so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

m3. before 1580 William or Henry Deane of Dynes Hall
We24-2 Henry Wentworth of Mountnessing b about 1515
Visitation 1612 shows Henry as a generation earlier, as son of Henry Wentworth by Elizabeth Howard. We provisionally follow BEB1841 in showing him in this generation firstly because the dates make this seem slightly more likely, albeit not fully convincingly so, and secondly because there is a suspicion of error in Visitation which shows 2 Henrys for the previous generation, itself not necessarily a problem the first may have died young, but labelling both as the 2nd son.
m Agnes Hamond of Ramesden
i. Sir John Wentworth of Little Horksley, later of Gosfield b 1540, d 13.04.1588, rector of Gosfield
BEB1841 identifies Sir John's wife as Elizabeth St. Lawrence dau of Christopher St. Lawrence, Baron of Howth. We follow the Visitation which is supported by TCP Howth in identifying Elizabeth as his daughter and Dorothy Southwell as her mother.
m1 Elizabeth Haydon dau of Sir Christopher Haydon of Baconthorpe
a. John Wentworth of Gosfield b 1564, d 10.02.1613

We24 Margaret Wentworth b between 1500 and 1539
m John Barnes Berney of Norfolk
We25-2. Roger Wentworth of Felsted, later of Bocking
Visitation shows this Roger as of this generation but there is a suspicion of error as it identifies him as 3rd son but also identifies Thomas as 3rd son. Noting the confusion above with Henry, it is possible that Roger was 3rd son of Sir Roger of Cobham Hall rather than his younger brother. There are not enough known dates to help clarify the issue.

We25-5. Elizabeth Wentworth
Visitation 1558 shows Elizabeth as having married, first Richard Alington then _ Cheyney. Visitation 1612 shows just her marriage to Sir William Alington. As the Alington records show that Sir William married again after his marriage to Elizabeth, with no indication that there was a divorce, we presume she married just once to ...
