of Michelgrove, Sussex.
He mar Mary Sidney [dau of William Sidney].
Mary was said to be dau of "the first William Sidney of Penshurst Place". But this is impossible given the dates. That William Sidney was born 1482.
Mary must be dau of an earlier William Sidney.

John died 20 Jan 1459 (at the time regarded as end of 1458).
