  Visitation (Cheshire, 1580, Arderne of Aldford) starts with this John, showing him as having married twice, one wife being 'Ellin' (whose identity is given by the balcro website). It is not clear which wife was mother of which child but, as the first marriage was dissolved early, it is presumed that it was not consummated.

@@ We are concerned about possible confusion between the following Charles of Timplerley and the Charles shown above (who m. Elizabeth Radclyffe). Some web sites show the husband of Cicely de Bredbury as John rather than Peter, shown as father of the above Charles of Timplerley, whilst there also seems confusion regarding the Margery or Blanche who married William Stanley of Hooton. We hope to investigate these matters further in due course.
