  m. Thomas Findern of Finderne
  Except for the descendants of Anthony, the following comes from Vivian who identifies the following George as 'of Godeby'. It is noted that Visitation (Beaumont) identifies his elder brother Richard as 'of Gaudby' and George as of Sussex whilst Visitation (Beamont) shows George as 'of Kent'.
  b. George Beaumont of Godeby/Gaudby (Leicestershire) and/or Sussex
  m. Elizabeth Leigh (dau of Nicholas Leigh of Addington by Ann, dau of Richard Carew of Beddington)
  c. Anthony Beaumont (4th son)
Vivian shows that Anthony married _ Armstrong and had issue (not named). The following comes from a web site which identifies this as the Anthony of Glenfield who was father, by Anne Armstrong, of Countess Mary & Anne. However, there appears to be some uncertainty as to Anthony's lineage so the following may not be secure.
  m. Anne Armstrong (dau of Thomas Armstrong of Corby)
  (1) Sir John Beaumont not mentioned on the web site, identified in TCP (Northampton) as brother of Countess Mary

m2. Thomazin Motton (dau of William Motton) this marriage mentioned by Visitation (Beamont)
2. Thomas Beaumont of Thringston or Thrinkston (near Coleorton, Leicestershire) (a 1495)
  Vivian does not follow this line but shows this Thomas as m. Anne, dau of Harecourt of Stanton Harecourt whereas BEB1841 (Beaumont of Grace Dieu), which starts with his son Thomas, shows that son as married to Anne Harcourt. Visitation (Beaumont) shows this Thomas as married to Anna, dau of _ Harecourt of Stanton Harecourt, and then shows his son as the husband of a dau of Robert Motton of Pickleton. Provisionally, we follow Commoners (vol 4, Beaumont of Barrow-upon-Trent) & BLG1850 (Beaumont of Barrow-upon-Trent) which show the marriages the other way around.
  m. Hawise (probably not Anne) Motton (dau of Sir Robert Motton (or Maton) of Peckleton)
  A. Thomas Beaumont of Thringston (d 1531-2)
  m. Anne Harcourt (dau of ?? Harcourt of Stanton Harcourt)
  i. John Beaumont of Gracedieu (a 1550, Master of the Rolls)
Contradicting the other sources, including Visitation (Beaumont), Visitation (Beamont) shows this John and his sister Dorothy as children of George Beaumont & Joane Pancefoote (see above).
  m1. Isabell Dutton (dau of Lawrence Dutton of Dutton)
  m2. Elizabeth Hastings (dau of Sir William Hastings)
  ii. Edward Beaumont of Barrow-upon-Trent (a 1550)
