If Henry Danvers died in 1456, how can he be the father of Dorothy (Danver) Dayrell b. 1479? Also, it has his marriage date as 1464, but this is after 1456.

Have changed his death date to circa 1483.

Last date recorded for him is 18 Dec.1483, Gift of his goods and chattels. (C.C.R.1476-85 pp.353-4)

By the way, what does C.C.R. stand for?

Calendar of Close Rolls.

Wikipedia has a page about them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close_Roll
