George Milner of Heslocton, Nottinghamshire
m. _ Reyner (sister of Sir William Reyner of Overton Longville)
1. George Milner of Heslocton
2 Peter Milner of Burton Grange (3rd son)
3. William Milner of Oundle & Burton Grange (d 1654, 5th son)
m. Douglas Postlethwaite (dau of Rev. Henry Postlethwaite of Armthorpe, dean of Doncaster)
  A. William Milner of Burton Grange (4th son)
  m. Alice Rimington (dau of John Rimington of Lofthouse)
  BLG1952 does not follow this line. It is our presumptuous speculation that William was the same person as the William whose line is given in FMG alongside that of Gamaliel with a note that the following "is founded on good evidence" but, with relation to the line of Gamaliel, "the question is how they are to be united". In FMG, Hunter states "I imagine that William who mar. ... Elmsall was the son of (this) William" but BLG1952 does not support that.
