  Identified as possibly "brother to Thomas and Reginald West, Barons West" was the following John. However, the date 1325 is noted alongside the identification of his wife. It is not clear whether that date indicated that his wife was living in 1325, in which case perhaps Ralph was a generation earlier than shown, or her father (in which case he may well have been of this generation - though it seems still uncertain as to whether or not he was of this family). Their son John is shown as "living 1380".
  c. John West of Aughton
  m. Ann Aughton (dau/heir of Ralph Aughton alias Personson)
