  BEB1841 starts with the following Robert of Killamarch but mentions in a note that "Of the same family was Sir William Hewet, Lord Mayor of London, 1559, but whether brother to this Robert is not certain". FMG does not mention Robert. We provisionally and somewhat arbitrarily show him as a cousin of Sir William (and Thomas). This should be viewed with caution.
