I was originally looking at the Driby/Tateshall/Mallory genealogy in the first genealogy for which there seem to be differences, but there are major problems much earlier in all three genealogies.

Robert Broughton (no. 3-4) has no sources at all, and even Mary Humphreys formerly Maxey, who is the starting point for all of these doesn't have sources that are considered reliable.

It emphasises just how many dubious connections/genealogies in the pre-1700 to -pre-1500 period still remain on WikiTree that need to be thoroughly investigated for accuracy.

I left out many of the Bigod's I found on Geni.com out because they fit between the others or they were knights. Really we are all related and it makes me wonder why people do not act better towards each other. smiley

Robert Bigod "the Chamberlain" to William the conquer is my 27th great grandfather. 1015-1071

*** Roger Le Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk, Surety of the Magna Carta is your 25th great grandfather.  1140-1221
