ii. Thomas Ball of Southwood (b c1520, a 1620)
  a. John Ball of Southwood
  Vivian shows no more on this line. BP1934 (Ball) starts with the undermentioned Robert (who was born at Bampton, Devon), reporting that his family "claims descent from Nicholas Ball, of Chudleigh, whose great grandson Thomas Ball, of Southwood, was aged 100 in 1620". That does not confirm that Robert was descended from this Southwood line but we presume that he was grandson (or grand-nephew) of this John (son of the aged Thomas).
(1) ?? Ball presumed intermediary generation
  (A) Robert Ball, Mayor of Youghal, co. Cork (b 20.11.1651, d 17.01.1724)
  m. (28.09.1675) Elizabeth Vaughan (dau of Thomas Vaughan of Youghal)
  D. Nicholas Ball of the Bridge, Chudley (2nd Nicholas)
  i. John Ball of Bridgland (bur 12.03.1603-4)
  m. (31.01.1573-4) Jone Pinsent (dau of John Pinsent)
  a. Ellen (Helen) Ball (bpt 14.03.1575-8)
m. (16.12.1593) Anthony Stawell
  ii. Nicholas Ball of Chudley
  a. Egidius (Giles) Ball
  m. (27.04.1600) Nicholla Geale
  (1) Joane Ball
  Vivian (p35) shows Joane as wife of Thomas Gould of Chudleigh. Vivian ('Gould', p420) shows Thams Gould of Coombe in Staverton as husband of Joan, dau of Giles Ball of Chudleigh which looks like a clear connection - until we note that the wife of that Thomas (who d before 06.04.1571) was bur 04.03.1601-2 so she could not have been this Joan (who might have been born or baptised on that date).
