  • 5 Margaret Bell, Lady Le Strange born about 1560 in probably Norfolk, died 1591. Married 'Sir (Knight) Nicholas Le Strange who succeeded his brother Thomas in 1578. He was admitted to Peterhouse in 1580, and married two years later. After Margaret's early death he married (2) Anne, daughter of Sir William Paston, and (3) Lady Ann Chaworth'.
  • Margaret had five children; the most notable of this line was her grandson Sir Roger Le Strange, a Royalist who spend a short refuge time in Holland. He returned and remained in England where he produced many witty writings some of which are exlant; toyed with and outsmarted both the Puritans and Sir Oliver Cromwell; but eventually served three years in Newgate prison; excaped, and helped start a new Royalist movement that proved successful by 1660 with the crowning of Charles II. He, along with his father and brothers were avid Cavaliers, and he may have had contact with his Bell cousins in Deptford and Tenterden, Kent, during the late 1640's where he was taking refuge. A good detail account of Royalist decline and subsequent harsh treatment by the Puritans is described in his writings.
