Sibella/Sybilla/Sybil Lewknor

Sources are conflicting about the parentage of Sibella Lewknor, wife of Sir William Scott of Scott's Hall, Kent. She left a will dated 4 August 1628 (Tankyn I, 1). The abstract mentioned that she wanted to be buried at the monastery of White Friars Observants in Canterbury. I do know from Vicary Gibbs' publication, "The Complete Peerage," (p. 309, footnotes) under the entry of Atholl, that Johanna Halsham, wife of a Sir John Lewknor, was not the mother of Sibella because Johanna d.s.p. and the next heir was Sir Henry Roos, grandson of her grandfather John Halsham. Other sources state that Sir Thomas Lewknor, brother of Sir John, was the father of Sibella. His wife was said to be a Phillippa Dalyngrugge or Dalyngrigge. However, the information from the Society of Genealogists in London only show Sir Thomas' children as Sir Roger, Sir John, Nicholas, Walter, Elizabeth, Jane, Joane, and Anne. No Sybil. A visitation book for Sussex by William Berry named Sir Thomas' children as Thomas, Edward, Walter and Nicholas - no other children or daughters. Sir John and brother Sir Thomas Lewknor were said to be of Goring and West Dean, Sussex, and Sir John was said to have also lived at Acrisplace, Kent. Would like to have the Lewknor parentage straightened out and proven for Sybilla.
