    mar Elizabeth Whetenhall and had issue.

  3. Martha Lynne,
    NOT Margaret.
    She 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.
