Missing generation

Hi

I've been trying to add sources to profiles in Northamptonshire and I'm stuck! Reginald Conyers (Conyers-50) 1501-1560 was born in Northamptonshire and he was reputedly the son of John Conyers (Conyers-42) who died 26 Jul 1469 in Oxford and Alice Neville Conyers (Neville-140) who died in 1490 in Yorkshire.

Obviously this doesn't make sense so I'm wondering if there is a missing generation. So far, I haven't been able to find out anything so wondered if anyone here knows something.

Best wishes

Sue

I think Reginald's dates are confused with his grandson Reginald.

According to this old book, Reginald died in 1514

Says Reginald was the uncle of the 1st Baron Conyers, which would actually place him a generation earlier.

The 1st John Conyers survived his son and died 1489/90, but his wife seems unlikely to have had kids much after 1460.  The Yorkshire pedigrees don't give either John a son called Reginald, so we only seem to have Nichols for this..

Browning gave a garbled version

Thanks, that's really appreciated.
