  BLG1952 (Arden) names only Thomas's probable son Robert and then, without naming his wife, names his daughter Mary and her husband, describing Mary as his co-heir. The remainder of his family is as reported in a web site on the Webb family. It should be noted that a contributor (JT, 25.02.07) has kindly warned us that the identification of Robert's (first) wife is "a very substantial claim" which has eluded others.
