  (B) Sir Alexander Temple of St. Margaret's (Rochester), later of Longhouse Place aka Chadwell Place, then Haremere Hall (b 1583, d 1629, 4th son)
  The following comes from a report in www.thurrock-community.org.uk/historysoc/ on a lecture on Sir Alexander given by John Matthews (on 21.01.05) who has kindly advised us (19.11.06) that, although Sir Alexander is sometimes identified as 'of St. Mary's Hoo', the above description is more accurate.

  We presume that this is the John (d 1603) who is the first of the family mentioned by VCH (Warwickshire, vol 6, 'Parishes: Frankton') which provides the following.
  (i) son
  (ii) John Temple of Frankton (d 1642)
  (a) Thomas Temple of Frankton (b c1622)
  VCH suggests that the following Thomas was probably son of this Thomas rather than the same person. We are surprised at that.
