    His dau Elizabeth (and coheiress of her grandfather) married Henry Wingfield. Their son Harbottle Wingfield owned Crowfield Hall near Letheringham in early 17th century. Elizabeth Wingfield?s maternal grandmother Joan Clerke was Henry Wingfiled?s stepmother.
    ?At the close of the 14th-century, when Hadleigh was in the forefront of the industry, the number of narrow cloths made in Suffolk outnumbered broad cloths by nearly thirteen to one.  Production of straits depended on narrow looms normally operated by one weaver, whilst whole cloth production depended on broader looms normally operated by two. Both John Amyot the younger of Long Melford and John Risby of Lavenham owned their own ?brodelomys?. As whole cloths began to dominate the Suffolk market, the clothiers of Hadleigh and its satellites may have been reluctant to abandon practices, skills and technology that had served them so well in the past.  Perhaps at the end of the 1460s they finally conceded to new fangled ways.?
