The surname Pipe-Wolferstan can be attributed to Samuel Pipe (1751-1820). He was the son of Rev. Samuel Pipe and Dorothy Wolferstan. Samuel Pipe assumed the surname Pipe-Wolferstan by Royal Licence 03 Jun 1776 after inheriting Statfold Hall from Stanford Wolferstan; his maternal grandfather.

Samuel Pipe married my great (x5) great-aunt.  Incidently there are other Pipe-Wolferstan/Jervis marriages:

Stanley Pipe-Wolferstan (1785-1867) & Elizabeth Jervis (1799-1859)
-Stanley is an 8th cousin 7 times removed whilst Elizabeth is my great (x4) great-aunt.

Stanford William Pipe-Wolferstan (1830-1863) & Blanche Jervis (1842-1924)
-Both Stanford & Blanche are a 1st cousin 5 times removed.

William John Jervis (1845-1886) & Emily Dorothea Pipe-Wolferstan (1837-1921)
-Both William & Emily are a 1st cousin 5 times removed.

My great (x8) grandmother is Mary Swynfen.  As it turns out, she too is a relative of Samuel Pipe, albeit a distant one.  Francisse Wolverstone (1612-1666) married Frances Middlemore (c1606-1676), Mary's 3rd cousin twice removed. This means Samuel Pipe is a rather distant relative of mine; to be precise, a 7th cousin 8 times removed!

I've recently had the chance to view "The Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal: The Isabel of Essex Volume, Containing the Descendants of Isabel (Plantagenet), Countess of Essex & EU" by Marquis of Ruvigny & Raineval. It was first published in 1907 and contains all the livings descendants of Edward III. I can therefore confirm that the Pipe-Wolferstan family of Statfold are descendants of Edward III.

In addition to the above, I can confirm that Samuel Pipe's maternal ancestry can be traced to Sir Henry Shirley, 2nd Baronet Shirley, and Lady Dorothy Devereaux (6th great grandparents).  Lady Dorothy's father is Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex and 9th Lord Bourchier.  His 10th great-grandmother, Lady Mary Boleyn, was a sister of Anne Boleyn.
