i. Elizabeth Southwell 
  m. George Heneage 
  BP1934 only identifies Sir Richard's 2nd wife, naming her Mary, dau of Thomas Darcy of Danbury. Visitation identifies her as ... 
  m2/p. Mary Darcy (dau of Thomas Darcy of Tolleshunt)
  By showing their children connected by wavy rather than solid lines, Visitation, which identifies the above Elizabeth as "his only da. and heir", indicates that the following children were illegitimate, presumably born before their marriage. Visitation identifies their elder son as Richard of Woodrising, as do the Copley records, but BP1934 identifies him as Richard of Horsham St. Faiths. 
  ii. Richard Southwell of Horsham St. Faiths (and/or Woodrising) 
  m1. Bridget Copley (dau of Sir Roger Copley of Rowghey)

  m. Ann Hawes (dau of Sir Thomas Hawes, Sergeant-at-law) 
Visitation ends with this generation. BP1934 identifies the great-great-great-grandson of Richard of Horsham St. Faiths as the undermentioned Sir Robert, indicating that there were two intervening generations.
