Collectanea Topographica et Genealogica 1:324 etseq., "Extracts from
1. John = Anne Hampden.
2. Sir William Danvers, King's Justice of Common Pleas.
3. Anne Pury of Chamberhouse by Reading.
4. John Danvers of Cothorpe.
5. Jane Bruley.
6. William Pury.
So the answer is yes.
Kay Allen AG
I believe Kay Allen was interested in these Pury and Danvers lines because they descend to Langston of Caversfield (mentioned in another post) and thence to Alice (Freeman) (Thomson) Parke of Connecticut.

An extension to the ancestry of William Pury, no. 6 in Kay's list, is found in the Visitations of Berkshire, where he is called, however, John Pury.

7. (2nd wife of JOHN Pury, mother of Anne Pury Danvers) Isabel Wawne of Beverley

12. Thomas Pury, servant to King Henry IV
13. Maud Atmore

26. Will Atmore of Cookham (? Braye in the Wold)

52. John Atmore

104. Nicholas Atmore of Bray

208. John Atmore of Bray in the Wold

See pp. 53-54 of Rylands, ed., _Four Visitations of Berkshire_, vol. 2 ("Additional Pedigrees and Notes"):

Possibly contains some good clues, though seemingly no royal descents.

The Visitation of Oxfordshire (Harleian Society, Visitation Series, v. 5), p. 189 adds two generations to the Pury line: 24. Reignald [sic] Purye; 48. John Purye.

Rather than his great-grandfather, I suggest that this John atte More was likely to be John Pury's maternal uncle

I just realized how suspicious it is that John Pury's second wife is called "Wawne" and one of the lands to which he was given seisin here is called "Walleweyneslond""
