|Sir John Perrot|
Sir John's son James had for a mother Sibyl Jones, who herself was an illegitimate daughter of Thomas Jones; who was in fact Sir John's stepfather having become the second husband of Sir John's mother Mary Berkeley.
Sir John's daughter Elizabeth was his daughter by Elizabeth Hatton, another illegitimate child, fathered by Sir Christopher Hatton (1540-91).
|Sir Christopher Hatton|
The affair between John Perrot and Elizabeth Hatton was a source of tension between Sir John and her father Christopher Hatton; Hatton declared Perrot his enemy due to the fact that he had seduced his daughter.
There is a record from 1589 which states the gifts of horses to several men which included; the horse colts to go to Sir John Perrot and two mares to go to Hugh Butler of Johnson. It is probably this Hugh Butler that married Elizabeth Perrot.
