According to a report of a 1663-64 law suit, daughter Sarah Bodvile secretly married Robert Robartes, Viscount Bodmin in 1657. She was disinherited by John Bodvile, who changed his will in favor of a friend, Thomas Wynn. After Sarah and Robert Robartes had two sons, she reconciled with father John -- but John didn’t change his will before he died. Lord Privy Seal, Sir John, Lord Robartes contested the will in 1663-64. My reading of the legal summation is that he lost the suit.
