Families covered: Bawde in Bedfordshire, Bawde of Somerby

It appears that the Bawde family may have been at Somerby for several generations before Robert but we have yet to find a reliable source to identify the ancestors of the following Robert who is the first mentioned by Maddison. [For example, there is here a reference to an earlier Richard Bawde of Somerby.] VCH (Leicestershire, vol 5, Slawston) indicates that Robert may have been son of John Bawdes by Elizabeth, dau of Mary, widow of Richard Boyville of Othorpe.
