    He is said in various visitation pedigrees and other genealogical sources to have been a son of Richard de Hexstall and Anne Grovehurst (supposedly a daughter of Richard Grovehurst of Horsmondon, Kent), the former a son of Richard or Thomas de Hexstall and Elizabeth Hewet (definitely a daughter of John Hewet and Catherine Boweles). On 27 Jan 2021, Butler University historian Scott Swanson posted a long post to soc.genealogy.medieval summarizing everything that can be established about this William Hexstall, in the course of which he established that the aforementioned "Richard de Hexstall" almost certainly did not exist, but was instead the result of confusion on the part of Thomas Philipott in his 1776 Villare Cantianum; or Kent Surveyed and Illustrated. Thomas de Hexstall and Elizabeth Hewet existed, and were married to one another, but no evidence exists that they had a son named Richard. A Henry Hexstall married a Joan Grovehurst (daughter or sister and coheir of Richard Grovehurst) by 15 Nov 1466. But nothing exists to confirm the alleged parentage of this William Hexstall.
