Hi! Just wanted to let you know that the Magna Carta Project has identified this profile as being in the trail from Gateway Ancestor Fisher to Hugh Bigod and Roger Bigod, Magna Carta surety barons. I will be editing several profiles in that trail, including this one. If you're interested in getting involved or following the progress of Magna Carta trails, you can do so at the Magna Carta Base Camp. If you have any questions, please check out the project page or message me. Thanks, Liz
