The following is copied from Richard Hodgson, World Connect db=ancestorsearch, who had obtained the information from the website "Perrots of Pembrokeshire" at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~parrott/pembrokeshire.shtml
* Moved family to Haroldston sometime after 1442
* Next married Joane, daughter of John Arnold and widow of Llywelyn Warren of Warren. Her deed is dated 1465.
* Turvey: "Knighted sometime between 1442 and 1446, Perrot occupied high office in the earldom for more than twenty years, serving as sheriff and steward of the county." Either he or his son was employed as one of the councillors of Jasper Tudor. Note that although Sir Thomas was said to be in the battle of Mortimer's Cross, 2 February 1461, he was already dead, so it had to be his son, Thomas, who appears in the roster.
* Barnwell: "To this Sir Thomas, in connexion with Henry Malefant, a commission (14 Nov., 4 Hen. IV) was issued by Sir Francis A'Court to raise certain sums in Carew and other places, and to pay £200 in silver to Owen Glendwr, on condition of a cessation of hostilities. The money was first to be transferred to Stephen Perrot and John Castlemartin. The Henry Malefant here mentioned is probably the nephew of Stephen Malefant, who married Alice Perrot.
* Second son John = fate unknown. He might be the John Perrot of Haverfordwest for whom Sir William Perrot executed power of attorney, putting him in possession of lordship and manor of Tallacharn or Laugharne in Caemarthenshire on 9 June 2 Henry VII (1487). Sir John Perrot, Lord Deputy of Ireland, was in possession of this property at the time of his attainder.
* Third son William of Tallacharn in Caemarthenshire. His existence is known because there was an inquisition into his possessions in 2 Elizabeth. A descendant of this line might be the John Perrot of Haverfordwest who matriculated in Oxford in 1772. Perhaps other descendants of this branch are still around.
* Son Owen? ==> founder of the English branch at Northleigh, Oxfordshire.
* Son Stephen, d 20 June 1461.
* Daughter Jane, married Philip Elliott of Earware. There were 3 Jane Perrots from 3 straight generations who married into the Elliott family, generating confusion.
* Daughter Ellen, wife of Richard Wyriott of Orielton
* Daughter Margaret, second wife of Gruffydd ap Nicholas, who died during the battle of Mortimer's cross, fighting for the Yorkists.
* Daughter Emma, wife of Sir Richard Newton (d 1444), who became Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas in 1439.
