  • Notes: her daughter Margaret married John Somerville of Edstone (Edreston), Warwickshire (b. 1560 - d. 1583). In 1583, convinced that it was his duty as a Catholic to kill Queen Elizabeth, Somerville set out to do so, telling anyone who would listen of his plans. When arrested, he implicated Margaret, her parents, and the family priest, Hugh Hall, who lived with the Somervilles in the guise of their gardener. All five were sentenced to death but Hall and the women were pardoned. Margaret had two daughters by Somerville, Elizabeth (who married Thomas Warwick) and Alice.
