  (A) George Hayward of Bridgnorth, Salop (b by 1505, d 1557, bailiff then coroner then alderman, MP)
  HoP provides a little detail on George, his father John, and his son Rowland.
  m. Margaret Withbroke (dau of John Withbroke or Whitbrooke of Bridgnorth)
(i) Sir Rowland Hayward, Sheriff then Lord Mayor of London (b c1520, d 05.12.1593, MP)
  Visitation ends with showing Rowland as married to Johan Tillesworthe with one child, Elizabeth. HoP designates him as "of Elsinge Spital, London, King's Place, Hackney, Mdx. and Cound, Salop" and reports that he married twice (as shown) and had at least 8 children by his first wife and 2 sons + 4 daughters by his second. Various other web sites report that he had 8 children by his first wife and also 8 by his second whilst TCP (Knyvett) mentions that he had (a total of) 16 children. It seems that some web sites attribute certain of his children to his 2nd wife rather than his 1st simply because her ancestry is better recorded.

Visitation shows the 1st wife as Johan Tillesworthe, HoP as Joan Tyllesworth. TCP (Knyvett) reports that Tillesworth is often given as her family name (indeed its own first edition did so) but that Pilsworth is what is shown on Sir Rowland's tomb. Definitely of this marriage was ...
