As 'Cecil' she is entered the second child on the MI. in Hollingbourne. In the will of Sir Alexander (1645) she appears as 'my neice Cicely C.'

Chester (Westminster Burials, Harl. Soc.) cites the burial in the cloisters of Westminster Abbey, November 5, 1664, of 'Cicely Culpeper;' who, as may be demonstrated by the process of elimination, can only have been this daughter of John of Feckenham. .
