Thomas Lyte (1568-1638) of SOM, portrait

I am writing the biographical entry for Thomas Lyte of Lytes Cary (1568-1638) for the New Dictionary of National Biography and would be very grateful for some help from any relations. I am specifically interested in the current location of a portrait of the said Thomas, dated 1611, which in 1893 was in the possession of a Miss Moneypenny. I would also be interested in any verifiable details of his parents, wives, and children, beyond the information included in H.C. Maxwell-Lyte's 1893 article on the family. I was lucky enough to see Thomas's royal genealogy, measuring 2 metres by 1.5 metres, yesterday in the British Library. A fascinating family!
