Marriage: Parish records show that in the year 1548 John was married to Helen or Ellen Warren_(Waryn) the daughter of Richard Warren and Alice Jenway in Hertfordshire, England. She was born Abt. 1529 in Bassingbourn, Cambridgshire, Eng. Her death was recorded at St. Leonard,N/E Chapel, London,England. -------------------- The will of John Foote of Royston, tallow chandler, was probated 18 July 1558; it mentions wife Helen, son Robert, son John Foot, daughter Aves Foote, daughter Elizabeth Foote. TAG 53 says that John is brother to Robert Foote who had sons Robert and John, daughters Elizabeth and Alice. This is based upon an anonymous pedigree in British Museum Additional MSS 5533, folio 99, quoted by Waters in "Genealogical Gleanings in England" p. 1285. It says Robert was of Royston, Cambridgeshire, descended out of Lincolnshire, married to an unknown woman who married, second (___) Hall, sgt. trumpeter to Queen Elizabeth. TAG 54 questions this anonymous pedigree, presenting evidence that John was actually the father of Robert and John. Among other things, this accounts for the fact that no probate could be found for Robert the father. John had children Robert and John, Elizabeth and a daughter called Avis or Alice/Alis (probably a copyist error) -- the same children attributed to "father Robert". On 19 January 1558/1559 at St. Peter Cornhill in London there is recorded the wedding of "John Haull, trumpetor and Ellen Foote, Widowe." The coincidence of children's names, spouses names, coupled with no findable will for Robert brings the authors to the conclusion John is the father, and the supposed father Robert is a confusion with John's eldest son.
