    In John Kirton?s second will, written 16 Nov., 1529 ? "I will that Jasper Leeke, my wyfes sonne have my tenement in Harborowe (sic. Market Harborough) in the countie of Leicestr' called the Swan And also all my londes and tenements in Halstede in the Countie of Essex called Pychard And also all suche londes and tenements as I purchased of Thomas Combysley in Edelmeton in the Countie of Middlesex To haue and to holde..........unto the said Jasper and to his heirs foreuer." "And to this my present testament & last will I ordeyn and make myn executours Jasper Leek and William Kyrketon my two sonnes........

    It is evident from all your sources that she was the eldest daughter of Jasper Ruskyn (Roskyn, Ruskan, etc.), and his evident wife Katherine (E 150/1115 Part X/5), and the British History Online entry was also correct.
    The error appears to lie only in "Middlesex Pedigrees", page 13, where Jasper is shown as the brother of Anne, Margaret and Catherine, who were in fact all his daughters.
    On the question of which of John Kirton's two wives was the first wife, I would refer back to the Harleian Manuscript 1551, fo. 73, (actually pages 73 & 74) which shows an identical arrangement to that shown in "Middlesex Pedigrees" pages 106 & 107, with "Margarett . d. of Robert White of South Warnborough in
    Com. Southton. (sic. Southampton; i.e. Hampshire) 1 wife." with children:
    1) William Kirton = Elizabeth d. of John Leek of Wyer Hall in Edmonton.
    2) Elizabeth ux. .... Wyburn
    3) Stephen Kirton of London Alderman & of Edmonton = Margarett d. of William Offley of Chester
    4) Margarett (1) ux. Jesper Leek brother of Elizabeth
    5) Agnes 1 m. to ........Pleasance of London, Ale brewer 2 to John Mountney.
    To the left of John Kirton on the MS is shown "Ann d. & coheire of Jesper Ruskan of Melton Mowbray in Com. Lester (sic) & widow of John Leek of Edmonton on Com. Midlesex. (sic) 2 wife."
