  Ord appears to have been confused by the different Thomases. He shows that this Thomas had by Jane Staynes a son called Thomas who was was his successor Thomas and m. Constance Lutton (dau of Ralph Lutton of Knapton by dau of Sir Griffith Boynton). BLG1952 shows that, whilst there was a son Thomas by Jane Staines, his successor Thomas was by Constance Hutton, dau of Ralph Hutton of Knapton by dau of Sir Francis Boynton.

  Ord shows that the Thomas who succeeded was "of Peirceburgh", changed his name to Hustler, and, by Constance Lutton, was father of Thomas (d young), Constance & William. We are following BLG1952 which shows the Thomases differently and also shows William as this Thomas's younger brother rather than his son.
