Visitation (1566) starts with a _ Scott of Rotheram, father of Thomas Scott alias Rotheram, the Archbishop, and his brother Sir John Rotheram. 'Memorials of the Family of Scott, of Scot's Hall ...', the Main Source used for Scott05, includes a 'Thomas Scot of Rotherham, Archbishop of York, Chancellor' as younger brother of Sir William Scot of Scot's Hall but does not mention any younger brother called John. Various web sites note that he was sometimes called Thomas Scot. We provisionally follow Wikipedia in showing the following parentage & details for the Archbishop.
