Sir Reginald Bray purchased the wardship of Jane, dau. and heiress of Richard Halywell, Esq., that she might become the wife of his nephew, as appears by deed dated 12 Feb 1497, made between the said Sir Reginald and Sir John Norbury, her grandfather, in contemplation of "a marriage to be had between Edmund Bray, son of John Bray, brother of the same Sir Reginald, and Jane Halywell, daughter and heir presumptive of Richard Halywell, esq. cousin and heir apparent of Sir John Norbury, (that is to say), daughter of Anne, who was the daughter of the said Sir John Norbury". In consideration of three hundred marks paid by Sir Reginald, Sir John settled immense estates upon his said heir, in the counties of Warwick, Worcester, Surrey, and Hants.
Jane Hallighwell was the daughter of Sir Richard Hallighwell, Halliwell, or Holywell (c.1462-July 24,1506) and Jane Norbury. She married Edmund, 1st baron Bray (1484-October 18,1539) and had by him one son and ten daughters, all of whom are shown with her on the memorial brass in the Church of St. Mary the Virgin in Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire. Those for whom there are records were Anne (d.November 1,1558), Elizabeth (c.1513-1573), Frideswide (b.c.1516), Mary(c.1518-1569), Frances (c.1522-May 27,1592), John (c.1523-November 18,1557), and Dorothy (c.1524-October 31,1605). By 1545, Lady Bray had remarried, taking as her second husband Sir Urian Brereton (c.1505-March 19,1578) of Handforth Hall.
