  TCP reports that Richard was by the 6th Viscount's first marriage and (like BP11934) identifies his successors as brothers rather than half-brothers. However we show the 8th and 9th Viscounts as by the second marriage simply because the dates suggest that this may be likely. This has not been confirmed.
