    ---
    Edward Rokewood or Rookwood, gentleman, in the year 1577 was seated at Euston Hall, Suffolk.
    His first wife was the daughter of Sir Anthony Browne, Viscount Montagu, and his second a widow- named Tirwhit.
    Edward Rokewood (fl 1577) was the eldest son and heir of Nicholas Rokewood of Euston, chief Prothonotary of the Common Pleas 1543 and M.P. for Thetford 1554, who succeeded to the estate on the death of his elder brother Roger s.p.m. in 1558. They [Nicholas and Roger] were the only children of Edmund Rokewood of Euston by his first wife, a record of whose name I do not find ; but his second wife was Alice daughter of William London, by whom he had five more children. This lady was left a young widow, and she was remarried first to Sir Thomas Bedingfeld of Oxburgh (vb.s.p. 15 March 1538, succeeded by his brother Robert, a priest, rector of Oxburgh, Norfolk, 1512-1539), and secondly to Thomas Lord Burgh, and left issue, by his lordship, William, 5th Baron Burgh, and other children.
