Visitation starts with Nicholas Pinchon, Sheriff of London (a 1533), showing him as father of John of Writtle (who d 1573). Waters disputes that (p860: "This cannot be true") but adds that "Nicholas undoubtedly belonged to the Writtle family" and implies that he was probably brother of the William who was father of that John.
