About Joan Redman
There is a conflict as to the identity of this lady. Redmans of levens Joan found a husband in Marmaduke Gascoigne, of Caley, son of Sir William Gascoigne, of Gawthorpe, and probably died without offspring. According to Sir George Duckett, who bases his statement principally on the Vincent Pedigrees, Joan (or Jane, as he calls her) had for first husband William Duckett, of Flintham, in Nottinghamshire, and by him had two sons, the younger of whom was Sir Lionel Duckett, Lord Mayor of London (temp. Eliz.). According to the pedigree given by Sir George (Duchetiana, p. 218) the elder son of this alleged marriage made his will in 1545, at a date when Joan, his alleged mother, was but thirty-six years of age, and scarcely likely to be the mother of a son who had reached manhood.
