Wondering if this has been addressed here before.
Wikipedia states Maria de Salinas, Lady Willoughby of Eresby (d.1539)
[ancestral aunt by marriage to those of us descending from her
sister-in-law, Margaret (Willoughby), Lady Tyrrell) was of Jewish
"Maria was the daughter of Martin de Salinas (d. 1503), and Josepha
Gonzaez de Salas, who were employees of the royal household in Castile.
The family were formerly Jewish, but had become converso."
Retha Warnicke in _ODNB_ says:
"Willoughby [née de Salinas], Maria, Lady Willoughby de Eresby (d.
1539), noblewoman and courtier, was the daughter of Martin de Salinas
and Josepha Gonzales de Salas, who were probably related of the
Castilian royal family."
