BP1934 (Egmont) reports that the David Perceval of Tykenham who is shown below (and on the continuation page) was descended from Ascelin Gouel de Perceval who accompanied the Conqueror to England. On Lovel02 we show what is often reported as the early generations of that descent - but note also the doubt expressed by TCP (Egmont) - but here (provisionally) provide an alternative connection (to Lovel01). We suspect that the following (top section) is not wholly secure though we have no reason to doubt its later generations.
