William Gerard of Kingsley (d before 1316)
Ormerod starts with William as son of Gerard of Hawarden and father of the William who m. Matilda de Glasshowse by Emma de Kingsley. The continuation, which follows BP1934, shows this William as son of William (m. Emma de Kingsley) son of William son of Gerard. Ormerod is therefore missing out a William (son of Gerard & grandfather of this William) and this William. Wotton includes the first William (son of Gerard) but omits this one.
