  Visitation (Gloucestershire) shows 2 sisters of Sir James & Robert (shown above as of a later generation): Elizabeth, married to Thomas Morgan of Arleston (sb Arkeston), and Anne, married to Henry Cary, Lord Hunsdon. TCP (Hunsdon) refers to that Visitation but shows the wife of Henry, 1st Lord Hunsdon, as Ann, dau of Sir Thomas Morgan of Arkeston by Anne, dau of Sir Robert Whitney of Whitney by Sibell Baskerville. Ruth Richardson (in her book on Blanche Parry, see Parry4) reports that it was the undermentioned Elizabeth, dau of James & Blanche Milborne, who was mother of the wife of Henry Carey, 1st Lord Hunsdon. Provisionally, we follow that suggestion though we would not be surprised if in fact the mother of Lady Hunsdon was a generation later (though we would be a little surprised if she was later than that).
