  TCB (Darcy) observes that the 2nd Bart was "Often, erroneously, called Thomas". BE1883 reports that Thomas, 2nd Bart, was father of Thomas, 3rd Bart, father of George, 4th Bart who died "a minor", and his three sisters. However, BEB1844 shows Thomas, 2nd Bart, died unmarried and this is confirmed in TCB. We follow TCB which confirms that Frances was daughter of the 1st Bart.
