VCH (Bedfordshire, vol 3, Parishes: Marston Moretaine) & Nichols support VCH (Clifton Reynes) in showing that Richard was father of Thomas (d 1451) father of Thomas. The latter Thomas is shown as succeeded by John, "probably his son", father of Elizabeth. VCH (Clifton Reynes) identifies Richard [who was father (by Maud) of 3 daughters, one of whom married Thomas Lowe] as brother of Thomas uncle of Elizabeth. HOWEVER, both Visitation (Surrey, 1530+1572, Duncombe) & Visitation (Buckinghamshire, 1634, Low of Clifton Reynes) show the Richard, father of 3 daughters (including Anne who m. Thomas Low) as son of a John 'of Clifton Reynes' (by a dau of Broughton of Toddington) with Visitation (Buckinghamshire) showing that John as son of Roger 'of Clifton Reynes' by Anne/Agnes, dau of John Tirringham. Furthermore, the Duncombe records identify Mary as dau of Richard son of John. However, PROVISIONALLY we ignore the Visitations and follow VCH, Lipscomb & Nichols but note that this may have to be reviewed in due course.
