Thomas Conyers of Whitby, Yorkshire (d 1449)
m. Alice
1. Thomas Conyers (d 1481)
  m. Alice Danby
  A. Christopher Conyers of Scarborough, Yorkshire (d 04-5.1506)
  Berry provides the above connection but, other than to show that Christopher m. Barbara, does not follow Christopher's line any futher, instead following his brother Thomas. Walker starts with a Christopher of Scarborough (d 1506) m. Margaret. We presume that this was the same Christopher as the arms shown by Walker are the same as those shown by Berry and the dates are right.
