John Dod of Knoles (a temp Richard II who r. 1377-1399)
m. Johanna Warren (dau/heir of John Warren of Ightfield)
1. Hugo Dod of Knoles (a 1412)
  m. Agnes de Cloverley (dau/coheir of Roger de Cloverley)
  A. William Dod of Calverhall aka Cloverley, Salop (a 1455)
  Commoners does not identify William's wife but Visitation does (as shown albeit with the family name shown as Etton rather than Eyton). Commoners then adds a generation not shown by Visitation, the following John, and shows John's wife as Matilda, dau of Ludovic Eyton of Eyton. The Eyton records show Anna Eyton as married to William Dodd so we follow Visitation on this.

  (A) John Dod of Calverhall (dsp 1610)
  Visitation, the whole record of which is shown by the Harleian editor in italics within square brackers which normally means either uncertainty or that the data was not in the original manuscript but has been added by the editor from other sources, calls the eldest son not John but Richard who, by Margaret, dau/heir of John Gibbons, was father of John (m. Winifrid, dau of Thomas Powell of Horsley), Richard of Cloverlery (m. Elizabeth, dau of Thomas Aston of Chekemil), William & Robert and then ends with that generation. We provisionally follow Commoners but note our concern on this signficant disagreement.
