Berry starts with a Sir Walter who, by his 2nd wife (Bennett Honeywood), was father of the Robert who m. Alice Worley. We presume that this Sir Walter was the same person as (rather than, say, the father of) the last Walter mentioned by the 1574 Visitation and that his 1st wife was ...

  m. (c1615?) Priscilla Fotherby (b c1594, d 10.11.1661, dau of Charles Fothersby or Fotherby, Dean of Canterbury)
The 'KentArch' site provides various details around this generation (with notes apparently taken by different people at different times) and in one place mentions that Robert & Priscilla had 3 sons & 10 daughters and in another that they had 10 sons & 3 daughters.
  a. Sir Robert Moyle of Buckwell (b 1636-7, d 02.01/06.1661)
  m. (03.06.1654) Mary Toke (b 1640, dau of Nicholas Toke of Godington)

  (i) Moyle Breton of Kennington, last of Buckwell (b 1691-2, d 19.05.1735)
  Berry identifies Moyle's wife as Martha Whitfield (d 1766) but the 'KentArch' site identifies his wife as Mary Moyse. As Berry shows his mother Mary as d 1713 and his having a brother Robert who is shown by 'KentArch' as d 1808 aged 84 (so born in 1723-4), we presume that Berry has missed out a generation.
