      of Southwick Hall, JP,
      born 1614,
      mar Grace Cade,
      detailed his aunt and grandparents in Herald's Visitation 1682 (essentially confirmed the entire structure here),
      died 11 Jan 1694 [using [NJ] date format, note that at the time this was regarded as the end of 1693], age 79 yrs,
      bur Southwick,

      2. Mary Lynne, mar Martyn Johnson [bapt 1652] and had issue.

  2. William Lynne, born 1597,
    mar Elizabeth Whetenhall and had issue.

  3. Martha Lynne,
    NOT Margaret,
    would be named after her grandmother Martha Throckmorton, who died 1600,
    so perhaps born est c.1601.
    There is apparently a Martha Lynne, bapt 17 July 1598, Haddon, Huntingdonshire (now in Cambridgeshire). (todo) See original. This could be her since Haddon is close to her mother's family home of Morborne.
    She mar John Blennerhassett [of near Tralee, Co.Kerry, Ireland] and had issue.
    Her aunt Elizabeth Forrest was married to Sir Arthur Denny of Tralee, Co.Kerry, which is probably how she met Blennerhassett.
    She moved to near Tralee, Co.Kerry.
