  Wotton identifies John (& Isabel) as progenitors of the Harpurs of Rushall in Staffordshire and reports that "the first of this family mentioned there" was the undermentioned Sir John. Visitation (Staffordshire, 1583) shows that John died 03.07.1464. Provisionally, we presume that there was (just) one intermediary generation.
