Lord Montfort: and by her, who died 20 May, 1768, and is buried at Caversham, had issue six sons; 1. Charles-Henry, born June 18, 1749; 2. William, born January 22, 1757, who in May 1775, was presented to the rectory of St. Giles's, Reading, and the vicarage of Chelsea; 3. Thomas, born Feb. 7, 1752, now a lieutenant in the royal navy; 4. George, born Dec. 1, 1754; 5. Edward, born Dec. 12, 1758, and is Captain in the 7th regiment of foot; and, 6.

There seems to be a discrepancy regarding Frances Bromley, Charles's first wife. The first account suggests that they were divorced, the second that Frances died and was buried at Caversham. It is possible that the report of a divorce from his first wife is really linked to the divorce from his second.
