Walker starts his pedigree of this family with Ansketil. The two earlier generations are as reported by BE1883 and must be viewed with caution not least because they are identified as 'of Brancepeth' yet Walker, through identifying Ansketil's wife as heiress of someone of Brancepeth, implies that Brancepeth may have come into the family at his time rather than earlier.
