      Published sources disagree on the parentage of William Ball. His possible parentage of William Ball of Lincoln's Inn, son of John and Elizabeth (Webb) Ball has been disproved. The possibility of him being the son of Rev. Richard and Elizabeth Ball of London, vicar of St. Helen's Bishopsgate, also appears to have been disproved.
