Note: N12992 “MARY GAINSFORD (1498-February 12, 1572) Mary Gainsford was the daughter of Sir John Gainsford of Crowhurst, Surrey (1467-October 28, 1540) and his second of six wives, Anne Hawte (1473-1508). She married first Sir William Courtenay of Powderham, Devon (d. November 24, 1535) by whom she was the mother of Gertrude (1521-April 30, 1566), Philip, John, Katherine, Elizabeth, James, and Thomas. Her second husband, to whom she was married by 1537, was Sir Anthony Kingston (d. April 14, 1556). They had no children and were estranged by 1552. Kingston openly kept a mistress while Mary resided at Cudleigh, Devon. Some sources say she appears to have died before Kingston was arrested and charged with treason for his part in the Stafford Plot, but one online genealogy gives the 1572 date of death. Kingston died at Cirenchester en route to his trial.”
