Charles Fairfax (of Menston)

(5 March 1595/96 - 22 December 1673)
     The Gen-Medieval mailing list had a query from Christopher T. Smithson:
I am researching a Fairfax lineage that one of the descendants Eleanor Fairfax (b. 31 Jan 1631 in Menston) marries a George Smithson of Moulton, Yorkshire, England in 1653. Eleanor was the daughter of Col. Charles Fairfax of Menston born in Denton on 5 Mar 1597. He married Mary Breary daughter of John Breary of Scow Hall & Menston. Eleanor was a sister of Lord Fairfax of Cameron.
Col. Charles Fairfax was the son of Sir Robert Fairfax of Denton and Non Appleton born at Bilbro in 1560 and died 2 May 1640. He married Ellen Aske daughter of Robert Aske of Aughton and Elizabeth Dawnay, daughter of Sir John Dawnay. She died 28 Aug 1620.
Sir Robert Fairfax's father is Sir Thomas Fairfax of Denton & Nun Appleton (b. 1521; knighted in 1579 and died 28 Jan 1599. He married Dorothy Gale Rokely, widow who died 20 Jan 1596. She was a daughter of George Gale of York and Mary, daughter of Lord of Kendel.
Sir Thomas' parents were Sir William Fairfax of Steeton and Isabel Thwaits.
According to the information in Plantagenet Ancestry by Doug Richardson he has Ellen Aske marrying Gabriel Fairfax. Also I am showing an extra generation before getting to William and Isabel. Also I have Elizabeth Dawnay as Ellen Aske's mother.
My question is which is correct?

     In his book Analecta Fairfaxiana, Charles Fairfax of Menston records (The Fairfax Correspondence, i, 314) a conversation he had in 1640 with 'my dear father, the first Thomas, Lord Fairfax... not many months before his death... He, walking in his great parlour at Denton I only then present, did seem much perplexed and troubled in his mind. But after a few hours broke out with these or the like expressions: 'Charles, I am thinking what will become of my family when I am gone. I have added a title to the heir male of my house, and shall leave a competent estate to support it. Ferdinando will keep it, and leave it to his son. But such is Tom's pride (led much by his wife) that he, not contented to live in our rank, will destroy his house'. Charles Fairfax (of Menston) was buried in Fewston, Yorkshire.
