Re: Robert de Vere, do you have links for the sources in Cokayne and Weiss for the christening date?
I live far from a library that would have them. That's why I purchased Richardson's Magna Carta Ancestry (2011, 4 vol) and Royal Ancestry (2013, 5 vol). He quotes CP and original charters, feet of fines and other primary documents. (He quotes Weiss in other bios, but not Robert's.)
He mentions christening in other profiles so I don't know why he would leave it out of this one? His sources run to half a page of size 8 type...
Please let me know what you think. Thanks, April
