Thanks Will Johnson! I will check them out!

The best jump-page for sources on English medieval and pre-modern ancestors is Scroll about a third of the way down the page, and England will start.

Second best is and again scroll down a bit past the famous people and you'll start seeing the general references links.

Ok my line would be Anthony Cooke who married Anne Fitzwilliam (daughter of William Fitzwilliam and Anne Hawes) Where is the best place to check the dates for these people. Do you have any books you could recommend?
Comment by Will Johnson on February 5, 2010 at 8:47pm
Anthony married Anne FitzWilliam and Beatrice married Richard Ogle

Thanks for the info update! It looks like my line would be Alice Saunders who married John Cooke.

By the way, we don't know what year Jane was born. That 1465 is a bad guess based on nothing :)

Someone has made a mistake Randall. 12 Feb 1525 was the death date of Jane, not of either of her two husbands. Her first husband was William Saunders of Banbury, co Oxford. They had a daughter Alice who married John Cooke of Gidea Hall. They are ancestral to the British royal house.

By her second husband William Cope, esq, cofferer (hair dresser) to Henry VII, she had two more children Anthony and John. Both of whom also have living descendants today.

I found information at on a Jane Spencer b.1465 Hodnel, [parish], Warwickshire, England, d. 12 Feb 1525 Canons Ashby, [parish], Northamptonshire, England. It said she was married to William Saunders b. Abt. 1461 Banbury, [parish], Oxfordshire, England, d. 12 Feb 1525. Has anyone come accross these names before?
