We have just one connection between the following Aldous family and the rest of the database, Elizabeth who married Matthew Arnold, the 2 sources we refer to below disagree as to her ancestry. Because BLG1952 starts at an earlier date than Muskett's work, and was published some 52 years later, we assume that its pedigree was produced after further research and so give it precedence. However, we show this as a DRAFT page pending further research or input.
