BE1883 is supported by BEB1841 ('Gostwick') in naming the son of this generation who married Frances Gostwick as Francis. However, Visitation (Bedfordshire, 1634, 'Gostwick') supports 'History and Antiquities of the County of Leicester' (John NichoÏs, vol 2, part 2, 1798, 'Pedigree of Mordaunt of Medbourne', p694*) in naming him James. Nichols identifies his son & grandchildren.
