Alice Squire was the daughter of Sir Oliver Squire (Squier/Squyer) of Southby, Hampshire (c.1480-c.1505). Her mother is sometimes given as Margaret Myrrffun. Alice married three times. Her first husband was John Brigandine (Bryganten, Brykynden, or Brockenden) of Southampton, by whom she had a daughter, Alice (x. March 14,1551) and a son, John (d.1563+). Her second husband was Edward Mirfyn of London (d.1528), by whom she had no children. Thirdly, she married Edward North (1496-December 31, 1564). They had four children, Christiana (c.1529-March 20, 1563/4), Roger (February 27, 1530-December 3, 1600), Thomas (1535-June 1601), and Mary (c.1538-November 1558). It was through Alice's third husband that her daughter from her first marriage met her future husband, Thomas Arden of Faversham, Kent. On February 15, 1551, Arden was murdered and Alice was found guilty of plotting the crime. She was tried and found guilty and burnt to death in Canterbury. In spite of the notoriety, Edward North was created Baron North of Kirtling in 1554 and as Lady North, Alice was often at court during the last year of her life. She was buried on August 22, 1560.
