We presume that this was the William who is mentioned in a note in Visitation (Oxfordshire, 1566+1574, Brome of Holton) as bur 17.12.1461 but does not specifically identify a connection between him and later generations. That record, together with Visitation (Oxfordshire, 1566+1574, Brome of Clifton), provides the following. The latter record starts with the following Christopher who, having regard to the dates, we presume to have been William's son. Not mentioned by the Visitations was ...
