    page 46.

    'A Daughter, born about 1581; married about 1599, Richard French of Misterton, Somersetshire.'

    Bartlett gives the wife of Roger Warfield as the older daughter, probably because her children are mentioned first in her father's will. But her father's will mentions his oldest son after both his daughters, so this might not signify. The will, written in 1603/4, mentions 2 children of Roger Warfield and 3 of Richard French - it would appear that the daughter who married Richard French was likely the elder of the two - otherwise, she would have had to be quite young in order to have had 3 children by 1603/4.
