m1. Anne Foster (dau/heir of _ Foster or Forster of Writtle)
  Except as shown, the next few generations are supported by Visitation (Bedfordshire, 1566, 'Pygott (of Stratton and Holme)') & Visitation (Bedfordshire, 1634, 'Pygott (of Gravenhurst)'). There is contradiction as to which wife was mother of certain on Thomas's children. 'Pygott (of Stratton and Holme)' shows them as all by Anne Forster but 'Pygott (of Gravenhurst)' shows that Agnes/Anne had some (unnamed) children and then shows Elizabeth Iwardby as moter of William & Francis. We follow 'Pigott of Doddershall'.
