  m. Sybilla (dau/heir of the lord of Crickhowell)

1. Richard Pauncefort, last of Hasfield
  m. Anne Rudin (dau of Edmund Rudin or Rudion of Walhouse)
  BP1934 reports that Richard & Anne "had four sons, of whom the 3rd was" Grimbald. Commoners shows an intervening generation with "£inter alios" Walter as father of Grimbald. We presume (provisionally) that Walter was an elder brother of Grimald.
  A. Walter Pauncefort of Witham, Lincolnshire
  m. Anne Yelverton (dau of John Yelverton of Norfolk)
As mentioned above, Commoners shows Walter as father rather than elder brother of Grimbald. Commoners also shows 3 other children of Walter & Anne, Henry + Robert + Rachel.

ii. Robert Pauncefort
  m. Sarah Nicholets (dau of John Nicholets of Herefordshire)
  a. Grimbald Pauncefort
  m. Gulielma Bridges (dau of Colonel _ Bridges)
  Commoners shows Rachel as sister rather than daughter of Robert but we presume to show her as his daughter because she is described in TCP (Kincardine) & TSP (Elgin & Kincardine) as daughter of Robert Pauncefort of Herefordshire.
b. Rachel Pauncefort (d 17.03.1753)

  BP1934 (Pauncefort Duncombe) identifies George's wife Henrietta as dau of James of Red Hall, son of Simon of North Luffenham. However, BP1934 (Digby) identifies her as ...
  m. (12.01.1769) Henrietta Digby (dau of Simon Digby of North Luffenham, sister of James of Red Hall)
