Notes

Webb could refer to a sheet of lead (OED web 10a) rather than a tapestry or piece of material.

Wendover Lowndes' wife was Susanna, daughter of Peter and Martha Fyge, baptised 17 March 1638/9. They were married on 10 November 1657. She was buried at Winslow 10 October 1667. Wendover, the eldest child, was born 25 November 1658, baptised 27 November. See: Fyge family.

Wendover junior was resident in London in 1686 in the parish of St Margaret Westminster, when he transferred to William Lowndes a bond for £20 (with £40 penalty for non-payment) which he held from John Huett of Winslow (British Library, Add. ms. 37069 f.177).
