  ii. Thomas Parker of Little Norton and Whitley (d 1552)
  Collins identifies Thomas's wife as the daughter and heir of _ Parker of his own family by which is presumed he means she was a cousin. BLG1952 reports that he had two wives, firstly Elizabeth and secondly Agnes, having issue by both. It indicates that the eldest son of the 2nd marriage was Robert (not mentioned by Collins) who, being of Little Norton, we assume to have been his heir and so elder brother of William (mentioned by Collins but not by BLG1952). From this we presume that Thomas's second wife was called Agnes Parker.
