    • Edmund Cranmer of Sutterton, England, born in the 15th century. He is the earliest documented ancestor of Archbishop Thomas Cranmer. Thoroton in his "History of Nottinghamshire" attempts to extend this Cranmer lineage back to the reign of Edward I, by listing from an old heraldic pedigree, five generations who lived in Sutterton, before the family moved to Aslacton.

      • Hugh De Cranmer had issue by Matilda, daughter of William de Sutterton
      • Gilbert Cranmer, who had issue by Ida, daughter of Adam de Loughton
      • Hugh Cranmer, who was the elder brother of John and father of
      • Thomas Cranmer, whose son Edmund married the heiress of Aslacton.

      The above lineage however was disputed by Robert Waters, a scholarly genealogist, who wrote in 1887, that there was no evidence to prove the existence of these persons, except that the name of Hugo de Cranmere, had been found painted in the west window of the Sutterton Church.

      Edmund and his wife Isabella, were both living in 4 Henry VI (1425-6) when they purchased certain lands in Aslocton from William de Sibthorpe. [1]
