Richard de Burtone
1. either Henry or Thomas Burton
  BEB1841 names the ancestor of this generation as Henry and his son as Nicholas. Visitation names them Thomas (a temp Henry III who r. 1216-1272) and William (a 1375). Visitation suggests that the Sir William of the generation after, shown by BEB1841 as having died in 49Edw3 (1375-6), was still alive in 1377. We ignore the Visitation dates for these generations other than to add that Visitation suggests that the above Richard was alive in 1194.
  A. either Nicholas of Tolethorp (a 1316) or Sir William Burton
