  • Notes 
    • ELIzABETH WOLLASTON married Edward Wollaston of Perton, the brother of
      her sister Alice's husband. She died before 1616, and was the motherf of Sir John
      Wollaston, the Lord Mayor, as will be seen hereinafter.

      The pedigrees differ as to which of William Wollaston's daughters was the widow of Smyth when
      she married her cousin. It might have been supposed that it was Elizabeth, and that she was the
      Elizabeth Smyth who married Edward Wollaston at Tettenhall on 8th November 1604, (10) but that this
      Elizabeth conld not be the mother of Edward's children, for his eldest son William was married in 1610,
      and his youngest son Henry was hom in 1593. Sir John Wollaston distinctly says in the pedigree, which
      he signed at the Visitation of 1632-4, that his mother Elizabeth was the daughter of William Wollaston
      of Trescot.
