(1) TCB (vol ii, Webb of Odstock) reports that the Mary who married Richard Draycote and then Sir John Webb was daughter of William Blomer of Hatherop by Frances Browne. However, both King's Staffordshire Pedigrees 1912 (Draycote) and BLG1952 (Webb formerly of Odstock) name her father John, the latter identifying her as his only daughter.
(2) Visitation (Glos., Blomer) mentions this John in brackets, as though he was missed out from some records, but (considering the dates) it is presumed that this is the John of Hatherop who married Frances Browne.
(3) TCB (vol ii, Webb of Odstock) reports that Mary's first marriage was without issue but the Draycote sources show children. However, the estate passed into the Webb family rather than the Draycote family which indicates either that a family arrangement was made to bypass the traditional inheritance route or that TCB and/or the Draycote sources and/or we have confused the undermentioned Mary with another Mary.
