  Research Notes:

Until 1581 the baptism register for Mountfield does not include either of the parents' names.

Possible father and date he was buried in Mountfield:
- Thomas, 26 Apr 1579
- Richard, 14 Oct 1587
- Thomas (the elder), 17 May 1599
- John, 13 Apr 1600
- John, 9 Apr 1610
- Richard, 24 Sep 1613
- Isaac, 29 Jul 1618
- William (the elder), 3 Feb 1623

Thomas Metterste and Ann Danyell, married in Northiam on 29 Sep 1562, are unlikely to be Ellen's parents as there are baptisms in Northiam with father Thomas from this date until 1580.

- Grace, 25 Mar 1580
- John, 19 Feb 1581; father: William; he married Elizabeth Hewarde on 24 Nov 1579, so this was probably their first child; however it may have been his second marriage
