  • Millicent was the younger sister of Margaret Tiptoft, who married Richard Le Scrope's older brother Roger, 2nd Lord Scrope of Bolton.  Their parents were Robert Tiptoft b 1341 and Margaret Diencourt b 1343.  A couple of genealogies report her as married to a John FASTOLF Castlecomb, Wiltshire, England.  The date of marriage is given as January 1409.  This is after the death of her husband Stephen Scrope in 1405.  Interestingly, a daughter is reported of the second marriage, with the name Alice Fastolf, born 1404!  This is before the death of Stephen, so if the dates are correct, Alice would appear to be the child of Stephen Scrope, not of John Fastolfe.  But one wonders why shoe would have the surname of Fastolfe.  I find it interesting that the genealogies I have seen that report Millicent's husband as John Fastolf report no previous marriage to Stephen Strope.  Likewise the many genealogies of various lineages that I have found reporting on this family list Stephen as her only husband.  More careful sources, such as the articel in Wikipedia, report the dual marriage: "In 1408 he married Millicent, widow of Sir Stephen Scrope of Castle Combe in Wiltshire" [many sources report the wedding was actually in January 1409] --  Wikipedia, "John Fastolf,"  Millicent TIPTOFT Birth 12 Apr 1368 in Nettlestead, Suffolk, England, Death 25 Aug 1446 in Caistor Castle, Norfolk, , England Parents Robert TIPTOFT 1340-1372, Margaret DEINCOURT 1353-1380 Marriage Jan 1409 to John FASTOLF Castlecomb, Wiltshire, England Daughter:  Alice FASTOLF Birth 1404 in Coningsby, Lincolnshire, England, Death in Coningsby, Lincolnshire, England --  Proctor Narrow Family,  This and similar genealogies report that her place of death was Caistor Castle in Norfolk, a castle of John Fastolfe (Fastolf).  Modern sources spell the name Caister.  ============================================= Caister Castle is one of the four principal castles in Norfolk. It is built of brick, and is one of the earliest edifices in England constructed of that material after its rediscovery as suitable for building purposes.  It stands with its strong defences not far from the sea on the barren coast. It was built by Sir John Fastolfe, who fought with great distinction in the French wars of Henry V and Henry VI, and was the hero of the Battle of the Herrings in 1428, when he defeated the French and succeeded in convoying a load of herrings in triumph to the English camp before Orleans. --  "Caister Castle," =============================================
