|Sir William Stafford : b) 1554 Grafton England d) 1612 Grafton
England m) Ann Gryme 1593, Grafton, Northampton, England
Ann Gryme b) 1555 ? If anyone can point me to a detailed source for this marriage I would appreciate it. It seems very strange that her first marriage took place at the age of 38 years old. I have no idea of her death date. Did William above re-marry? Other sources show her having two children with the above William, one being born in 1593 the second I have no date on. It would be even more exceptional if she had her first chid at the age of 38 in the mid 1550's.
