BLG1952 reports that there is some uncertainty on the first generations known of this family as "there is a gap of a generation, owing to the destruction of the Parish Registers of Handworth for the years 1560-1640 (or, as it is more forcibly expressed in the later volumes - "The rest rats have eat.")".
