The only extra person on that list is Isabel St Leger (and Richard is missing) and from the biography it's not totally clear what the source is for Isabel, though it looks like it could be a different Richardson publication?

Attached to the profile though are other daughters of Margery Donnet and John St Leger -  Anne Skinner; Philippa Pympe and also Isabel

On the profile pages for Anne and Philippa, there are only Ancestry links as sources, but on their father's page there is a link to TudorPlace and that lists Philippa and Isabel, but unfortunately the link doesn't work.  Tudorplace in any case isn't a totally reliable source.

Again it would be interesting to know what Richardson has used as his sources for the eight children he lists.

This seems to be Philippa Pympe who should be Philippa Thornbury not St Leger (see previous question in thread)

Thank you, John Atkinson, for looking at this question, and your reply!

I know there are many needs on WikiTree. This one needs someone with the right, and experience to do an overhaul on it!
