    Notes 
    • In the court rolls from 1572-1589 he is called "wheelwright" to distinguish him from his elder brother Thomas, called "Junior" and "the middle", and from their still older cousin Thomas, who is always called "senior." In the subsidy of 1566-7 he is called Thomas "the bachaler," but in that of 1575-6 he is called "the whelwrite." He also appears in the subsidies of 1596-7 and 1698-9, and was guardian (or churchwarden) in 1595. In his will he mentions land called Pal gate, given to him by the will of his father John Rowning in 1549. [3]
