Here we come to the end of the line, as the last male descendant of Walter Beauchamp is listed as John Beauchamp who "dyed in his fathers life". This section has a large number of later annotations, presumably as these are all relevant to sorting out the family affairs. The very last annotation refers to the death of Robert Willoughby, the husband of Elizabeth, the eldest of the sisters of this last generation of Beauchamps, on the 10th November in the 13th year of Henry VIII (1521).
