Other versions exist for the earlier generations, which means the version set out below may not be correct.

The manor of Westerfield is said to have been granted (c.1259) to Sir John (son of Sir Nicholas & Beatrice), by Alan, feudal Lord of Acton Burnell (Salop). See "Manors of Suffolk" Vol. 2 (Copinger, 1908). The discrepancy here cannot be resolved.
