i. William Pulteney
The following Sir William is the first mentioned by both BE1883, which describes him as "of very ancient descent", and TCP (Bath). The fact that BE1883 does not show earlier generations is possibly either an indication that there was some uncertainty as to Sir William's ancestry or an implication that there was a complication with the descent which meant that, for an earldom which lasted just one generation, it was thought 'not worth' spelling out the details.
  a. Sir William Pulteney (d after 04.1685, before 09.10.1691)

(E)+ other issue - daughter (d infant), Arabella (d young), Elizabeth (d unm 1747)

  C. Jane Pulteney
  m. _ Croxhall
3. Elizabeth Pulteney

4. Agnes Pulteney
  Collins shows Agnes as married to William Ashby but the dates suggest that this cannot be the William, younger of Loseby, who dvp 1427. We show his wife above. It is, of course, possible that there was an Agnes of this generation who married a different William Ashby but such other William has not yet been identified on Ashby01.
5. Rosia Pulteney
  m. Sir George Sherard of Stapleford (a 1566)
Not mentioned by Collins but reported as of this generation by various web sites were the following Margaret & Dorothy. We have also seen Dorothy reported in some sites as of the next generation (daughter rather than sister of Francis).
6. Margaret Pulteney
7. Dorothy Pulteney
  m. Thomas Hodges
