Her willl dated 2 December 1540, was proved 7 January 1540/1 (f). [Complete Peerage VII:168-9, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    [f] She directs burial at the Whitefriars, with her late husband Richard. See an article by J. C. Challenor Smith in Marshall's Genealogist (Vol. ii, PP. 388-389) giving an account of her and her husbands. She was foundress of almshouses, now at Islington, for the widows of poor clothworkers. She appears to have had some petty appointment at court, small payments being made to her from time to time. She presumably is "the Lady of Kent " who in 1538 was paid 10os. as one of the servants of the Princess Mary.
