The following comes from a note in TCP (vol III, Chandos, p133) which reports on the claim by Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges for the barony of Chandos. Sir Samuel claimed that the undermentioned Edward Bridges was bpt in Maidstone on 25.03.1603, being son of Robert of Maidsone (## just above). However, G.F. Beltz (Lancaster Herald) showed that:
- according to the will of his daughter Ann, Robert of Maidstone dspm;
- the insertion of the baptism record in Maidstone was "a modern [and doubtless fraudulent] insertion"; and that
- the following shows Edward's father and correct baptism date.
This is reported in some detail partly because of its general interest but mainly because Sir Samuel Egerton-Brydges was the well-known genealogist who (inter alia) edited & revised Collins's Peerage of England.
