Is there a reason not to add a sourced father for Thomas St Barbe? He is protected.

Visitation of Somerset gives his father as [[St_Barbe-32| Richard St Barbe]] but it's not much of a source. Is there a reason not to add him? Should the LNAB be changed to St Barbe? Further to this, please, how do I copy a link into this question. I know others do it, but I cannot see how.

According to Berry

the family pedigree was drawn up in the reign of Elizabeth and goes back to a Conquering Hero.  Not good signs generally.  That 1302 date throws it all out.

But clearly it was the Longland marriage that put the family on the map.  I'd ignore everything above that, but it could be sound from then on.

10 vols of VCH Somerset are online, but apparently it's not complete and Ashington isn't done.

This old book

https://archive.org/details/historyantiqutit03colluoft/page/213

seems well-informed on the descent of Ashington.  It agrees with Richard, but calls his mother Mary not Margaret.  Looks like Richard inherited from a 2nd cousin.

And the old book calls Mary's father Sir Humphrey not Sir Hugh.

Gerard of Trent has the same names as the family pedigree, but that's probably where he got them from. 

He does have another source though, because he says Margaret de Furneaux's father was Matthew, and she was Longland's 2nd wife.
