"NOTE: There seems to be some uncertainty regarding who Francis Roberts mother was - according to the work of K.J. Valentine (see source above), Francis was the son of Frances WELLES (d.1560).

However, according to Burke's A genealogical and heraldic history of the extinct and dormant baronetcies of England:

"Edmund Roberts, esq. of Willesdon, in Middlesex, who died in 1585, left by Katherine, his first wife, sister of Robert Chester, knt. three sons and three daughters, viz. - Francis, his heir.""

There is NO UNCERTAINTY, we have it from his own hand and his MI. Burke's is not RELIABLE!!
