Robert Waterton Constable: Around 1360 he was born to John Waterton and Joan Mauley. Before 1398 Robert Waterton Constable (age 38) and Cecily Fleming were married. In 1399 Robert Waterton Constable (age 39) was appointed Constable of Pontefract Castle. In Jan 1400 he was given custody of King Richard II of England (age 31) who died shortly thereafter. On 20 Nov 1399 Robert Waterton Constable (age 39) was appointed Master of the Horse to the newly crowned Henry IV King England (age 32). In or before 1422 Robert Waterton Constable (age 62) and Margaret Clarell Lady of the Garter (age 24) were married. The difference in their ages was 37 years. On 17 Jan 1425 Robert Waterton Constable (age 65) died.

Cecily Fleming: She was born to Robert Fleming of Woodhall.

Edith Latimer: Before 1479 John Greene and she were married. Around 1450 she was born to Nicholas Latimer (age 18) and Joan Hody at Duntish. Before 1475 John Mordaunt (age 19) and Edith Latimer (age 24) were married. The date somewhat unreliable. Her first husband John Greene (age 29) is supposed to have died in 1483 which makes the date of her marriage to John Mordaunt (age 19) and the birth of her sons by him unreliable? On 01 Sep 1504 Edith Latimer (age 54) died at Turvey. She was buried at All Saints Church, Turvey.
