  The following comes from BHO ('An Essay towards a Topographical History of the County of Norfolk', Francis Blomfield, vol 8, 'North Erpingham Hundred: North Repps and South Repps') which identifies the following John as 2nd son of Sir Robert and brother of Sir Bartholomew.

  Blomfield disagrees with the Visitation over the next generation, showing Henry & Elizabeth as parents of Henry of Thorp Market (m. Elizabeth Grymston, father of the Henry of Mendham who dsp) & John of West Walton (m1. Margaret Smyth, m2. Thomazin Dereham). Visitation shows them as parents of Henry of Mendham (dsp), Francis (father of the John who m1. Margaret Smith, m2. Thomasine Derham) and a John. We combine these sources, indicating that Blomfield (which focuses on the West Walton line) omitted a generation on the Thorp Market line and Visitation omitted a generation on the West Walton line.
