There is a lot of conflicting information about who sired his children. He appears to have had two wives, Annie Arderne, whom he married in 1562, and Beatrice Calverly, whom he married in 1568. Most online genealogies list one of the other as the parent of all of his children, and omit mention of the other spouse. Both lived to a fairly old age, and there is no mention anywhere of divorce. However, it appears that all children were born after 1568, making it unlikely that Annie Arderne was the mother.

Another source (not verified): Robert Hyde - was born in 1543, lived in Denton, Lancashire, England and died on 22 Mar 1614 in Stockport, England . He was the son of Robert Hyde and Jane Davenport.
