BEB1841 (Bellingham of Hilsington) starts with the Sir Robert Bellingham who married Elizabeth Tunstall, identifying him as 10th in descent from ...
Alan de Bellingham (a 'tempore Conquestoris' ie temp William I who r. 1066-1087)
1. ?? de Bellingham
  Visitation (Sussex) starts with the following Richard. The dates make it appear that there should be another generation between him and the above Alan but the generations given set the Sir Robert Bellingham who married Elizabeth Tunstall as 10th in descent from Alan.
  A. Richard Bellingham (a 1189)
i. Endo Bellingham
  a. Roger Bellingham

  ((A)) Sir Robert Bellingham (d 12.03.1476) - continued below
  In due course we hope to find a reliable source against which to compare the above-shown ancestry for Sir Robert. The Tripod web site referred to below provides 4 genrations before him, showing him as son of Sir Robert son (by Anne Barburne) of Robert son (by Margaret de Burnsheads) of Richard son of William, but that site appears to have been based largely on the IGI which is not known for its reliability regarding early generations.
