    Hi! I changed Jane from the Gateway Ancestors category to the Questionable category, since the WikiTree connections to Magna Carta surety barons were lost when the incorrect parents of her grandfather John were disconnected (see this G2G post). Richardson shows Thomas' parents as John and Elizabeth (Bull) Lawrence. She has royal ancestors, but no MCSBs as lineal ancestors that I can find. Richardson does not name John's parents. Cheers, Liz
