From http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/GEN-MEDIEVAL/2005-07/...

1) In his will dated 18 Apr 1547, Edward calls Elizabeth "My wife of 18 years" thus putting their marriage at 1528/9 2) The date of a will is only a vague idea of when a person died (AFT 18 Apr 1547) and in-fact Elizabeth's own father did not die until quite a long while after he made his will. However, today I have found the wardship of Edward's son William grated to Elizabeth's father William. The date of this grant is 18 Feb 1548 and states that Edward is deceased. 3) This son William Boughton is said to have married Jane Coningsby of Hampton Court and their child, Edward Boughton, was born in 1572


  1. FILE - Last will of Edward Boughton, he leaves the lands in Brownsover, which he lately purchased, to Elizabeth his wife, for 18 years, to the 'fynding' of his son Richard, and his daughter, Agnes, who is to receive £120 on her 19th birthday, and the rest of the profits of the said land are to go to Richard. And of the lands which Dame Elizabeth Barrington holds for her lifetime: 2 parts of them after her death are to go to Richard until William is 21. His wife Elizabeth, William Willington his father-in-law, Reynold Dugby and Thomas Cave are his executors. - ref. CR162/470 - date: 18th Apr. 1547
