BP1934 reports Thomas's 3 marriages, identifying them as Joan Wadham then Elizabeth _ then Isabella Courtenay, but gives no indication which wife was mother of William or Baldwin. Visitation shows only one wife, "Johanna f. Walham", showing her as mother of both William and Baldwin. The Mallet site names the wives Joan Wadham then Isabella Courtenay then Elizabeth. We follow that site which also names the daughters.
