Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 1: Aston (PROPOSED CORRECTIONS)


Volume 1, pages 285, 286:
He [Sir Walter Aston, Bart, later Lord Aston of Forfar (d. 1639)] m., about 1607, Gertrude, only da. of Sir Thomas SADLEIR, of Standon, Herts, by his 2nd wife, Gertrude, da. of Robert MARKHAM, of Cotham, Notts.

John Brandon, in January 2003, provided evidence that Walter Aston had a first clandestine marriage, to one Anne Barnes, which was dissolved in 1600, Anne Barnes having been committed to the Fleet Prison [citing R. C. Bald, John Donne, A Life, pp. 132, 133 (1970)].
