    [Note: Vol. 96, p. 133 shows their purported son William [#132], saying "Nothing further about him has been found". A different article, Vol. 103, p. 61, shows a different marriage, more appropriate for the father's age, and shows his son dyed unmarried. See the will below which suggests the second article is correct.]
