K. Morton & Sons, 1909), 21, reports that John Gainsford’s inquisition post mortem names his eldest son John as age 30 and more on 8 February 1450/1. Agnes was not named in John Gainsford’s will, but her identity as the sister of his sons John and William is confirmed by a court case (p. 18 in the Gainsford book, also discussed in Attree and Booker, 47:58–60) involving the abduction of Agnes’ daughters, Margery and Elizabeth Wakehurst, by Nicholas and Richard Culpepper, brothers of her second husband John Culpepper. Agnes’ first husband was Richard Wakehurst, son of Richard and Elizabeth Wakehurst..."
