckmorton.?[Ancestral Roots]
Note: Even though both AR and MCS state the mother is Elizabeth Baynham. I am sticking with Catherine Marrow. Nearly everyone on World Connect has Catherine as mother; plus they have Elizabeth born about 1471, too late to be a 1st wife and mother of Thomas or George. Probably the mother is part of the controversy over whether his name was Thomas or George.?
Sheriff of Warwick and Leicester.
Living until 1553, Sir George had eight sons, eleven daughters and one hundred and twelve grandchildren.
