  Thanks to a contributor (CV, 09.06.10) for drawing our attention to Archaeologica Cantiana which reports that Edward dsp but adds a note that Philipot suggests that he had a dau/heir who married _ Hide. Visitation (Wiltshire, 1623, Hyde) identifies the wife of Lawrence Hyde of Gussage St. Michaell & Westhatch as Anne, widow of Matthew Colthurst, dau of Nicholas Sibell of Chimbhams. This leaves us uncertain on how that Anne fits into this family. Provisionally we follow Philipot's suggestion and place her here. However, this is speculative.
