Family notes:

·         The difficulties of dealing with the Lewknor pedigree were noted by Durrant Cooper in S.A.C., III., 90. No definitive parent for Robert, in an extensive Lewknor family, was found; nor were many associated historical records.

Children of Robert and Eleanor:

i. Jane Lewknor (46175), born 1503 in Sussex, England.
