bullet  Marriage Notes:

It is beleived that Thomas may be the son of Lord Robert Harley and his wife's sister from a now lost diary (possibly Elizabeth's Harley's). There is also a Thomas Harley on the willof Lord Robert. However, there is no more solid proof that this is the correct Thomas or that Elizabeth was correct.
