  Commoners shows Zouch as father (by Elizabeth Evering) of William of Cheriton father of Henry of Cheriton father of the Caroline who married Ralph Drake. BLG1952 confuses the issue by showing Elizabeth Collard as mother of Mary, Elizabeth & Caroline, which is clearly wrong given the dates, but does then later identify Caroline as daughter of a Henry. We presume to show as follows.
