Memorials of the Danvers family (of Dauntsey and Culworth): their ancestors ... By Francis Nottidge MacNamara


"The third son of John Danvers and Alice Verney was another John Danvers, who was in Holy Orders, and, as Aske tells us ('Collect. Topog. and Genealog.,' vol. i., p. 20), was a Doctor of both laws. In the year 1472 he released to his brother, Richard Danvers, any rights he might have in the manors which formerly belonged to his brother Robert (Additional Charter, 38,857). Lipscumb ('His. of Bucks," vol. iii., p. 376) states that John Danvers was Rector of Hogston on the presentation of Lady Clinton in the year 1414. But clearly Lipscumb confuses our John Danvers with another man of the same name, who, as we learn from the Lincoln Institutions, was made Rector of Hogston in 1414, after having held and officiated in another rectory--that of Apsley Guise, Beds. This would put back this John's birth to about the year 1390, and precludes his being our John Danvers, who we know died in the year 1504, and was not born till after A.D. 1400. Moreover, we learn from the Patent Roll (21 Henry VI., Part ii.) that John Danvers, jun. (sic), was preferred that year (1442) to the living of Bourne in the diocese of Canterbury (Harleian MS. 6,968, p. 65), while from the Lincoln Registers we learn that in the year 1431 John Danvers was presented by Thomas Baldington (dom. de Aldebury, his brother-in-law) to the church of Aldebury c.cantria Merson Trussell."

"Dr. Danvers died in the year 1504. His will (27 Holgrave) is as follows:
