      "Sir Robert Poyntz married Margaret illegitimate daughter of Sir Anthony Wydville, Baron Scales, jure uxoris and Earl Rivers, beheaded at Pontefract, 25th June 1483. Her mother was Gwentlian daughter of Sir William Stradling and Isabella his wife. On the occasion of this marriage her father settled upon his daughter 800 marks, 200 whereof were to be paid on the sealing of the deed on certain days appointed. He also settled upon her lands to the yearly value of one hundred marks. Nevertheless there is no evidence whatever of a marriage having taken place between the parties. There is an old letter in the possession of the present Mr. Stradling of Clevedon Court, co. Som., from Sir Nicholas Poyntz of Tockington, co. Glouc, to the Eight Worshipful Sir Edward Stradling, Knt., dated at Tockington Lodge 13th June 1584, asking Sir Edward Stradling to furnish him with proofs of the legitimacy of Margaret Rivers, who married my 'Great Grand fauther, from whom I descende, knowing that you can therein certifye me the troeth, because she was a daughter to your ancestor.' It is also stated that Wentlian was the wife of Anthony Widville Earl Eivers. Their daughter Margaret married Sir Robert Poyntz. Earl Rivers made his will in Pontefract Castle just before his execution, whereof he appointed Sir Robert Poyntz one of his executors."
