  Visitation, which follows the Elmsall line, ends its coverage of the Wentworth Hoodhouse line with William (son of William by Joyce Tynsloe, names Isabel by BE1883) who married a daughter of Sir Thomas Reresby and had a son called Thomas who continued the line. This appears to miss out this and the next generation who are reported by BE1883.
