  A. William del Croslegh (a 1411)
  BLG1886 identifies William as ancestor of Anthony of Skatecliff (shown below as d 1624) and jumps to that Anthony.
  i. Thomas del Croslegh (a 1411)
  a. Richard del Croslegh (a 1411)
Commoners identifies Richard as progenitor of Richard of Cartecliff (grandfather of Anthony) and jumps to that Richard. Foster shows this Richard as father of that Richard. We follow Commoners in presuming that there was at least one intervening generation between them. Provisionally, we presume to show 2 intervening generations.

  Susanna is mentioned in a note to BLG1846-7 ('Seymour of Castletown'), being identified as "the other dau. and co-heir of Aaron Crossley", with her husband being identified as Chetwood Eustace "who succeeded to the dignity of Lord Portlester, of Harristown" and was succeeded "in the barony of Portlester" by his son William. That would imply that he was of the family shown on Eustace01. However, TCP ('Portlester') reports that the original Lord Portlester dspml in 1496 "when the Barony became extinct" and that his heir male was Thomas, 1st Viscount Baltinglass.
