Married Elizabeth Bedingfield, one of 12 daughters of Francis Bedingfield [grandson of Sir Henry Bedingfield, of Oxburgh, co. Norfolk, Governor of the Tower ofLondon] and Catherine Fortescue, who all who became nuns (including Elizabeth who joined the Austin nuns at Bruges, after her husband died 2 years after her marriage).
(Miscellanea VI: Bedingfeld Papers. p240.)
[The only odd thing is that it says that her only daughter had already joined those nuns, and was her mother?s Novice Mistress - hardly possible if her husband died after two years of marriage!]
Said by some to be father of Marion, wife of Sir Alexander Bannerman (qv), but surely this is not right?
