  B. George Chambre
  Commoners reports that from George "sprang the Chambres of Loppington .. and Wolverley" and next mentions Francis of Wolverley (a 1676) and then his grandson John. A site visitor (MF, 15.03.12) has kindly provided has provided a little supplemental information on this family which is shown below in italics. He starts with a George Chambre. Having considered the likely dates of George's grandfather John, we had thought that that George was probably grandson of this George. However, the dates shown above for the descendants of this George's brother Thomas suggest that he may have either been this George or his son. Provisionally, we show him as his son.
