William Lane of Thingdon, Northamptonshire mentioned by Lipscomb
m. Anne Sutton (dau of John Sutton of Sutton)
1. William Lane of Oreleberrie or Orlingbury, Northamptonshire (d 1502) the first mentioned by the Visitations
  m. Elizabeth Strickland (dau/heir of Edmund Strickland of Hoo by Joane, dau/heir of Sir John Stretley)

  B. William Lane of Oreleberrie or Orlingbury (a 1525, d 1546?)
  m. Jane Mervyn (dau of Hugh Mervyn or Mavin of Wolvey)
The 1564 Visitation shows William & Jane as parents of Sir Ralfe, John & William but gives no more on Sir Ralfe. Metcalfe's version of the 1618-9 Visitation shows the sons of William & Jane as Sir Robert, Sir Ralph, William & John. Lipscomb shows that Sir Robert as eldest son of that Sir Ralph. We follow Lipscomb on this as it is supported by VCH.
