Not sure if this is the correct parent. Wiilliam Blenkensopp who married Mary Copperwaithe (shown as such in pedigrees like Fosters and Hist. Northumberland), not Margaret as the Ryedales book shows, had a will in 1581....even if he had children into his 60s, he could not have been the one who was mother of Anne Blenkinsopp, born sometime in the late 1470s-1490s.....
Here is another that shows Anne in an improbable generation; it is either another Christopher Ridley who married Anne Blenkinsop, or it is Anne herself misplaced. https://www.google.com/books/edition/Some_Feudal_Coats_of_Arms_and_Others/Nzw6AQAAMAAJ?hl=en&gbpv=1&dq=blenkinsopp+ridley&pg=PA22&printsec=frontcover
They mention a 1581 will by a William Blenkinsop in the Hist. Northumberland. Here it is: way to late for Anne: https://www.google.com/books/edition/Willis_and_Inventories_Illustrative_of_t/PVo4AQAAMAAJ?hl=en&gbpv=1&dq=blenkinsop+1581&pg=PA29&printsec=frontcover
Since the Nicholas Ridley the Bishop died in 1555, this Nicholas Ridlley mentioned could NOT be the Bishop: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Ridley-408 See also dictionary of National Biography
History of Northumberland again repeats this error by placing a woman born in the latter part of the 1400s, being born sometime in the 1500s: https://www.google.com/books/edition/A_History_of_Northumberland/lG_HJwJjMsUC?hl=en&gbpv=1&dq=blenkinsop+ridley&pg=PA131&printsec=frontcover
I am leaning on the father being John Blenkinsopp, for chronology reasons: file:///Users/michael/Downloads/BlankenshipOrigins1.pdf
However, if nothiing can be proven, I am leaning toward just leaving the spouse blank.
