  m. Edith Latimer (dau of Sir Nicholas Latimer of Duntish, widow of John Green)
  BE1883 reports that Sir John was succeeded by his eldest son William who dsp and was succeeded by his brother John. TCP (Mordaunt) notes that this had been thought to be true but the relevant source was found to be a forgery.
  ((i)) Sir John Mordaunt of Turvey, Sheriff of Bedford and Buckinghamshire, 1st Lord (b by 1485, d 18.08.1562)

  ((ii)) John Mordaunt (dsp) probably of this generation
  m. Anne Vere (dau of Sir Henry Vere of Drayton & Adington)

BE1883 & Visitation (Essex) show Joan a generation earlier but Visitation (Bedfordshire) appears to be right in showing her as daughter of Sir John.
  m. Giles Strangwayes of Melbury/Hyndeforde
  ((B)) William Mordaunt of Hempsted or Hempstead
  William is shown by Visitation as son rather than brother of Sir John. We follow BP1934 & BE1883 in showing him as of this generation.
