Families covered: Povey of Shocklach (Shoklache), Povey of Woodseaves

Visitation shows 3 sections for 'Povey of Shocklach', the first two sharing an 'article' under one heading, with no clear connection between them. We presume to show possible connections between them below, presuming that the David of Shoklache who is the first person shown by the first section was descended from the following David who is the first person shown by the third section.
