Parents: William Norreys b. 1390 and Christian Strech


  1. Thomas Bulstrode

Children include

  1. Jane BULSTRODE (m. Sir Walter Hungerford)



However, there is conflicting information in regards to the above information;

Lady Alice Norreys (previously Dame Alice Norreys) (c. 1405 – c. 1450) was an English Lady of the Most Noble Order of the Garter.

Alice was probably born at Yattendon Castle, her family's Berkshire seat. She was the daughter and heiress of Sir Richard Merbrook of Yattendon. She married Sir John Norreys around 1425 and the couple inherited Yattendon Castle about 1440. As well as Yattendon and Ockwells Manor in Bray, they spent much of their life resident in London where Sir John was Master of the Wardrobe to King Henry VI. They had four children: 1)Sir William Norreys (1433-4 January 1507) 2)John Norreys, Sheriff of Oxfordshire and Berkshire 3)Agnes Norreys, married William Bulstrode of Upton in Buckinghamshire (The mentioned Agnes in question) 4)Lettice Norreys, married Sir John Harcourt of Stanton Harcourt in Oxfordshire

Alice was created a Lady of the Most Noble Order of the Garter in 1448. She died sometime after 1448 and was probably buried alongside her husband in the Norreys Chapel (of St. Nicholas) in Bray Church in Berkshire.

Compiled and Researched by HRH Prince Kieren de Muire Von Drakenberg

Notes: Therefore, it appears that Agnes Norreys (wife of William Bulstrode) is the daughter of Lady Alice Norreys (previously Dame Alice Norreys) nee Merbrook (daughter of daughter and heiress of Sir Richard Merbrook of Yattendon) and Sir James Norreys the Keeper of the Wardrobe for King Henry VI of England.

Therefore, Sir William Norreys of Ockholt and Christian/Christina Norreys nee Sereth/Stretch are the Grandparents instead of parents of Agnes Norreys of Bray.
