    Following his father's example Sir Thomas left Hengrave to his widow, Elizabeth for life in 1602. Margaret, their elder daughter and her husband died in the lifetime of Elizabeth Kytson and Hengrave reverted to Mary, wife of Thomas, lord Darcy of Chich.

    This marriage was unhappy one, as the Earl was morose and his unreasonable jealously led to a separation. They had one son and four daughters; the son died at an early age and fine mural monument was erected to his memory in the church.

    It was on Penelope, the third daughter that her mother, in 1643, settled Hengrave and her Suffolk property.
