BP1934 reports that the following David Perceval 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). The continuation page given for David (Perceval1) provides an alternative connection (to Lovel01) though the caveat at the top of that page should be noted.
