For the Worsley family, an excellent source is Walter Goodwin Davis' book
"The Ancestry of Mary Isaac" (1955), and he also treats the Leghs of
Stockwell in Surrey. The names you gave didn't ring loud bells at the
moment, but good luck. The book may come on ILL, and it was filmed by the
LDS.

Jane Legh was daughter of Sir Piers (VII) Legh (1479-4 Dec 1542) of Lyme,
Cheshire and Margaret Tyldesley of Tyldesley, Lancashire. Margaret's
father was named Nicholas, but nothing further on this. There are a
number of references to this family in Marshall under "Tildesley."

Thomas Gerard (d. 1553) of Kingsley, Cheshire and Bryn, Lancashire and
Jane had at least three children: (1) Catherine m. William Torbock of
Torbock, Lancashire (and great-grandmother to gateway immigrant Oliver
Mainwaring of New London, CT) (2) Daughter whose name I do not have m.
Robert Charnocke and (3) Thomas m. Elizabeth Port of Etwall, Derbyshire.

Hope this helps.
