Families covered: Pulter of Broadfield (Bradfield), Pulter of Wymondley, Forrester of Broadfield

The pedigree on this family in 'The Historical Antiquities of Hertfordshire' starts with the following few generations but appears not to connect them with the Sir Humphrey who heads the remainderof the tree. It is not clear whether we should anticipate a connection between the two parts of the tree, albeit being unsure on the number of intervening generations (of which would there could not be many), or we should accept that the connection between them has been unproved. For prudence's sake, we follow the latter course but keep the top part of the tree (in italics) for their interest value.
