Elene Pownall (née Fitton; 1510 – 1560) was the 16th great-grandmother of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the Taylor family line. Little is known of Elene’s life except for that she was the wife of Humphrey Pownall of Morley (1496 – 1574) and that she gave birth to at least one son named Ralph in 1536.
Elene’s named is very similar to that of her husband Humphrey’s mother who was named Elena Fitton. This has raised questions as to whether Elene was a cousin of Humphrey’s from the Fitton family. Elene is recorded as having died at the age of fifty, although her place of death is yet to be disclosed.
In Cometanic ancestry, Elene is categorised as part of the 18th generation retrograde, classifying her as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
