    Notes 
    • lists names as “Sir James de Percival” and wife “Joan Keene”. States that both James and Joan were born in Somerset County, England and that James was a Knight of the Bath in 1501.

      “This said Sir James Perceval (first of that name), who was born in 1468, and did homage upon the 28th of November following his father’s decease, being then thirty years of age. In 1501, upon the marriage of Arthur, Prince of Wales, to the Princess Catherine of Arragon, he was returned as one of those proper to be made a Knight of the Bath upon that great solemnity. In 1524, after a long dispute at law, he recovered from the Lady Elizabeth, widow of Richrd, son of Sir John Newton, the presentation of the church of Exford, a great living, dependant upon his manor of Eastbury, which had been usurped, for above a hundred years successively, by Sir Richard Chedder, Knt.; Talbot, Viscount Lisle; and Sir John Newton, Knight; whihich pleading is a very remarkable record, setting forth no less than nine generations of this family in direct succession (besides collaterals), from the reign of King Henry III, to the year we have mentioned, 1524, and establishing thereby such precision in the accounts of this family, as can be found in few others at this day. He was a man of great magnificence and expense, and lived to a great age, dying at eighty-two years old, in 1550, and leaving by Joan his wife, daughter of John Ken, of Ken, in the county of Somerset, Esq. one son, Edmund.”««s59»», ««s75»» [1, 2]
