  m. John Rusby of Trumflete
  iii. Theodosia Adwick
  m. (1669) Robert Seaton of Blythe then Barnby Don
  Theodosia is connected to her apparent parents by dotted instead of solid line which indicates some uncertainty. As the connection does appear to be correct, that uncertainty was probably because FMG (p1267) suggests that Robert d 1672 and that she may have later married _ Morehouse whereas FMG (p1292) identifies Robert as of Barnby Don in 1672 but that he died 1716 having had several children by her. It appears that, between p1267 & p 1292, Hunter changed his interpretation of a reference to 1672.
