married Agnes, executrix to her husband, 1525. Issue: -------------------- Various websites make reference to Robert Haffenden, a 16th century Jurat [Alderman] of Tenterden, Kent, presumably because he is alleged to have had descendants who were early settlers in New England. Most of these have wild guesses as to his dates; there is an entry in Burke's Landed Gentry which is also quite inaccurate. Here is what can be pieced together of this family:

Thomas Haffenden of Tenterden, died 1525, his will was dated 24 October 1525, proved Archdeacon's Court, Canterbury, 11 December 1525 (Vol. 17, fol. 16):
