This page was reviewed on 24.03.20 using Earwalker's work. That led us to completely redo the upper section that had previously relied on Visitation (Rutland, 1618, 'Hunt'). That Visitation identifies the Nicholas who is shown below as m. Isabella Shephard as son (by Alice, dau of John Roos) of John le Hunt of Stoke (a 1367, brother of Turgitus who was father of Theobald by a dau of Sir John Wake) son (by a dau of John Bellers) of Henry (a 1317 & 1346, brother of William, rector of Ashley, who married a dau of Sir John Braybrook) son (by Alice, dau of John Vessy) of Turgitus (a 1327, brother of Thomas who married a dau of Sir Humfrey Stafford) son (by Mathildis, dau/heir of John Ridol of Ramesthorpe & Ashley) of Gilbert 'the Forester' of Stoke son of Sir Theobald of Stoke son of William of Stoke son of John son of Turgitus. Earwalker shows as follows.

  m. Bertingolda (Derverguld or Baringold) Digby (dau of Sir Everard Digby of Drystock)
  A. Thomas Hunt (a 1509)
  Earwalker shows some uncertainty on the next generation, querying if Thomas's elder son was named Richard and noting that the younger son George's wife (a Studley?) was not named in a registered pedigree. George is then shown as father of John, Richard and George. However, that Richard is shown in BLG1952 ('Hunt of Boreatton') as son of Thomas of Gouldstone (the first generation mentioned). Provisionally, we show that Thomas as a younger brother of (Richard and) George but note that there is uncertainty here.
