  Commoners (vol 1, 'Twemlow of Hatherton', p334+) follows the line of William of Arclyd & Hatherton (b 1666, d 1732), shown as 3rd son of George of Arclyd by Mary Lingard - 1st son was John m. Mary Poole as above; 2nd son was Thomas of Arclyd & Hatheront (b 1665, m 1686 Anne (great-granddau of William Cholmeley of Norton), had son Thomas Cholmeley who d infant) - but that appears to be a different William to the one shown by MGH. [BLG1894 does not mention a William in this generation whilst he is is presumably included by Ormerod within "Many other children, diesd without issue".] Provisionally, we omit that line but may come back to it in due course.
