Two of the offspring of that union {Sir Thoms Urswick and Johanna Hertforth} were Robert (Robert Urswick of Badsworth, High Sheriff, 1466) and Ellen. Robert married Katherine, daughter of Sir Thomas Haryngton, of Brierley, and Ellen was first wedded to Sir Richard Molineux, son and heir of Sir William who was son and heir of Sir John Molineux, living in the reign of Edward the 3rd. By Sir Richard, Ellen had two sons and three daughters, and becoming a widow in the year 1397, was afterwards married to Sir James Haryngton, a younger brother of Sir Thomas of Brierley.
