      I am virtually certain that Wm Ball's wife, Hannah, was not an Atherold.
      Peter Walne, "The English Ancestry of Colonel William Ball of Millenbeck,"
      (VA Mag of History & Biography, 67:399-405), pretty well demolishes that
      claim, which dates back only to the mid-18th century. I'm not sure where we could find her real name, though.

      [CM. William Ball (1615?-1680) emigrant ancestor of the Virginia family of the name, is stated in an old record, to have married, on July 2, 1638, Hannah Atherold.
      Nathaniel Atherold, of Burgh, Suffolk, living 1660, may probably have been the testator. in spite of the differences in statement. This Nathaniel Atherold of Burgh, was a son of Thomas Atherold, Barrister at Law, who in turn was a son of Thomas Atherold, who was baptized at Burgh, .Aug. 16, 1590, died May 6, 1658, and was buried there, will dated May 10, 1656.
