Notes to the Original:

[1] Vis. 1569, p.88.
[2] Staffs Ped., p.5.

Editor's Notes:
[1]  Tristram, VII above, was identified in the pedigree as VI (so there were two VIs).
[2]  In families with both boys and girls, they are sequenced separately. It took me a while to work that one out!
[3]  "com Ebor" - the county of York - Eboracum was the Romans' name for the town of York, so this would be Cudworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire, not in Somerset.
[4]  Jayne (the contributor) hopes one of the two Robert's in this pedigree is hers. She is anxious to find out who her Robert's father was, and whilst she's been told it was Lawrence, she has no proof.
