    Is Walter Cromwell. 1568. To 1632 a descendant of Thomas Cromwell. If so I’m a direct descendant.

      I’m not sure, sorry! Thomas Cromwell had a son, Gregory, who had children, but there were other branches of the family too.

    Walter Cromwell 1568 married Annis 1570 on a branch of Thomas Cromwell family tree.
    Was always told we were descendent but I’m now doubting it. So sad

    Walter Cromwell born abt. 1463 is the father of Thomas Cromwell as far as I can see, Walter also had a daughter Catherine who is my 12th great grandmother.
    I think Walter died in 1510
