Henry Cotton Bishop of Salisbury d.1615
« on: Wednesday 07 February 18 11:55 GMT (UK) »
In his Will, Bishop Henry Cotton asks to be buried in the Cathedral church of Salisbury, in the same place as his deceased wife Patience [his first wife]

Henry Cotton, the son of Sir Richard Cotton of Warblington and Bedhampton Hant's, was, as a young man rector of Havant, Hants. I have read that he married Patience c.1571

I have searched many pedigrees but cannot find any details of Patience's nee name [?]

The Cotton memorial stone is not in Salisbury Cathedral now, having been removed during some refurbishment.

                  Has anyone seen details of Patience's family name/origins ?
Watson (Worcestershire/Herefordshire/Norfolk/Yorkshire)
(Westmeath Ireland/Hull east Yorkshire)
Grey (Buildwas Abbey Shropshire)
 South Marston/Salisbury/Lincolnshire Wilts
