Belasius (a 1066)
1. Rowland or Rouland, later of Belasyse (d temp Henry I who r. 1100-1135)
  m. Elgiva (dau of Ralph de Belasyse of Belasyse)
  BE1883 jumps from Rowland to his great-grandson Sir Rowland (m. Mary Spring). Collins reports that Rouland's son/heir was Ralph who was succeeded by William (de Belasis) who was probably father of Robert father of William. Presumably that line died out for the next mentioned was the Rouland who m. Mary Spring.

  Foster disagrees with BE1883 & Collins on the next 2 generations, showing John's successor as John (m. Anne, dau of Robert Lamplugh of Lamplugh) father of Sir Robert (m. Margery, dau of Richard Dalton) father of William (m. Jennet, dau of Thomas Tipping) father of Thomas (m1/2. Cicely Hutton, m2/1. ??, m3.
