Siddons reports that much of the following came froma pedigree drawn up in 1606 by Thomas Jones of Fountain Gate, Tregaron "a well-known genealogist and compiler of heraldic pedigree rolls". However, there appear to be too many generations in it.

  (B) Henry Parker
  ## Siddons reports that Jones's pedigree shows this Henry as the husband of Ales, dau/heir of Robert Lovell, Lord Morley, and father by her of Henry Parker, Lord Morley (who was born by 1486). Siddons notes that this is contradicted by TCP whiich identifies Ales's husband and progenitor of the later Lords Morley as Sir William Parker ("whose origins are unknown"). Note that the pedigree also shows this Henry's elder brother William as married to a daughter of Lord Morley. It is perhaps just possible that it was William who was the father of Henry, Lord Morley, with the above John of Monmouthshire being a younger brother of that Henry. However, that is mere speculation and, as indicated in the note at the top of the page, at least some of the above pedigree is questionable not least because there are too many generations in it.
