Families covered: Perient (Peryent) of Digswell (Digonswell), Perient of Birch Magna

Visitation uses the spelling Peryent throughout its pedigree but the Harleian editor entitled the entry using "Perient". We mainly use "Perient" as that seems to be the most common version in cross-references from elsewhere in the database.
