(It is prsumed that all five sons, here mentioned, were the children of Peter's second marriage.)
Transciber's Note:  I see no foundation for Homer CARRICO's statement that all five sons were Margaret's or even presumed to be Margaret's.  I'm not convinced we know, yet or ever will know precisely who was the mother of each child.
