About Anne Cheney

Anne Parr (c. 1456-1513), who married Sir Thomas Cheney of Irthlingborough.

Their daughter Elizabeth, would go on to marry the son of Nicholas Vaux, 1st Baron Vaux of Harrowden by his second wife, Anne Green; aunt of Catherine Parr. When Elizabeth married Lord Vaux, she was age 18 and he was age 14. While there were no blood relations, Lord Vaux's father, Nicholas, had been previously married to Elizabeth Cheney's grandmother, and had issue (see below), making Hon. Catherine, Alice, and Anne Vaux maternal aunts to Elizabeth Cheney. Through these connections Elizabeth, Lady Vaux and the 2nd Lord had Throckmorton cousins in common.[5]
