This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

On 'Armorial' (p134) gives a little information about SIr John Dumaresq, noting that he derived his descent from the family of Dumaresq of La Haule and reporting that "This section of the family is represented by George Dumaresq, Esq., of Seafield, S. Laurence." On p139, 'Armorial' shows that the following John had issue with the note that "This branch is represented by George Dumaresq, Esq., of Seafield." From this we deduce that the following John, who must have lived in the early-mid 17th century, was most probably ancestor of the under-mentioned Sir John Dumaresq.
