Thomas Reynolds born 1550, parents?

+2 votes

I am trying to find Thomas Reynolds' PARENTS.

Here is the lineage I am working from. Please note that most people have Christopher Tillman Reynolds as this Thomas's father. That is incorrect! Christopher's will clearly states that his son Thomas was born 1654. 

Thomas Reynolds* (1550 - 1604) Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England, m. Jane Powell
14th great-grandfather

Lady Joane Reynolds* (1577 - 1620) m. Lord Ralfe Gibson
daughter of Thomas Reynolds*

Thomas Gibson* (1599 - 1642)
son of Lady Joane Reynolds*

Thomas Gibson* (1620 - 1652)
son of Thomas Gibson*

Thomas Gibson* Sr. (1639 - 1734)
son of Thomas Gibson*

Thomas Gibson* Jr. (1657 - 1734)
son of Thomas Gibson* Sr.

Thomas Gibson* III (1691 - 1734)
son of Thomas Gibson* Jr.

    Yes, I have that marriage date of 1593 and I did find it strange that they got married so late. After all I show they had these children before they got married;

    Ann Reynolds 1571-1643

    Lady Joane Reynolds 1577-1620

    I think something else is going on here. It seems more likely that they got married in 1570 a year before Ann was born. This is only a theory and I have no proof. 

    Do you have access to international records? I don't, this is why I am asking on here. 

    Also, I was able to find Jane Powell's parents (Thomas' wife) and the timeline is correct. 

    So the question remains, 

    Who were Thomas Reynolds (1550-1604) parents?
