  The following is supported by Maddison's Lincolnshire Pedigrees (1906, 'Southcote of Blyborough' & 'Southcote (alias Parker) of Blyborough' ) although he does not confirm that George was his son by (Alice) Cole. Vivian identifies Sir George's 2nd wife only as Sarah (showing her as mother of Sarah) and shows that he was father of Thomas by a 3rd wife (Anna Cary), father of the 1st Bart by an unnamed wife. Maddison shows Anna Cary as wife rather than mother of Thomas which is supported by TCB (vol 3, 'Southcote or Southcott of Bliborough, p239).
