BLG1952 identifies Sir Gerard as ancestor by his first marriage "of the Salvins of Herswell, and the Salvins of Croxdale" and by his second marriage "of the Salvins of Newbiggin" but, for the next generation, mentions Sir Gerard of Herswell whose 4th son Gerard m. Agnes of Croxdale. Commoners names his children as John, Robert & Richard + Gerard, showing John (dvp) as father of Sir Gerard of Herswell whose 4th son Gerard m. Agnes of Croxdale, thereby inserting another generation. Provisionally we follow BLG1952 in leaving out John (dvp).
