Correction to Charts 1 and 2 (Lines of descent from Edward I pp. 151-154):  Maud Grey (WikiTree# Grey-71) was the daughter of Sir Thomas Grey (WikiTree#Grey-267) and Genet Mobray (WikiTree#Mobray-102) not the daughter of Alice (Neville) Widdrington (WikiTree#Neville-968) and Sir Thomas Grey (WikiTree#Grey-290)who was Maud Grey’s brother, not father.  Thus all descents from Alice Grey in these charts (1&2) are erroneous. There are alternative direct lines to Edward I (WikiTree#Plantagenet-2) and William the Conqueror (WikiTree# Normandie-32) for descendants of Peter Lanman I (WikiTree#Lanman-70).   Faulty charts were based on:

Frederick L. Weis’s Ancestral Roots, 1964 reprint, 1964 corrections by Walter L Sheppard, Jr.
                G.E. Cokaune, The Complete Peerage, Revised Edition, 1910-1959.
                Burke’s Peerage, 103rd Edition, 1963

“Authorities” are not necessarily good sources!

Neville! ... and Maud Grey? ... How in heck did that happen? I'm guessing it was an accidental typo, because that one is unheard of in the family.
