m4. Henrietta Tenison (bpt 11.08.1714, a 1753, dau of Edward Tenison, Bishop of Ossory & nephew of Archbishop Tenison)
  There is a little confusion about how many wives Peter had and which was mother of which of this childen. MGH reports that he "desired to be bur. at Merton "where my three wives lie" " and then names 4 wives (all apparently died before he did) albeit with Henrietta identiifes as a possible rather than definite 4th wife with that marriage date being "after 1736". That raises the possibility that Henrietta was the same person as the unnamed 3rd wife even though it would be odd for that not to be suggested in MGH. Note that it looks as though 2 of the children were named with Henrietta in mind.
