Burial place error[edit]

Denzil Holles was not buried in St Margaret's Church, in Ifield, Sussex; he was buried in Westminster Abbey. His family are buried in Ifield (now part of Crawley), but not he himself.

The Holles family vault, in St Margaret's Church, Ifield, began to fill from 1662. This suggests Denzil Holles was living here at this time; but he had several manor houses in the South of England, including London. Holles's importance allowed his body the honour of the Abbey; but his family, of lesser importance, were buried in Ifield Parish Church. Peter symonds 18:31, 18 May 2007 (UTC)


According to Firth's article in the DNB (both 1904 and 1909 editions), Denzil was second, not third, son of Clare. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:13, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
