  FMG shows the Catherine Collyer, who married (31.05.1736) Edmund Malone and was mother of Richard, Lord Sunderlin, as daughter of Benjamin of Buckholts (cf Ruckholts) by dau of Robert Knight (aunt to Robert, 1st Lord Luxborough). Provisionally, we presume that, despite the various similarities, that was a different Catherine & Edmund and that FMG was wrong in showing a family connection between the mother of Lord Sundelin and the Susanna shown below as m. John Lewis of Hackney.
