BEB1841, which reports only Richard's marriage to Elizabeth Fiennes, suggests that Richard's father was Daniel of Southwick son of the above Daniel. We follow Visitation which omits the additional generation.

  The above children of Richard by Elizabeth Fiennes are as reported by Visitation. BEB1841 mentions only a son Richard ("the last heir male") and a daughter who married Richard Whitehead (and left an only dau/heir Mary m. Alexander Thistelthwayte), which appears to contradict the above information. However, BLG1886 (Thistlethwayte of Southwick Park) supports BEB1841 in reporting that Southwick passed through such a marriage (although BLG1886 does not identify the mother of the following daughter).
