Notes: She married William Cheney (eb1538-a will proves that William died in 1608) William was a descendant of the Cheney's of Shurland located at Fenn Ditton.

This marriage rejoined the two branches of the family for the second time-the first being the 1268 marriage of Sir Alexander Cheney (eb1255) and Agnes De Saye (eb1250) in 1268. Both branches of the family had lost extensive wealth and property shortly before the marriage of Frances and William Cheney. AFT this the family lived in less exalted social circles.
