(1) Some web sites insert an additional generation here, a Walter (m. Matilda), but (provisionally) we do not.
(2) Some of the following Nicholases may have married more than once which might be why some sites come up with wives' names which are not mentioned by other sites. Some sites have clearly confused which Nicholas married which wife. The allocations we have made are subject to change. Please remember that this page is still DRAFT and has not been launched formally into the database. We are not confident that we have reported this family correctly and would welcome input that would help us release this page properly into the database.
