Families covered: Herne (Hyrne or Hirne) of Haveringland (Haverland or Heverland)

The coat of arms of the following family was very different from that of the Hernes of Norfolk reported on Herne1, suggesting that they knew of no connection between the families.
Nicholas Hyrne of Drayton
1. Clement Hyrne, Mayor of Norwich (d before 11.11.1596)
  m1/2. Dorothy Palmer
  m2/1. Margaret Wysse (Dau of John Wysse, relict of _ Maulby of Norwich)
Visitation identifies Clement's wife, and mother of Thomas & Christopher, as Dorothy Palmer. BHO identifies the mother of Thomas as Margaret Wysse.
