William de Latimer (a 1190)
BE1883 commences with William who was involved in litigation in 1190 then says that he was succeeded by William, 1st Lord. TCP (Latimer of Corby) starts with the following William as father of the 1st Lord. Because the dates lead us to suspect that the above William was different from the next William and because we suspect that BE1883 has confused the next William (which it does not report) with the 1st Lord (which it descrbes as Sheriff of Yorkshire although TCP shows that position as held by his father and not by him) we show them as successive generations. Some may prefer to follow TCP and simply start with ...
1. William de Latimer of Scampston, Sheriff of Yorkshire (d before 22.11.1268)
  A. William de Latimer of Corby and Danby, 1st Lord (d 05.12.1304)

  BE1883 reports that William, 3rd Lord, was by William's second wife but TCP specifically confirms that he was by his first.

  BE1883 identifies his wife as Elizabeth FitzAlan (dau of Richard FitzAlan, Earl of Arundel - presumably 9th Earl). TCP confirms her name as Elizabeh and suggests that she may possibly have been daughter of Edmund, Earl of Arundel (8th Earl). We follow that suggestion.
