249. William FORTESCUE of Cookhill30 was born in 1603. He died in 1649. William succeeded to the manor at Wheatley. He was a "Popish
recusant" and so the manor was sequestered. The text says he married
Joane, daughter of Thomas Wilde of Glaseley, Shropshire. There is no
record of descendants of William's sons or his brothers.
