This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

The following tree is compiled using Collectanea topographica et genealogica 1836, J. S. Bothwell Fourteenth Century England, John Burke's–A General and Heraldic Dictionary of the Peerages of England, Ireland, and Scotland, Extinct, Dormant, and in Abeyance (Google eBook). Рипол Классик, and The Strife of the Roses and Days of the Tudors in the West as sources to connect to these Wikitree profiles. Please do not remove, using this tree to help merge the duplicates on Wikitree. amb

*** For further research on family members: Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 11: Summary
Volume 11, page 103 (as corrected in volume 14):

Eleanor, the mother of his wife, Margaret, was the daughter and coheir of John Mautravers (d. 1348/9), son and heir apparent of John, Lord Mautravers (d. 1363/4).

Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 11: Ros
