Families covered: Pell of Dembleby, Pell of (Walter) Willoughby

We originally thought that Maddison's work in 1903-6 on the Lincolnshire Visitations covered all of the Visitations. Thanks to a contributor (CV, 22.05.13) for drawing our attention to Metcalfe's work in 1881-2 on the 1562-4 & 1592 Visitatons. It seems that Maddison considered the 1562-4 Visitation but omitted to (or decided not to) include the 1592 work on this family which took the pedigree of this family back a few generations.

We presume that the lines were drawn wrongly and that she should be identified as ...
