    Notes 
    • Richardson's Royal Ancestry (citation details below), at Tyrwhit 18, gives the date of their marriage as "before 14 May 1509". But he also gives the date of their son Robert's birth (in two places, Lancaster 12.ii and Stafford 12) as "before 1504". Unless their son Robert was born several years before their marriage, which is vanishingly unlikely, surely the date of the marriage of Robert Tyrwhit and Maud Tailboys should be anchored as "before 1504", not "before 14 May 1509".
