  4.   While it is possible that Robert Fuller was the son of John Fuller and Ann Collinge, I have not yet seen any evidence to support this. See talk page for link to explanation indicating that the timing does not work for that couple to be Robert's parents.
  5.   In a 2-page article in NEHGR; Vol 55, pas 192 & 410 there is a baptismal listing from 'the Parish Registers of Redenhall with Harleston & Wortwell.....1564__Valentine ffuller, son of Robert ffuller, 18 ffeb.'
