  BLGI1912 confuses the issue slightly by showing, under Thomas, Wentworth Parsons & Lawrence, later Earl of Rosse, who were in fact children of Anne Harman by Sir Lawrence Parson, Bart (sse below).
  (3) Anne Harman see Anne of generation earlier (below)

  g. Anne Harman
  m. (16.02.1742) Sir Laurence Parsons, 3rd Bart of Birr Castle (d 24.10.1749)
  We have seen the suggestion that Anne, 2nd wife of Sir Lawrence Parsons, was a generation later being dau of Wentworth Harman of Moyle & Newcastle by Lucy, dau of Audley Mervyn of Trillick. The dates make that look quite likely but provisionally, in the absence of evidence to confirm that, we follow BLGI1912 in showing her as of this generation.
