Hello again Katherine

I have just spotted the Maud Beaumont name. A little earlier than your reference, but our Gillaume de Cailly married Maude Beaumont about 1060. One of two recorded marriages with the Beaumonts in the early period. The other Philip de Caillouet with Hawisa, daughter of Robert de Beaumont, 2nd Earl of Leicester, around 1140-45. Before she married the Earl of Gloucester.

You will know about the Beaumonts. The Cailly/Caillouet family was related to the Norman House. And appeared to be kinsmen of the Beaumonts at that time.

I will be pleased to share information there.

Date of birth is around 1390, not 1356, must be a typo???

Her birth year must be wrong; currently she was born before her parents.

Beaumont-262 and De Beaumont-284 are not ready to be merged because: wrong parent's shown for her per the FMG
Beaumont-255 and Beaumont-254 appear to represent the same person because: These are the same lady :)
