  ## Many respected sources show Elizabeth as m. Edward Finch, later Finch-Hatton, and her sister Ann as m1. Sir Brook Bridges, Bart, m2. Charles Feilding. However, 'Genealogists' Magazine' (March 2018, Volume 32 number 9, p356+) provides an article entitled 'The wrong husbands and a succession of surnames", by Ronald Dunning, that appears to prove that the names had been transposed. We presume that the baptism dates shown here remain the right way round.
