  A. Geffery Dormer of West Wycombe & Thame
The Oxoniensis article referred to on page Dormer2 suggests that Geoffery married twice, Margery (5 sons & 8 daughters) & Alice/Urslua Collingridge, with Margarey being the mother of Geoffrey, William, Edward, Michael & Peter. BP1934 reports only the marriage to Ursula Collingridge as does Visitation which specifically shows her as mother of William, Geoffrey, Michael & Peter. Provisionally, we follow Visitation.
