  Nichols identifies Edmund's wife & widow as just Anne. HoP ('Edmund Morris of Loddington') identifies her as dau of Sir Alexander Campbell of Calder, MP. However, HoP does not provide an entry for such an Alexander Campbell but does, in HoP ('Pryse Campbell of Calder') mention that Pryse replaced his brother Alexander as candidate for election. That enables us to confirm which Alexander Campbell was Anne's father.
