The Elias who was the father of Matilda Scudamore was the one who married (1) Isabel Musard [3 daus. Mabel Dauntsey, Isabel Tabler, Matilda Scudamore], (2) Alice Maltravers [son John +1299]

see [1] pp 10-15

Matilda needs to be detached and merged with Giffard-473, husband likewise,

Thanks. That's why I think this may be the wrong generation. . . Note it says she was the daughter of John, not Elias. Hard to believe she lived to be 100 years old. We need to research more. The tree looks like it has several issues. There's another Maud Giffard and Godfrey Scudamore: see Giffard-473 and D'_Escudamore-2 . No time right now, unless you have time and want to perhaps post on G2G and we can get others to work on it? I appreciate the help!

Gary, I haven't researched this profile. I'm only PM on it due to merging it several years ago. From looking at it, it doesn't appear this Matilda Giffard married Godfrey Scudamore (father of Petronilla).
