People - don't get played as a chump. This lady was not an Earl's daughter.


This Joan is not Lady Joan Howard, daughter of Charles Howard, 1st Earl of Nottingham and Admiral of the Navy who defeated the Armada because Charles did not have any daughter by the name of Joan.

Scott is an important noble line, but perhaps Edmund was somewhat modest in rank to marry the daughter of an earl. Edmund is likely to have married someone of suitable rank, probably from another noble line. This Joan may very well be a Howard, which is a very long noble line, with many other branches stemming from the same progenitor, but the connection to this particular Howard, Charles Howard Earl of Nottingham had to be removed, as it is an historical fact that he had no daughter named Joan.

  • Edmund Scott appears in the records of Rattlesden in 1569 as a "Questman", a parish officer.

In 1588-89, he was a church warden and in 1593, he was a collector. In 1611, Edmund Scott, "Sr." served again as collector. His age at death was probably exaggerated.

This shipping list, given by both Drake and Hotten, is divided into two parts, those who took the oath of allegiance and those who did not, the latter being children under age.
