Below is an item that I found recently and would appreciate your input as to this person's kinship to other members of the Wyatt family. My guess is that he was a near relative of the Wyatt of Slindon branch of the family?
Cheers, H Hansen
On a brass now fixed to the chancel wall in Puttenham Church: "Here lieth buried the body of Francis Wyatt, gent, who married Timothie, daughter to Ninian Burrell of Cuckfield Ssx. by whom he had 2 sons Richard. A: Francis. He departed this life first day of December 1634. Timothy his beloved wife caused this memorial, S: desireth also to be here buried" ("Manning's Surrey." II., p. 20). Francis, the younger son, was of Horsted Keynes, and married Awdry, daughter of Robert Spence, of Halcombe. For Wyatt Pedigree, see "Surrey Arch. Coll.," III., p. 300. This brass was found a few years ago in a vault. Rodsell is now a farm-house, but a fine staircase and oak panelling remain to testify its former greatness.
