Although Commoners vol i, Lane of King's Bromley identifies Sir Henry of Durance who married a Maynard as great-grandson of this Robert, we disregard that as, whilst Visitation Middlesex suggests that Robert dsp sb. dsps?, Visitation Essex shows him as having just one child, James dsp, and various web sites including some which focus on the history of Loughton confirm that Sir Robert had only one child who died in infancy. We follow Visitation Kent in showing Sir Henry as Sir Robert's nephew.
