About Inez de Albernos and Salinas
Inez de Albernos and Salinas, d. 1503, according to Lady Cecilie Goff in A Woman of the Tudor Age, "A sister of Lady Willoughby [Maria de Salinas, mother of Catherine Willoughby, duchess of Suffolk], Lady Inez of Albernos and Salinas, married Frances [sic] Guevara of Stanyott in Lincolnshire, and six shillings are paid to 'Mr. Guevara's man, which brought two oxen in present to my master' while a half-year’s annuity of £15 is paid to Mr. Guevara." This information was taken from the Household Accounts of the duchess's household for February 1560/1. Earlier in the same volume, Goff gives the names of Maria de Salinas's parents as Martin de Salinas and Josepha Gonzales de Sales. The Oxford DNB agrees with this but, as is so often the case, there is disagreement among scholars on this point. If Maria and Inez were sisters, then they were two of at least six children born to Juan Sancriz de Salinas (d.c.July 1495) and Inez Albernos/Albornos/Albornoz. Their uncle, Martin de Salinas (d. September 28, 1503) took over their upbringing. A list of Spanish ladies remaining in England with Catherine of Aragon in 1500 includes the "daughter of Inez Dalbornoz." This was probably not Maria de Salinas, as most of her daughter's biographers agree that she did not arrive in England until c.1503, when she replaced Maria de Rojas, in Catherine's service. If this daughter was the Inez who is the subject of this entry, then she followed the tradition of using her mother's surname, apparently a not uncommon practice in Spain. She appears to have returned to her native land, where she married Juan (not Francis) Velez de Guevara (sometimes spelled Govery by the English) of Segura/Sejuia. It was their son, Francisco (Sir Francis) Velez (Velles) de Guevara (d. February 10, 1592/3), who settled in England c.1552, when he received a pension of £30 from his cousin, the duchess of Suffolk. Francis Guevara apparently remained in England during the reign of Queen Mary, while the duchess was in exile on the Continent, although he later came to share her Protestant beliefs. He settled in Stenigot, Lincolnshire and married Denise Reade of Boston on January 5, 1555/6. After her death, he wed Anne Egerton (d. 1586), sister of Sir Charles Egerton of Markenfield, Yorkshire. He had numerous children, all of whom remained in England and married into English gentry families. There is no indication that his mother was with him in England.
