genealogical chart following p 260.
(pp. 175, 177-178): ". . . all that can be said of his father John
'Monoculus' is that he was not an important member of the baronage. A
measure of his respectability -- or rather acceptability in the eyes of
the rest of his contemporaries -- is to be found in the marrige of his
sons, Payn, a younger son, married the Lacy heiress. Eustace fitz John,
Payn's eldest brother, married Beatrice, the Vesci heiress, and thus
inherited through her the honours of Alnwick and Malton. . . .the sons of
John 'Monoculus' were of sufficient standing to be acceptable husbands
for the daughters of major barons.
. Burke's _Ext. & Dorm. Peerages_ ('BED') under ('Clavering') 121,
identifies this John 'Monoculus' de Burgh as nephew & h. of Serlo de Burgh,
& grandson of Eustace de Burgh. I do not regard this source very highly,
however for so early a pedigree."
Pat Burke after years of research makes these comments in reference to
information he found in a manuscript in the Dublin Museum:
. "The point of all this, was the confusion created by many historians on
the subject of Herluin (Harlowen's) children who accompanied William the
Conqueror to England. A great many listed his nephews, Serlo (Charles) and
John (Monoculous) as sons, saying that they were all brothers, therfore
half-brothers of William!!"
