  BLG1952 primarily follows the Menheniot branch of this family but reports the following senior line albeit without confirming what family name they used. Consequently we are not sure what family names were taken by which of Osbert's descendants. It does appear that some changed to Hamblie or Hambly or Hambley but that some continued with Hamley. What is shown below is sometimes somewhat arbitrary on this.
