We would have released this page 'properly' into the database when it was first produced on 13.01.16 but we set it then to be DRAFT as we had been advised (by KB, 12.01.16) that recent research disputes some of the content of the book that is our Main Source for the family. We had hoped to find out more on this but have not been able to do so and now accept that there is little chance of our making a significant improvement to this page in the nearish future. We have promoted the page into the main database as we view it to be 'good enough' subject to our normal caveat that, with the exception of figures of historical importance who are known to have been well researched, you view ALL generations before (say) the 13th century with some caution.
