About Elizabeth Verney

"In 1559 he (Sir Thomas Palmer) had become guardian of Elizabeth Verney, Elizabeth was one of the many godchildren of Elizabeth I, and heiress of the Fairfield Estate in Somerset. Born seven days before her father's death in 1556, she had been a ward of three different guardians appointed successively by Edward VI, Mary and Elizabeth. When the last of them surrendered his rights, the queen appointed Palmer, who betrothed the heiress to his son William when she was fourteen. It was through Elizabeth Verney that the Palmers acquired Fairfield in 1571 and remodeled the house there'"

"Many researchers have incorrectly recorded Walter of Stonington as a son of Sir John and/or William Palmer and Elizabeth Verney. Some records even show Sir John and William as one person, William John Palmer. The death date of William Palmer proves most of the those assertions incorrect.

In reality, a William Palmer I married Elizabeth Verney and their son William II, who died in his second year, is incorrectly thought to be Walter. It is probable Elizabeth Verney married or had children with both William and John Palmer, sons of Thomas Palmer creating the confusion.

Walter's ancestry, or more correctly lack thereof, has been confirmed by Elmer Hall Palmer, Society Genealogist, of the Walter Palmer Society and, from the Parham House "The Family of Palmer" pedigree chart. [January1999]"

William Palmer b. 1570 in , Stepney, London, Middlesex, England
