[LAYF581] Edmund Layfield. Margaret "late wife of Edmund Layfield" was buried at Kirkby Lonsdale (30th March 1539). Edmund Layfield married (at Kirkby Lonsdale, 2nd July 1542) Jenet Harling. These events may not necessarily relate to the same Edmund, who could have been father and son. After a lengthy gap Edmund had the following children baptised at Kirkby Lonsdale, whose mother was not necessarily Jenet:
[LAYF591] Edward (baptised 17th June 1561), see later;
Nicholas (baptised 18th March 1562-63).
[LAYF591] Edward Layfield (born 1561) married (at Kirkby Lonsdale, 19th February 1586-87) --- [name omitted in register]. They had thirteen children baptised at Kirkby Lonsdale as follows:
Edmund (baptised 17th December 1593);
Christopher (baptised 25th February 1595-96);
John (baptised 16th January 1598-99);
Anne (baptised 25th March 1601);

Sarah (baptised 9th April 1620.

With the exception of the name John, no name is repeated. This suggests they were all children of the same Edward, though not necessarily by the wife he married in 1587.
