Joan’s father Walter Roberts had three wives over a period of nearly sixty years: Margaret Penn, Isabel Culpepper, and Alice Naylor. We review the ancestry of Walter Roberts and his three wives and present evidence concerning the chronology of Walter’s marriages and the identification of Joan’s mother.
  2. [S301] Adrian Benjamin Burke, John Blythe Dobson and Janet Chevalley Wolfe, "The Exhurst Ancestry of the Stoughton Siblings", The Mayne lawsuit and Exhurst deeds identify Richard Exhurst’s second wife Joan Roberts as the mother of Mary (Exhurst) Stoughton.[53] Walter Roberts’ 1522 will and the 1548–49 Stoughton-Monins Common Pleas court documents identify Joan as the daughter of Walter Roberts, Esquire, of Cranbrook, Kent.[54] Together these sources identify Walter Roberts as the maternal grandfather of Mary (Exhurst) Stoughton.
    Walter Roberts was a man of some prominence in his time in Kent. The will of Walter’s father John indicates that Walter was born after 1436,[55] and the 1592 and 1629 Roberts pedigrees state that he was above eighty years of age when he wrote his will early in 1522,[56] implying that he was born by 1442.

We note, however, that while the 1592 and 1629 Roberts pedigrees both explicitly state that Joan was the daughter of Margaret Penn, other apparent errors in these pedigrees suggest that the compiler was not fully informed about the relationships in this generation.[135]"
