Lewis Roberts of London (bur 12.03.1640, Captain, born in the Isle of Anglesey)
FMG identifies Lewis's wife as just Ann (d 24.07.1665). She is identified on Griffith '(Castellior', p96), which supports the continuation, as ...

  Much of the information about Gabriel comes from this web site ('Find a Grave'). Whereas FMG identifies his wife as _ Balam, that site identifies her as ...

m3. (02.03.1727) Obadiah Hughes
2. William Roberts of London
  FMG does not mention William. That he was son of Lewis & brother of Sir Gabriel is supported by HoP ("Gabriel Roberts of Ampthill") which provides the following.
  m. (15.04.1662) Martha Dashwood (dau of Francis Dashwood of London, sister of Mayor Sir Samuel and Sir Francis, 1st Bart)
  A. Gabriel Roberts of Ampthill, Bedfordshire (b c1665, d c1744, MP, 2nd son)
  m1. (25.08.1627, sp) Elizabeth Proby (dau of Charles Proby of Fort St. George, sister of William of Fort St. George & Elton)
  m2. Mary Wenman (dau of Sir Francis Wenman of Caswell, 1st Bart, & sister of Richard, 1st Viscount of Tuam)
  HoP reports that Gabriel & Mary's son "was not John Roberts, Henry Pelham's secretary, as suggested in the DNB, but Philip, the father of Wenman Coke, ancestor of the earls of Leicester." Supported by Wikipedia ("Gabriel Roberts"), that provides the following connection.
  i. Philip Roberts (later Coke?) (Major)
  m. Anne Coke (dau of Edward Coke of Holkham & sister of Thomas Coke, Earl of Leicester)
3. Ann Roberts
  m. George Hanger of Dryfield
4. Delicia Roberts
  m. John Nelson
