  • The sons of Roger Wentworth and Lady Roos were three, viz., Sir Philip Wentworth, the narrative of whose career follows; Henry Wentworth of Codham Hall, Essex, who has his place in the account of the Gosfield house of Wentworth; and Thomas the priest. The latter was presented by his mother, 16 July 1474, to the rectory of Barrow, Suffolk; and by his nephew Sir Henry to Little Blakenham rectory, 15 February 1492; he seems to have died in 1501, as in that year the next presentations to both rectories occurred. There is a brass in Duxford Church, Cambridgeshire, to "Thomas Wyntworth," vicar, who died 21 September 1489;¹ but only through impugning the accuracy of the above dates can this vicar be supposed to have been the son of Roger Wentworth and Lady Roos. They had also three daughters whose marriages will be seen by reference to the Pedigree.
