Note from David Parsons:
Blomfield continues "in right the basis of Margaret's and Alana's inheritance to the Bohemian Throne, the States of Bohemia sent a depution to her male heir, Sir William Tyndale, grandson to William the husband of Alana. He being knighted at the Coronation (Creation) of Arthur Prince of Wales, it was the occasion of his declaration as Heir of the Kingdom of Bohemia. Sir William, K.B., nevertheless declined this offer to become the Bohemian King. No reason is known.
Three generations later, Umphrey Tyndall, D.D. fourth Dean of Ely Cathedral, President of Queens' College, Cambridge and Chancellor of Lichfield was described in the words of tha day 'descended of a very ancient and noble family of his Name, seaated in Redenhall in Norfolk, and Son of Sir Thomas Tyndall, Knight of Hockwood in that County', where probably he was born about the year 1550. Umphrey was thus great-grandson of the Sir William Tyndale, husband of Alana and the daughter of Margaret of Bohemia. A second invitation to the Throne of Bohemia was received by this worthy man.
The Heirs of Elizabeth de Felbrigg née Scales The 3rd Baron's daughter Elizabeth had married Roger de Felbrigg (1316-1362) from a prominent Norfolk family and her heirs were her great-granddaughter Helena de Felbrigg (1399-1426), also heiress of the Felbrigg family, and her husband William Tyndale (1397-1426). Helena and William were the great-grandparents of Sir William Tyndale (1494-1536), protestant reformer and translator of the Bible into English (and ultimately martyred for it).
