  FMG & BEB1841 disagree on the wives of this George and the next 2 generations. FMG shows this George's wife as a daughter of Holloway of Walton, the next George's wife as Katherine Hopton and does not name the 1st Bart's wife. We follow BEB1841 which notes that "some accounts make (the daughter of Holloway of Walton) wife to (this George)".
