Notes

  • Sources on this era of history vary a lot on dates and even places.Genealogies related to different family lineages have differentinformation for various individuals.  And different family sourceswill have different bits of complementary details.

    One source had 1488 as the birth year for Anna (Anne) Catherine Vaux.This seems to be an error.  Another set of sources (various populargenealogies seem to simply repeat each other) use a more reasonabledate.  I have, however, used a third date, provided by the Le StrangeFamily Website.

    The very exact death date of 14 Apr 1569 sounds credible andauthoritative.  This source, however, has many errors in variousdates, that conflict with marriage dates and ages, etc.  Thus I havefollowed another set of sources that give the date of only the year1571.

    Sources also differed on the place of death.  The source witherroneous dates is the same as the place of birth.  Some genealogiesfollow this information, while other sources have the Warwickshiresite.  I have used Warwickshire from what I can determine at thispoint.  I have not found sufficient information to definitivelyresolve the place of death of Anna Catherine Vaux.

    Different genealogies have different configurations for this family.Some suggest that Catherine and Anne Vaux are the same person, a childof Elizabeth Fitzhugh and Nicholas Vaux, 1st Baron of Harrowden.Others report Anne and Catherine as two separate children, and reporttheir separate husbands.  Others report different parents for Anne orCatherine Vaux.

    This may be one reason for the broad discrepancy of birth datesreported by the various genealogies for Anne Vaux, who married SirThomas Le Strange, born about 1494.  This is the date reported byseveral sources for Thomas' wife Anne Vaux, as well as Thomas LeStrange.  Others report her born as early as 1488 or as late as 1513,which makes it impossible to match the children commonly reported byvarious family sources as her children with Thomas Le Strange.Sources which report a marriage date for Thomas and Anna have the dateof 21 May 1513.  It makes me thin that the sources who report thatAnne was born in 1513 have confused the birth date with the marriagedate, or have confused two different Anne Vauxs, as discussed in theproblem of the two different sets of parents for Anne Vaux.

    For instance, in the Familypedia article, the opening summary reads:
    "Thomas Le Strange was born circa 1492 in Hunstanton, Norfolk, Englandto Sir Robert Le Strange and Margaret Le Strange and died circa 16January 1545 in Hunstanton, Norfolk, England of unspecified causes. Hemarried Anne Vaux 21 May 1513"
    --  Sir Thomas Le Strange (1493-1545),http://familypedia.wikia.com/wiki/Sir_Thomas_Le_Strange_(1493-1545)

    This would be easy to misread to thin that the date here after Anne'sname is here birth date.  But the factbox on the page clarifies thiswith the following format, specifically stating that the May 1513 dateis the wedding date.

    This Familypedia source provides aditonal informatoin abotu Thomas andhis life events.

    "S¦ir Thomas Le Strange of Hunstanton inherited the Norfolk estates ofhis nephew, John who died without issue aged 13 in 1514. His careerwas influenced by his father, Robert, of Elsing manor, who had died 3years prior, and whom had arranged for his children to marry well.Indeed Sir Thomas $and his siblings did, and his early arrangedmarriage to Anne Vaux, in 1501, who was 5th in descent from John ofGaunt, enriched his life by bringing them 16 children."
    --  Sir Thomas Le Strange (1493-1545),http://familypedia.wikia.com/wiki/Sir_Thomas_Le_Strange_(1493-1545)

    Some sources report the parents of Anne Vaux, wife of Thomas LeStrange b 1494, as Nicolas Vaux and Anne Greene.  This appears to bean error, and may be a different Nicholas Vaux and a differentdaughter named Anne.  Because of so many similar persons and names inevery generation of many of these noble lines, it is quite possibleboth the Anne Vauxs married a Thomas Le Strange.  Most family sourcesreport that Anne Vaux who married Thomas Le Strange b abt 1494 was thedaughter of Nicholas Vaux and Elizabeth Fitzhugh.

    The Le Strange Family Website is a very good resource for familyconfiguration and some family insights.  This source lacks manydetails of dates and places and does not have much comment or sourcedocumentation.  It seems to reflect family sources and insights.  Thisand other family sources that lack details but provide strong familyconfiguration, are a good point of comparison for more formalresources that provide more details and context or backgroundinformation but lack family insights.

    Another family site by a current Le Strange descendant is very helpfulwith many details that also match other family sources on the familyconfiguration and names.

    Wikipedia usually provides high quality and reliable information andis excellent for historical and social context missing from the barefamily sources.  This is a good source for clarifying relationshipsand family connections for similarly-named people in these noblelines.  This source includes among the children of Nicholas Vaux andElizabeth Fitzhugh two daughters, Anne and Catherine and theirseparate husbands.  No dates of birth are provided for thesedaughters.

    After the death of Sir William Parr c. 1484, Elizabeth re-marriedNicholas Vaux, 1st Baron Vaux of Harrowden c. 1483/4 as his firstwife. Their issue includes:
    Hon. Catherine Vaux (abt 1490-c. 1571), married Sir GeorgeThrockmorton of Coughton and had issue. Their descendants include thecurrent queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II, the Duchess ofCornwall and the late Princess of Wales.
    Alice Vaux (d. 1543), married Sir Richard Sapcote c. 1501. No issue.
    Anne Vaux, married Sir Thomas Le Strange (1493-1545) and had issue.

    Tudorplace is a good source for these medieval noble and royalfamlilies, but often lacks details of dates and laces.  This osurce ishelpful for gaining a persopective across lineages and seeing thebroader interconnections.  Because Le Strange was such a prominent andextensive lineage and intermarried with most other noble and royalfamilies in England and to some extent France and the continent, thisis helpful for critical comaprison where discrepanices occur.

    In speaking about Thomas Le Strange, "born circa 1492 in Hunstanton,Norfolk, England," Familypedia comments on his attendance by his wifeAnne before his demise, and about the disposition of his titles andestate.

    "His health begun deteriorating at Christmas time 1540, with kidneystones and made him bedridden for weeks. His doctor who Anne paid for"castyng of my husbonds water & for his counsell", treated him againat Christmas 1543. Anne took some wine to her husband "Whan yow Warsykke on the collyke & ston" but a recurrence two years later, in 1545ended his life suddenly. Aged about 51, his will was still incompleteand his natural heir, Sir Nicholas, succeeded him and executed hisgrants to his brothers in 1547, one of whom was Richard who foundedthe Irish Moystown Branch."
