  Visitation (Shropshire, 1623, Newton of Heightley) shows the following Maria as daughter of Matilda Cholmeley but in the entry on Acton of Acton Scott, which identifies Thomas Acton's wife as "Mary da. of Sr. Peter Newton of the Councell of the Marches of Wales", the Harleian Editor has added (in italics) "by Joane Kyffyn". In BLG1866 (Walcot of Bitterley Court), Mary (dau of Sir Peter Newton of Highley) is shown as married to John Walcot and then Thomas Acton of Acton Scott. In Visitation (Shropshire, 1623, Walcot of Walcot), Mary is identified as a dau of Sir Peter Newton by an unnamed dau of Geffrey Kyffin ap ... (etc. as shown below), apparently an addition by the Harleian Editor. We therefore presume that Joane was another wife of Sir Peter (or possibly his mistress?).
