About Helena Tyndale

Helena Bigod De Felbrigg: Heiress 1: of Sir Symond Bygod of Felbrigge Heiress 2: of her brother Thomas for Breisworth Manor, Suffolk

information to mine:

The 3rd Baron's daughter Elizabeth had married Roger de Felbrigg (1316-1362) from a prominent Norfolk family and her heirs were her great-granddaughter Helena de Felbrigg (1399-1426), also heiress of the Felbrigg family, and her husband William Tyndale (1397-1426). Helena and William were the great-grandparents of Sir William Tyndale (1494-1536), protestant reformer and translator of the Bible into English (and ultimately martyred for it).

Somebody's gotten at least two Alanas mixed up. This one was related to Queen Anne of Bohemia.

"By his wife Alana, daughter of one Barrey of Wales, who survived him till 1456 (Cal. Inq. post mortem, iv. 276), he had two sons and two daughters (Harl. MS. 381, f. 168; Visit. Bedfordshire, p. 198; Visit. Norfolk, p. 304)."
