  • Notes 
    • HENRY WOLLASTON, the second son of William of Perton, and the brother of
      William of Trescot Grange, is misnamed William in the pedigree which his grandson
      Sir John Wollaston entered at the Visitation of London in 1633-4; a mistake
      which has led to endless confusion in subsequent pedigrees. His true name is proved
      by the exemplification of arms to his son Henry in 1616, who distinctly describes
      himself as the son of Henry of Perton. (17) He was a yeoman at Perton, where he
      occupied his father's farm and homestead, and married •••. Elliot of Penn, whose
      Christian name is lost, and by whom he had issue four children: I. RICHARD; .
      n. HENRY; III. EDWARD; IV. A DAUGHTER, married Thomas Perry of Trescot,
      and died before 1601, leaving issue.
