The birth order of the children above is debated as is the question of who is the father of Robert Fiske. One source states the father of Robert Fiske is Richard of Broadgates, while another source claims Robert's father is Simon Fiske. The above listing is one order of children, another possible order is: Robert Fiske, John Fiske, George Fiske, Nicholas Fiske, Jeffery Fiske, Jeremy Fiske, William Fiske, and finally Richard Fiske.

The source that claims the order stated in the previous paragraph also says that this person's (Simon) will was dated January 25, 1505 and he died in 1505 in Laxfield. This would have made him about 8 years old at the time of his death, meaning this was the incorrect Simon Fiske, the dates are incorrect, or the father of Robert is actually Richard Fiske of Broadgates (claimed by a second source). For these reasons, the person believed to be Robert's father is Richard Fiske of Broadgates, not Simon.
