Visitation reports some earlier generations than what we show here, being 'of Tetworth', noting that they were not originally recorded in the official record. We ignore them because they show the father of Robert (who married Juliana Arthur) as Thomas ("of Bristow") whereas BP1934 suggests that it was Robert's uncle who was a Thomas. BP1934 starts with Roger but mentions his uncle and cousins, as follows ...
