Dau of John Nevil of Sutton.
Was party with her husband to the sale of the Manor of Sutton, with lands in Skegness, Winthorp, and Burgh, to William Smyth, Archdeaon of Lincoln.
She is commonly stated to have been the daughter of Sir John Neville of Sutton,^ or Mablethorpe, Lincs.; but it must be confessed that there is no trace of such a Sir John Neville or a daughter Amphyllis in any of the Lincolnshire pedigrees.
The monument of Sir Robert Dormer, the husband of Jane, the martyr's elder sister in the church of Wing, Bucks., states that his wife's mother was the daughter and heir of John Nevell of Rolleston. Likewise the pedigree of Newdigate supplied to the heralds when they visited the County of Surrey, inaccurate though it may be in some respects, describes her as "Amphilis daughter of John Nevill of Rolleston in comitatu Nott.
This connection is supported by the arms inscribed on the cloak of Amphyllis Newdegate on the brass at Harefield which are the 13 Nevill arms (gules a saltire ermine). According to Camm, g Camm, p. 5-6. 10So. William Betham in his Baronetage of England, Vol. III (1803) p. 12. His account of Newdigate family (pp. 10-23) is useful, but should be read with caution. ^List of Monumental Brasses in the British Isles by Mill Stephenson (1926)
