- [S1257] Elijah Francis Atwood, Ye Atte Wode Annuals, Part 1, page 3 - It is likely that John Hewson Atwood became keeper of the King’s Falcons, John Ownstead was Sergeant of he Queen’s Carriages, under Elizabeth…. John Hewson settled certain Sanderstead Manor lands on his youngest son Thomas, who died in 1569; Robert Atwood died in 1568. John Hewson Wood died in St. martin’s 1562, while Margaret had died in 1558. A Chancery suit includes statement that Court Roll in 1547 show Nicholas Atwood to have then been the heir of Sanderstead Manor.
Page 5 - Nicholas Atwood, or Wood, was borne before 1539, hence probably at Sanderstead Court. His brass relates that he served Queen Elizabeth after the second year of her reign. His position was undoubtedly that of Assistant Sergeant of the Queen’s Carriages, with his cousin John Ownstead as Sargeant.
