c. Sir John Fortescue of Salden House, Chancellor of the Exchequer b 1533, d 23.12.1607
BE1883 and Visitation Buckingamshire, 1634, Fortescue of Salden disagree over this and the next generation. BE1883 shows Sir John's wives as Alice dau of Edward Ashfield and Eleanor dau of Edward Hubbard, with 3 children by Eleanor: Sir Francis, Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, Sir John ancestor of later owners of Salden, and Margery. Provisionally, but not least because Visitation includes reference to daughter Eleanor's husband's name being originally shown as Edward but that being crossed out, we follow Visitation but note that this should be viewed with some caution.

1 Sir Francis Fortescue of Salden, Sheriff of Buckinghamshire d 1623
By following Visitation we may effectively be assuming that BE1883 was wrong in viewing Sir John as his brother rather than his son. Visitation, supported by TCP Shrewsbury and the Fortescue web site mentioned just below, shows Sir Francis's wife as ...
