    A Thomas Chytes was bapt Nov 1639†St Botolph Without Aldgate, London, son of John C and Margaret. If this was our man, it would make him young (35) when he died, and also he could not be the one who married Margaret Lawrence in 1626.

    OWNERS AND OCCUPIERS OF THE LATE 17th AND 18th CENTURIES.
    Sir William Bucknall, the son of a Derbyshire husbandman, had sought and found his fortune in London, part of which was undoubtedly his marriage to Sarah Chitt. He was a member of the Salters Company and the Brewers Company in turn, becoming Master of the latter at the age of 41 in 1670, when he was knighted. He accumulated business interests, and from time to time the farm of various government revenues those of Northumberland and Durham. Northern Ireland, the National Customs, the London Excise Duty (this with a consortium) and became MP for Liverpool in 1670. He also made loans to King Charles II. His principal country estate lay at Oxhey Place in Hertfordshire, acquired 1 668 where his family later intermarried with the Grimstons of Gorhambury.
    He also bought the manorial rights in the Manor of the Moor in 1672 and of Wiggenhall in 1675. His town residence was at Queenhithe. He is unlikely to have stayed at Headstone, which his mother-in-law owned. Ownership stayed with the Bucknall family until 1854.
