Can anyone provide proof of the immigrant David Wickliffe/Wycliffe's ancestry?

I know that everywhere you look on the internet, David Wickliffe is given as a grandson of Francis Wycliffe of Wycliffe, Yorkshire, through Francis's son Thomas or possibly his son Anthony.

The Yorkshire Visitations prove that Francis had a number of sons. I understand that at least two books, one by Thorckmorton and one by McPherson, state that David the Immigrant was from this family. I haven't seen the book, but I understand Throckmorton states that Thomas Wycliffe, son of Francis, married Mary Yonge, and Mary's sister Susan Yonge married Robert Evelyn, who organized the early Maryland group that David immigrated with. If so, David would be immigrating with his uncle.

I found evidence that Robert Evelyn did indeed marry a Susan Yonge, but is there any evidence that the Wycliffes married her relatives (other than a mere statement to the fact)?

Many people on this list claim Royal and Magna Carta descents from David Wycliffe/Wickliffe. But where is the proof?

I'm sure there is some proof of David's parentage somewhere. Luckily the name "David Wycliffe" is an unusual one. Perhaps records of the "Evelyn expedition" still exist in London. I assume no one has seen any Parish registers for David's birth in England...
