These are the two Kent visitations that have been discussed previously
in this group with respect to Rose Knyvett - in 2006 and 2009.
Although they identify Rose as daughter of John, they don't name
John's wife or give any ancestry for him.
I won't re-hash the arguments for or against Rose's maternity now -
except to note that back in 2006 Douglas Richardson noted that "the
chronology fits well for John Knyvet, Esq., and Agnes Harcourt
to be Rose (Knyvet) Beresford's parents".
