My line of Bridger in England can be traced to Walter and Henry Le Brigere in 14th century, a connection to Sir John and Sir William II Barons le Franceis of Formark  of the 13th century and John or William of Osmondeston Le Brigere. of the early 13th century. I would appreciate any assistance. Thank You!

Hi. I think the ancestry of Walter le Brigere is not correct on the genealogyonline webpage. The seven male Bridger descendants in line from 1327 to 1550 all lived in Godalming, Surrey, UK where the name originated with one Johannes le Brugger (1250) who had a wharf in Godalming for importing goods from the low countries. The supposed link to a Baron of Derbyshire makes no sense.

I should add that there is a John le Brigere born in 1224, to Robert d'Abrincis (Baron of Horsley) and Mabel d'Abrincis in Derbyshire. How he is now listed as le Brigere is not known.

Genealogyonline says Walter le Brigere's parents were the John Baron le Franceis and Lady Margaret nee Solice. However, myheritage.com says their son was William le Franceis and not Walter's parents. There is an error that eeds sorting.
