You will find this Greenwood family on the 1620 Vis of Devon, which shows Joan's marriage to Oliver Wellington, but not much about her ancestry.
The following is from Report and Transactions of The Devonshire Association... v. 31 (1899):
. Mr. Henry Greenwood was four times mayor of the town, and must have been a man of considerable importance. He belonged to an old Somersetshire family, of which pedigrees are given in the Heralds' Visitations of Devon and Somerset. (Arms-Paly of six, argent and azure, on a bend gules three escallops or.) He died 26th April, 1619. Westcote gives the epitaph upon him and his second wife Mary, who died 17th March, 1606.
" Invida mors quamvis jungi uon amplius uno
Non sinat in thalamo, non vetat in tutnulo.
Sylva fni quondam viridis, nunc arida ; tempus
Cum viror et rires restituentur, erit."
5 Risdon, p. 272. Complete Peerage, by G. E. C.
Colonel Vivian makes his second wife to have been Agnes, widow of Harbottle. This wife survived him, and must have been a third wife. His first wife was Elizabeth, daughter of John Barret, of Barnstaple. One of his daughters, Joan, married Oliver Wellington, of London, dyer. This gentleman was, I presume, a brother of Lewis Wellington, who married Grace Woodrouffe, of Barnstaple, was Justice of Peace for Torrington in 1620, and was an ancestor of Grace Wellington, who married Mr. Philip Furse.
