Wherever possible, original documents (parish registers, inquisitions post mortems, abstracts of title, etc.) have been used to support the tree.

Inevitably, however, we have had to supplement this research by drawing on printed and online sources, and, although we believe the information contained in our charts to be correct, no responsibility can be accepted for its accuracy.

The early ancestral lines leading back to the Monarchs of England and Scotland have drawn upon published sources. No single source has been relied upon and in most cases 3 separate references have been cross-checked and used.
