  C. son
  BEB1844 reports that there was another son, John (identified as ancestor of the Barringtons of Cullinagh, Ireland) who was alive in 1558, but this was queried by a contributor (TPL, 31.05.04) who pointed out that his parents were not married until 1559. TPL kindly drew our attention to his site which was then used as the source for 'Barrington01'. That site reports that the 2nd son of Sir Thomas by Winifred Pole was called Henry.
  D. Catherine Barrington
