  Research Notes:

From Nicholas Read's will of 1599, it has been assumed that Walter and Alexander were his cousins rather than his brothers because:
- He names Thomas as his brother
- The bequests to Walter's and Alexander's children are smaller than to many other heirs.

Unclear what the relationship was between the Nicholas Read who died in 1598 and the above.
