Notes for Katherine Courterary:
Katherine Courtenay married 1 Sir St Clare Pomeroy m2 Thomas Rogers of Bradford on Avon Som,serjeant at law, m 3 Sir Wm Huddesfield. Thomas Rogers was a jumped up lawyer from nowhere and it would seem unlikely that Sir Philip Courtenay and Elizabeth Hungerford would have agreed to such a valueless first marriage. From the Librarian of Lincolns Inn the information Thomas Rogers was admitted, almost certainly in 1454, "of Bristowe ", and was a Lincolns Inner until appt serjeant at law in 1478, and died in the same year. He married 1 Cecily Bessils dau and co heir of Wm Bessils of Bradford on Avon, and had two sons William and John (later of Sutton Valence , Kent,). And 2 married Katherine widow of Sir S Pomeroy. I cannot be certain but, Cannington only comes into the picture at the dissolution of the monasteries when it was given/awarded to Thomas`s grandson Edward Rogers. The Bradford property and the Colyngbourne Valence Wilts property went to William, Thomas`s eldest son, and he (VCH Wilts) gave the reversion to his half brother George Rogers, son of Thomas and Katherine Courtenay. On the brass at Shillingford comemmorating Sir Wm Huddesfield and Katherine, three children are depicted alongside the kneeling figure of Katherine, who is a suitable three paces behind the kneeling armoured figure of Sir Wm.
Lincoln's Inn, which occupies most of the rectangle formed by High Holburn on the north, Carey Street and the Royal Courts of Justice on the south, Chancery Lane on the east and Lincoln's Inn Fields on the west, is one of the four Inns of Court of London. The Inns of Court were unincorporated bodies of lawyersdefining the requirements for a Barrister to meet the Bar - sort of like theAmerican Bar Association, and the oldest - going back to 1422, the others being Inner Temple 1501, Middle Temple 1505, and Gray's Inn 1569.
