  a. Joan Echingham (dvp)
  ii. Robert de Echingham of Echingham (dsp 1327)
  iii. Sir Simon de Echingham of Echingham
It is a presumption, albeit seemingly a reasonable one, that this Simon (the last person mentioned by TCP) was the same person as the Sir Simon who was the first mentioned in the Visitation.
  a. Sir William Echingham
  (1) Sir James Echingham
Visitation identifies Sir James's heir as William, married to Joan Thorpe, widow of Sir John Clifton, and shows them as parents of the Sir William who married Joan FitzAlan. TCP (Thorpe) reports that Joan was married first to Sir Robert Echingham and then to Sir John Clifton and that she had only one child, a daughter by Sir John. We presume that Visitation confused brothers, as follows ...
  (A) Sir Robert Echingham
  m. (sp) Joan Thorpe (dau of Sir Edmund Thorpe of Ashwell Thorpe)
  (B) Sir William Echingham
  (i) Sir William Echingham of Echingham
  m. Joan FitzAlan (dau of John FitzAlan of Arundel, Lord Maltravers)
  (a) Sir Thomas Echingham of Echingham (d 1444)
Visitation reports only 1 wife, identified only as a Knevett, but TCP (Audley) identifies Margaret as probably by Sir Thomas's 2nd wife, "Margaret, da. of John Knyvett (senior)." The name of his 1st wife was found on a web site. We presume that all children were by Margaret.
  m1. Agnes Shoyswell (dau of John de Shoyswell)
