Katherine (died 1465), daughter of Sir William de Moleyns. [Burke's Peerage]
Catherine Moleyns, d. 3 Nov 1465, daughter of Sir William Moleyns of Stoke Poges, co. Buckingham. [Magna Charta Sureties]
The Complete Peerage states that Catherine's father is the William Moleyns who died in 1425 (married to Margery). Yet Leo van de Pas, citing "Genealogisches Handbuch des Adels, Fuertliche Haeuser 1964, p. 500", has Katherine's father as the William who died in 1429, being the son of the William who died in 1425. Ancestral Roots, Magna Charta Sureties, and Burke's Peerage are ambiguous on the subject, merely stating that she is daughter of William Moleyns. Still another source, Gerald Paget's book on ancestors of Prince Charles, as well as a suggestion in CP IX:41 note "n", indicates that Margery, wife of William senior, was Margery Whalesborough (this is the way that I originally had my line). Catherine's birth date would allow her to be daughter of either, though, if daughter of William senior, she would have been 20 years younger than her brother William junior.
It doesn't seem likely that both Margery and Anne were daughters of John Whalesborough, since William junior would be marrying his mother's sister. Anne, who was heir of John Whalesborough, seems to have definite proof of being wife of William junior, therefore putting doubt as to William senior marrying Margery Whalesborough. The suggestion of a Whalesborough family background in Catherine's heritage seems to tilt in favour of her parents being William & Anne Whalesborough.
