Data on this and related families appear in Joseph James Muskett, Suffolk Manorial Families, (Exeter: William Pollard & Co., Ltd., 1903–14), 1:108-31, with many abstracts from original records. Muskett’s assignment of parents to Elizabeth Powell (pp. 132-5) is speculative and relies heavily on evidence from armorial quarterings. I have not subjected this proposal to intensive analysis.
