    • Notes: 
    • Richard Newberry has long been claimed as the son of Richard Newborough and Elizabeth Horsey. However this claim has been proven false as Richard Newberry is named as a son in the 1596 will of his actual father William Newberry of Yarcombe, Devonshire, England. Any past royal ancestry attributed to Richard Newberry through Richard Newborough should be treated as false.
