    Notes 
    • ”Christian Percival, married about 1570 (as his 2nd wife) Richard Lowle, Gent., of Portbury, Somerset, son and heir of John Lowle, of Portbury, Somerset, by Apolyn, daughter of Edmund Leversedge. They had three sons, Thomas, Richard, and Percival, and one daughter, Margaret. Richard married (1st) Joan ______ (buried at Portbury, Somerset 4 Nov. 1568), by which marriage he had two sons, Andrew and Richard. Administration on the estate of Richard Lowle, Gent., was granted June 1577 to his widow, Christian. Her subsequent history is unknown.”

      From "The Royal Ancestry of Percival Lowell", by Brandon Fradd and Douglas Richardson. Appeared in the October 2003 issue of New England Historical and Genealogical Register:
      "Combining the information from the baptisms, the administration of Richard Lowle's estate, and the 1591 visitation, we conclude that Richard Lowle's second wife was Christian Percival and that Percival Lowle was named for his mother's family, a common practice. We can feel reasonably confident of the visitation information as it comes from the visitation of Somerset taken in 1591, when Percival Lowle was about twenty years old. His father's first cousin, John Lowle (son and heir of Roger Lowle), born about 1537, living in 1591, gave the information for the pedigree, and he would have known personally his cousin Richard and Richard's son, Percival Lowle."

      Descendant of King Edward I of England. [1]
