There are 2 sections on the following family in FMG, shown consecutively. The following combines them. The first section shows that the undermentioned Anthony, Gilbert & Alice were possibly siblings. We show them as children of ...
?? Roberts
1. Anthony Roberts of Methley (bur 01.06.1635)
  m. Ann (bur 02.01.1636)
  A. William Roberts of Methley (bpt 09.12.1598, a 1667)
  The second section shows only one wife for William, his widow Alice (a 1709), showing her as mother of William, Anthony, Anne & Alice. The first section shows that he married 4 times with more children with the first wife being their mother even though, if it is assumed that they were baptised soon after birth, the baptism dates would attribute the children differently between the wives. We make that assumption.
