Hi Does anyone know the names of the children of  Sir William Wray and his wife Olympia Tufton.

If I am correct I  one may be Theodosia, Born 1667  in Ashby in Lincs. She married Peter Bainbridge Born 1667 in Leadenham.    Any clues please.

Referring to The Wrays of Glentworth Vol 2 by Dalton, Sir William Wray and Dame Olympia had three sons and five daughters. The eldest son Sir Christopher Wray c1652-1679 succeeded as 2nd Baronet of Ashby and succeeded his cousin Sir Bethel Wray to become 6th Baronet of Glentworth. He died unmarried August 1679 and was buried at St Giles in the Fields, London 31st August. The second son Edward died in London Feb 1671-2. The third son Sir William Wray succeeded as 3rd Baronet Ashby and 7th Baronet Glentworth and died unmarried about March 1685-6. The five daughters of William and Olympia were Olympia, Margaret, Albinia, Tufton and Drury.

Thanks Chris , very helpful.  On reflection Theodosia Wray Born 16667 was unlikely to be a daughter of  Olympia & Sir William Wray as her mother would have been 43 when she was born , though possible. It is therefore more likely that Theodosia was their grandaughter or a niece.   Theodosia married  Peter Bainbridge from Leadenham Lincs B.1667, but not sure what date or where they married.   Any thoughts ? Regards  Paul
