Ormerod mentions only Jane, showing her as mother of his children, and names Richard "Richard Maria". It is possible that Ormerod (or his printer) showed the name Maria in the wrong place.

  BIFR1976, which follows the line of Gilbert, shows their sons in the order Gilbert, John then William. BP1934, which follows the line of William, identifies him as 3rd son with Gilbert named as the eldest son. Provisionally, we follow the order given by Ormerod (who follows the line of William) because Ormerod provides the other children with their dates.

  Ormerod shows that Charles also married Sarah, dau of John Cole, archdeacon of St. Alban's. BP1934 identifies his 2nd wife as ...
  m2. Sarah (widow of John Cole, archdeacon of St. Alban's)

  i. Sir William Domvile of Dublin & Leighlinstown (b 1609, bur 14.07.1689, Attorney General for Ireland)
  Ormerod reports that Sir William was ancestor of Sir William of Laughlinstown, Bart, ("whose son William died s.p. in 1763") and of Sir Compton, Bart (dsp 1768). This is slightly confusing as he was father of the first (who was never created a baronet) and grandfather of the second. TCB (vol 4, Domvile) provides some support for the following.
