I first found Elizabeth as the second wife of John Briscoe in the 1860 census of Hunt County, Texas, with two children named Medling from her previous marriage. She is reported born in Tennessee. 1860 Federal Census, Hunt County, Texas, 3 October, Precinct 8, P O Farmersville Collin County, p 39 (scan 340), Hse/Fam #985 John Briscoe 45 M Stock Raiser $1280 Real Estate $10000 Personal Born Virginia [born abt 1815] Elizabeth Briscoe 32 F b Tenn [born abt 1828] Caroline Briscoe 18 F b Mo [born abt 1842] Isaac N Briscoe 15 M b Mo [born abt 1845] John B Briscoe 14 M b Mo [born abt 1846] Ephraim Briscoe 11 M b Texas [born abt 1849] Theodocia Medling 7 F b Tenn [born abt 1853] Mary W Medling 5 F b Texas [born abt 1858] I checked on Medling names from Tennessee, and found a sparse genealogy listing a Caswell Medling, born in Rutherford County, Tennessee, in 1830. This reported that Caswell had died in Texas, but no county or date was mentioned and no documentation was given. This genealogy gave me the names and dates of Caswell's parents but no spouse. Caswell Medling Birth 1830 in Milton, Rutherford, Tennessee, Death in Texas Parents John Medlin 1792 - 1848, Sarah Susannah Lasater 1796 - 1845 -- Lyle, http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/5215144/person/1408509112?ssrc=&ftm=1 Checking out these clues, I found a marriage record in Rutherford County, Tennessee for a William H Medling and Elizabeth Lasiter. Look at the marriage date. This is about the time John Briscoe's wife Rebeca died. Elizabeth Medling Briscoe's first daughter was born about 1853, so this would match marriage in 1852. But how does the name William fit with Caswell? It sounds like two different individuals. But I cannot find any individuals that fit more closely. These details led to a marriage record in Rutherford County that seemed to fit, and the reference to the groom's name William Medling led to some other genealogies with confirming information.

The name Nannie Lawton on one of her photos in her sister's collection tells us that Nannie Terry married someone named Lawton. In early 2013, when I found this photo among those my father had left me, I had no information about Nannie's husband, and could not find anything in searches. Her sister, Julia Virginia Terry Jenkins, had written her name on the back of the photo as Nannie Lawton.

No details are known about Herlewin (Herluin), father of Ralph of Hunstanton.
Matilda was the heiress of Hunstanton. She is also referred to in some sources as Maud de Hunstanton. When she married Roland Le Strange (Rolleus Extraneus), the estate then passed into the Le Strange family and name. This established the Le Strange family in Norfolk. Dates for this couple given by the Hunstanton Le Strange Family Website are earlier than those reported by the Hart-Corbet-Le Strange genealogy and background information. No birth or death dates are given for Matilda, but the marriage date is 1112, compared with 1141 given by the Hart Family Website. A couple of sources have Maud as the wife of John Le Strange I, but the weight of facts and dominance of sources seem to indicate that Maud/Matilda was the mother of John I and the husband of his father Roel.
