Verified this profile as being on a project-approved trail (from Corbin-100 to Ros-162, following "Magna Carta badged" profiles to that surety baron). The project account for the Magna Carta Project will be added as a manager later this month to meet WikiTree guidelines (see Help:Project-Managed_Profiles). Give me a holler if you have any questions. ~ Liz, Magna Carta project member

Christopher and Elizabeth are NOT recognized as brother or sister of Robert Conyers, or as children of John Conyers and Elizabeth Aton, by Douglas Richardson. Marlyn Lewis claims a sister of Robert Conyers named Elizabeth, Elizabeth Conyers, but the sources are private and not universally recognized for her marriages, parents, etc.

Dorothy is NOT recognized as a daughter of Robert Conyers and Isabel Pert by Richardson.
