Please see the attached link

It is a family file in Ancestry for this family and has several sources.  The mother Alice Scrope died in England and the father Edward Woodward came to America with sons Richard, Robert and daughter Elizabeth.  Both the Woodward and Scrope families were very prominent in England.
None of the documents on the family tree you linked prove the relationships.
I am an experienced genealogist, have traveled to Chester County more than once and have books on the Woodward family.  There are numerous sources tying Richard, Robert, and Elizabeth to Edward and Alice Scrope Woodward.  Obviously you do not welcome input from others, therefore I will leave you to your own conclusions.
Do you have any clues about the identify of Robert Woodward's wife? Is there a connection to the Yarnell/Yarnall family before 1690?

The ROBERT BURL WOODWARD ( INFORMATION PAGE ) on (2004) has good information on the emigration of Edward Woodward's family from England to Pennsylvania and their purchase of land acquired originally by William Penn. He writes:
"It appeard that only Edwards family immigrated to America in or about 1687. They were Edward's son Richard, Richard's wife Jane, along with their two sons Richard jr. & William and their daughter Martha; Edwards son Robert with his wife and their son Richard; and Edward's daughter Elizabeth; along with them came Edwards son-in-law Thomas Eavenson (husband of Edwards deceased daughter Hannah) who brought along his two sons Ralph & Richard {He would later marry his sister-in-law Elizabeth).
