Links to sources are shown at the bottom of each page, with symbols in red [sb1] throughout the text referring to these sources.

Some of these family line surnames are arbitrarily given by me, as people had no surnames as such, much before about the year 1200. Most are based on geographic location but some are merely the name of the original male of the line. Occasionally I have used the name of someone famous in the line.

These family lines flow from past to present. One branch or male family line leads to another as the name changes through the marriage of a daughter.

For example, you will be directed by links from the Dyer line, through Card, then Wilcox, to Saunders and then to Barbé to get to our grandchildren.

A sample from the top of the Normandy page, which starts in the third century in the Svegdi Line and leads from early Norwegian Kings through William the Conqueror is shown below.

Lineage = Svegdi -> Normandy -> Meschin -> Mainwaring -> Audley -> Stafford -> Ferrers ->
Greene -> Dyer -> Card -> Wilcox -> Saunders -> Barbé
