Notes for Sir John Gage KG
The Glos Visitation of 1623 has 4 generations of his Gage ancestors.

He was father of Sir Edward Gage of Firle, Sussex. Is this the same Sir Ed as is the father of Philippa who married Edmund Sander? Burke says that Sir Ed Gage was the ancestor of some lords Gage. CP says that the 1st baron and viscount Gage (Ireland), Thomas was summoned in 1720 and was the s. of Joseph G. of Sherborne castle, Oxon; this Joseph was the 4th s. of Sir Thomas Gage, 2nd bart, of Firle, Sussex by Mary 1st dau and co-heir of John Chamberlain of Sherborne castle; Dr J H Round says that the Gages cannot be traced back before the 15th century.

Anyhow Sir John had a younger son John who settled at Bentley, Sussex and had three wives...
