Henry was also father to at least four illegitimate children by Jane Halsall of Knowsley: Henry, Thomas, Ursula and Dorothy. I see Ursula is already attached so I attached Dorothy too given that I was working on her (formerly unattached) profile. Any questions - please ask. See Wikipedia for further details. :-)
