Visitation reports that "descended of Sir William Lovell, knt, Earl of Ewe [EU], slain in Normandy temp. Hen. 1." was ...
Ancelow (Andrew?) Lovell (a temp Henry II who r. 1154-1189)
1. Sir Thomas Lovell in Norfolk (a 1192)
  m. _ Bendish (dau/coheir fo John Bendish of Barton Bendish)
  A. John Lovell of Barton Bendish, Norfolk (a 1216)
  i. John Lovell of Barton Bendish (d 1274?)
  a. William Lovell of Barton Bendish
The Harleian Editor indicates concern with the inconsistency of some of the dates mentioned in the Visitation for these generations. An additional concern is that there may be a generation or two missing. RHG shows the following Thomas as son of William (a 1357) son of John (d 1328) son of John (a 1315). We do not know whether this supports the above other than with regard to the dates or provides intervening generations.
  (1) Thomas Lovell of Barton Bendish (d 1415)
  m1. Jone Muswell (dau/heir of Robert Muswell)
  (A) Nicholas Lovell of Wroughton, later of Barton Bendish (a 1420)
  RHG shows Nicholas (d 1453) as (elder) brother of Ralph of Beauchamp (a 1453, had issue), the following Thomas, William of Langford, John of Cleye (b after 1407), Alice & Beatrice. Provisionally, we follow Visitation in showing the following Thomas as son rather than brother of Nicholas.
(i) Sir Thomas Lovell of Barton Bendish (a 1449)
  RHG shows Thomas as father of Thomas (m. Ann, dau of Robert Tappes of Norwich) and the following Ralph. Provisionally, we show the children as reported by Visitation.
