Marriage BET. 1515 - 1518 Angmering, Sussex, England probably
1. Robert was granted Parham by Henry VIII, 1540 however, Parham as such, was not built until after 1577 by his son Thomas! Because of this, no children are shown herein born in Parham until after 1577.
2. Only the Palmer Pedigree records his marriage to the widow Blanche Reynolds and all his children from her.
The Palmer Pedigree disagrees with many other records for Robert's children but the Palmer Pedigree is more credible.
Because the Palmer Pedigree records his son Thomas born ca 1520, and because some other records show a Thomas born 1618-1619, we believe the historically important Thomas (he began construction of Parham) is the son of widow Reynolds and leaves all children recorded herein from her. Also, the birth dates for the wives of Robert's sons provide credence to later birth dates for his children.
Robert's first wife, Bridget or Beatrix, may have had children born between 1498 and 1510 with some or all the same names recorded herein.
Angmering, Sussex, is 6 miles south of Parham. The builder of Parham, Sir Thomas Palmer, was the son of Robert Palmer, rich mercer of London, who died in 1544. [Victoria County History of Sussex]
