Edward Rich of Horndon (d 1599)
m. Joan Saunders (dau of Edward Saunders of London)
1. Edward Rich of Horndon
2. Robert Rich of Stondon
  m. Elizabeth Dutton (dau of Sir Thomas Dutton)
  A. Nathaniel Rich of Stondon
BEB1844 gives conflicting notes on which wife was the mother of Nathaniel's sons, firstly saying "by the latter he had two sons" and then identifying Robert as "second son of Nathaniel Rich, by Elizabeth Hampden". TCB supports that the mother of the sons was Elizabeth Hampden. We note that we are not sure how her father Sir Edward fits into the Hampden family shown on 'Hampden1'.
