Families covered: Wiseman of Canfield

The following Wisemans of Canfield are understood to have been a junior banch of the family that led to the Wisemans of Rivenhall. However, the exact connection has yet to be confirmed and so, as the pedigree of this branch appears to go further back than that of the Rivenhall branch, we show this Canfield branch on this page and the Rivenhall branch on Wiseman02.
