(1) The following family was probably connected to the above. Thoroton appears to have confused the Thomas shown below as m1. Margaret Mollineux m2 Elizabeth Strelley with the Thomas shown here.

It claims "to be descended from Wyamarus Whalley, who accompanied William the Conqueror from Normandy, and was the standard bearer at the battle of Hastings."
