Who are the parents of Mabel Bellingham

I'm trying to find better evidence for Mabel's heritage. She married  Sir Richard Duckett of Grayrigg, Westmoreland; and her father is supposedly Roger Bellingham ... but which one, and who were his parents?

Flower's Visitation of Yorkshire does name Sir Robert Bellingham and his wife Elizabeth Tunstall, as the parents of Mabel


Although finding some primary documents is ideal, in the meantime I would trust the Visitations over Sir Bernard Burke, who was notorious for inventing lineages and making many mistakes.  It's possible he has confused Sir Roger Bellingham, (Mabel's nephew) who married Mabell Mydelton and instead made him Mabel's father?

I think the strange part -- and it might not be -- is the constant bouncing between Robert/Richard/Roger as first names (by the sources who attempt to refer to the same person). But Mabel is really bugging me! It's been 3 weeks, and I'm still not really satisfied with the info. But I was thinking something similar... chucking Burke for Visitations... although it's strange how I thought the same thing the other day... is she really a Middleton? Do you think I should leave her unconnected?
