    Notes 
    • Walter Cromwell married in 1474 the daughter of Glossop of Wirksworth, Derbyshire; in 1472 he claimed and was admitted to 30 acres of land at Putney; in 1499, Archbishop Morton, Lord of Wimbledon Manor, gave him 90 acres of land in Putney as a solatium for the property taken from his father by the Bourchier Yorkists. He died in 1516, leaving among other children, Katherine Cromwell.

      Tim Powys-Lybbe writing in an earlier RootsWeb Forum, states: " ... the business of Walter Cromwell alias Smyth seems to be a change of name, possibly because Walter got into some trouble and ended his life on the bottle. Walter was, as far as can be established a Cromwell by birth and came from a family who lived in Norwell, Notts; his grandfather was granted a fulling mill (either Wandsworth or Wimbledon) in 1452 by Archbishop Kempe. All this can be found in the British Dictionary of National Biography entry for Thomas Cromwell, earl of Essex. The next question is how Walter chose the name Smyth. From some papers I found, and partly photocopied, in the London Society of Genealogy, this was the name of his mother, Joan Smyth and of his grandmother, Margaret Smyth who was the aunt of Joan. And Walter's aunt Margaret Cromwell married William Smyth , father of Joan and brother of Margaret Smyth.
