Rowland Nicholetts
m. Isolde (Jhelglas?)
1. Richard Nicholetts
  m. Johan
  A. John Nicholetts (dsp)
  B. William Nicholetts of Worcestershire
  m. Elizabeth
  i. Roger Nicholetts of Worcestershire
  m. Elizabeth Sturmie
  a/b. Richard Nicholetts of The Hill (The Hull) in Eastham, Worcestershire
  Robinson starts with this Richard "son of Roger and grandson of William, all of co. Wigorn.". The above (and the information on his brother John) comes from 'The Genealogist' (vol 1, p233) wich reports on a 'Pedigree of Nicholetts of the Hill ...'. Visitation (1569) suggests that John was the eldest son and Richard the 2nd son.
  m. Alice Fitzurse (dau of Percival Fitzurse of Hall Court in Bishops Frome)
  (1) William Nicholetts of The Hill in Eastham
  m. Ann Rowdon (dau of James Rowdon of Rowdon (Rowden of Rowden))
  (A) Richard Nicholetts of The Hill, Eastham, Worcestershire (d 26.03.1620)
  m. Beatrix Baylie (d 1591, dau/coheir of William Baylie or Baylies of Hamon's Hall)
  Robinson is confusing here, showing not only Richard but also his brothers Anthony & Charles all as fathers of William, Mary, Elinor, Sarah & Anne. Visitation (1634)& Siddons show Richard as father of William. We presume that he was also father of the other children mentioned by Robinson but it seems reasonable to consider that there is some doubt as to the parentage of William's siblings.
