Apologies for a question chronologically off-topic; medieval lineages are implicated. At Genealogics the wife of Rev. Charles Norcote/Northcote of Templequinlan (c 1617-1661/62) and mother of Rev. John Norcott of Ballygarrett (1636-1719) appears as NN Aylesbury, a daughter of Sir Thomas Aylesbury (d. 1657, Breda) and Anne Denman.
I am looking for that claim's source. Leo van de Pas kindly contacted the person who supplied the pedigree, who remembered her source as Robert George Maunsell's History of Maunsell. That book is a major study for these Norcotts but includes no identity for the mother of Rev. John Norcott. I find references to a near descendant with middle name Hyde (Frances, dau of Sir Thomas Aylesbury and Anne Denman m. Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon), but I've not managed to locate a no source for the claimed Norcote-Aylesbury marriage and see no obvious signs of association between these families.
Does anyone know whether there is a good source for the identity of the mother of Rev. John Norcott of Ballygarrett?
