Elizabeth Light daughter of Walter Light of Radway Grange married Robert Washington.Hanging in the hall of Sulgrave Manor is an armorial shield with the Washington arms on left and the LYTE arms on the right.At that level of society imposters would easily have been found out.Walter Light was one of two sons of Christopher Light/Lyght/Lite(all three spellings are in his will of 1546)who lived at Horley Manor.The family traces back to 1268 at the ancestral home in Lytescary in Somerset.It is now a National Trust property.I would be delighted to discuss the Lyte/Light family history in England with anyone who has either queries or can add to my research.
