Remarks


Career:
Francis Holford was the son of John Holford one of the sons of Robert Holford and his wife, Margery.  John was probably the oldest of Robert and Margery’s children.

The family seem to have been at loggerheads about their landholdings and Margery’s will and during her lifetime she expressed concern that ‘hyr sonnes shuld the one kyll the other abowt yt’.
