  7. [S1145] Walter K. Watkins, "Sheafe Family of Guilford", 213–214, Joane was the "widow of ___ Downs of Challock." Jacobus (TAG XV) cites Canterbury records "that a license was issued, 15 Aug. 1599, to Edmond Sheafe of Woodchurch, yeoman, and Jane Downe of Challock, widow. At Woodchurch, John son of Edmond Sheafe was baptised 24 Aug. 1600." But, "It is certain that the widow Jane Downe whe married Sheafe in 1599 was not Joan (Jordan) Kitchell, whese Kitchell husband did not die until 1602."

  9. [S1147] Donald Lines Jacobus, "Kitchell, Sheafe and Ruck Connections", p. 73: "A more significant record is the marriage at All Hallows, Bread Street, London, on 17 Oct. 1610 of one Mr Edmonde Sheafe of Canterbury, gent., to Joane Lake of Shoram, Wydowe, in the same county. The date is exactly suitable for the marriage of our Edmund Sheafe to Joan (Jordan) Kitchell, who as already indicated, probably married a second time and had one son after the death ef John Kitchell in 1602. If this is the marriage of our Edmund Sheafe, as it well may be, Joan ’s second husband was named Lake. At Hayes, Kent, Thomas son of Richard Lake was baptised 13 Mar. 1607/8. This may refer to the son and second husband of Joan (Jordan Kitchell who lived in Hayes at least until her first husband's death."
