Note of caution

This profile is currently connected to what the great genealogist J H Round called the "The Carington Imposture", a famous fraudulent pedigree. See his Peerage and Pedigrees Vol. II, starting at page 134. At least some of the people in that pedigree never existed and others are represented inaccurately.

If this is a real person then it will be important to get the evidence together and then start prying the real person away from the fraudulent part, which should of course be separated from all real people.
