  • . . the first Sir Thomas married to Petronilla Corbet; two of his sons, John and 'Thomas', married to Petronilla de Drayton and 'Petronilla de Stanton'; and each of his three sons, Sir John, 'Sir Thomas', and Reyner, having a son John, two of these last three Johns being knighted. The one who married Matilda de Erdington seems to have been 'son of Thomas' and of course nephew to Reyner, not son, as given in the pedigree. He again had an eldest son John, who was knighted, and a daughter Matilda, besides a second son, Sir Thomas de Lee of Okehirst, married (according to Hardy) to Sibilla. This last Sir John is shown in the pedigree as having a son Robert who married Margaret Astley, the heiress of another very ancient family (showing an unbroken descent from 1100-1135) and was the first Lee of Coton. It is quite certain from documentary evidence, including the Inquisition Post Mortem of Margaret herself, that her husband's name was Roger, not Robert, and Sir W. Hardy thought it most probable that he was younger son of Sir John Lee's brother, Sir Thomas of Okehirst, whose eldest son was according to
