  BEB1841 reports that Sir John left 3 daughters, his co-heirs, by his wife Joan Hexstall without mentioning any previous marriage. Visitation shows this first marriage but shows a wavy connection to the following Thomas, adding "filius nothus ut opinor". HoP ("William Bromley") identifies William's father, the following Thomas, as an illegitimate son of Sir John so perhaps Thomas was born before his parents were married.
