Robert Vesey of Hadleigh, Suffolk (clothier)
1. William Vesey of Hintlesham, Suffolk (d 04.07.1577)
  m1. ??
  m2. Joane (Jane) Cutler (dau of Robert Cutler of Ipswich, widow of John Walton of Hadleigh)
'Evidences' indicates that William may have had children by his 1st (unnamed) wife but does not name them (albeit questioning whether or not she was mother of Robert & John) whilst naming the children by Joane Cutler as Robert, John, William & Charles. Copingerdoes not mention Robert but identifies Charles & William as "the sons" of William by his 2nd wife Joane. Visitation (Metcalfe (1882), Suffolk, 1577 & 1612, 'Vesy of Hintlesham') show Joan Cutler as mother of Robert, John & William. We are left uncertain as to which wife was mother of which son but note that it seems more likely that is was Joan Cutler.
