Memorials of the Danvers Family (of Dauntsey and Culworth): Their Ancestors: Elizabeth the second daughter of Sir John Danvers married during her father's life Sir John Abarowe or d Abarow son and heir of Sir Morrice Abarowe, Aske's pedigree of Danvers, of the ancient family of that name long seated at Dichett and Northborough in Somerset. Sir John and his wife were both alive in 1539 when Dame Ann Danvers made her will and had then a daughter Mary to whom her grandmother left 10 towards her marriage to pray for her.
