From Huntington's A Genealogical Memoir of the Lo-Lathrop Family . . .

ROBERT succeeded to the estates of his father in Cherry Burton, and during his lifetime made considerable additions to them. He had married Ellen --------, who survived him fourteen years, and at her death left a will, which supplies for us the names of some of her descendants which, but for this will, might not have reached us. The names preserved to us in this will are the eldest son Thomas, and his children Robert, Elizabeth, and Isabell, and Robert's wife, Alice Clarke; her son Lawrence, and his wife Elizabeth and their children, Edward and Agnes; her daughter Margaret, the wife of Robert Hodgeson, and her own sister Margaret. Her sons were the executors of her will.

Mr. Robert Lothrope died in 1558. His will, bearing date, North Burton (Sheributon), July 16, 1558, was proved at York, Oct. 20, 1558, and makes the following bequests. It will be seen that the later will of his widow, as reported above, confirms the list of his children as given in the will below. This will is thus fully reported as best setting before us the condition and social position of this representative of the Lothrop family more than three centuries ago.
