William was probably the eldest son, and followed his father's occupation as a draper in Henley-in-Arden. He and his wife Joan had seven children who are known from wills and parish registers.
Their son Richard was a mercer, and settled in Banbury in Oxfordshire, where he was a member of the Corporation by 1587, and twice Bailiff in the 1590s. He was involved with the order to take down the Maypole at Nethrop in 1589, and the High Cross in Banbury around 1600. The next son was Robert, then John who was a yeoman in Henley-in-Arden. William and Joan's only daughter Isabella was the first of their children to be recorded in the Wootton Wawen parish register. Their other sons were William and Edward, and Thomas (qv) who also settled in Banbury.
