While poking around the Quarles family, I discovered a missing link in my database where
Anne Quarles, co-heiress of her father John called "merchant adventurer" (he bap 21 Oct 1563)
George Turpin of Knaptoft
and were the parents of
Elizabeth Turpin, sole heiress of her father
John Pretyman of Lodington Leics, Knt and Bnt "eldest son"
and were the parents of several children, not here enumerated
In trying to place better dates on these people I threw some of the names on the wall of Access to Archives and fished back this
Le Neve's Pedigrees does not know who this woman was, just calling her "daughter of Mints" but here we get the answer
"Margaret Prettyman, widow of John, daughter & heir of Sir Matthew Mennes, on behalf of her son John, an infant."
