  TCB both reports that the 3rd Bart dspm and suggests that he had a son, this Edmund, who succeeded to the baronetcy but died soon afterwards. BEB1841 does not mention Edmund at all. TCB is also confused in calling the next Bart, George, great-uncle of this Edmund whilst acknowledging that he was brother of the 2nd Bart.
