  Visitation (Suffolk, 1561) ends with this generation but the Harleian editor identifies Richard's wives as given in the 1612 Visitation and suggests that, in a brass in Melford church, there was "a chrysom child beneath each wife [one lost]". TCB starts with the following Sir Roger and refers to a pedigree of the family in J.J. Howard's "Visitation of Suffolk" (vol i, pp207-230). We have yet to see that Visitation but presume that Sir Roger was Richard's child by one of the above-mentioned marriages.
