  • Died: 1539
  • Notes: There is a William Whetenhall married Anne Cromer with dates 1463-1524 according to one family tree, no sources given. Another has birthdate as 1468.

There is a record of a will proven 1539 for a William Whetenhall esq of Peckham, Kent. Until I can get a copy, I have tentatively assumed that this is our William and that he died in 1539
