James Harrington (Dean of York)
1. Alexander Harington of Stepney, Middlesex (d 1539)
  A. Sir John Harington of Stepney (d 01.07.1582)
  MGH (NS1, vol 3 (1880), p17+ & vol 4 (1884), p191) identifies John's 1st wife as ...
  m1. Ethelred (Audrey) Malte (natural dau of King Henry VII, ward of John Malte (Mawlte) of London & Kelson)
  i. Hester (Esther) Harington (a 1568, d unm?)

m. Mary Rogers (dau of Sir George Rogers of Cannington)
  a. John Harrington of Kelveston (Kelston) (b c1589, d before 03.07.1654, MP)
  The following is supported by MGH (NS1, vol 4 (1884), 'Harington of Bitton ...', p3+) though, for the eldest son John, it does no more than identify him as ancestor of the Haringtons of Corston & Kelston. Unfortunately, our downloaded copy of that volume omits pp192-193 which is shown by p191 to cover this line.

(1) John Harrington of Kelveston (Harington of Kelston) (b 1627, bur 16.04.1700, MP, 2nd son)
  Visitation reports that John married Alice Coward and was licensed to marry Eleanor Poslet of Bath, 31.07.1678. 'History of the Deanery of Tring' (Sir John Maclean, vol 3 (1879), 'Pedigree of Lercedekne', p260), which supports the above, suggest that before he married Alice Coward he married and had issue by ...
  m1. (07.11.1654) Mary Specott (dau of Peter Specott of Thornbury)

  m. (1711) Lawson Hudleston (b 1678, d 1743, Archdeacon of Bath, Canon of Wells)
  The following Benjamin, who is not mentioned by Visitation, is identified as son of John Harington by Alice, his 3rd wife (sic), who died 1675. We presume that Benjamin fits here.
