Norton and his first wife Susan Neville (b. 1501, not 1500 as I have
in the descent line) had about a half dozen daughters or so. Stirnet
or Tudor Place ought to have a list of them.

Fletcher Norton, 1st Lord Grantley, is a direct male-line descendant.

I'll have to check my Visitation pedigrees of the family when I get
home late tonight. Unfortunately, the Nortons skipped the 1530
Visitation, which means we won't get a family snapshot until 1552 at

One of their Nevill of Latimer uncles left a will and mentions several
of them (I have a copy of it at home). That could provide some kind
of time parameter, but I'm afraid determining a chronology will be
difficult for them until the 1550s.

He certainly was not descended from Edward I. Monarchs prior to that,
I don't know.
