1. Sir Edmond (or Henry) Apleby (a 1268)
A. Sir William Apleby
  i. Sir John Apleby (a 1330, 1353)
  a. Sir Edmond Apleby
  We speculate that this was the Sir Edmund Appleby (a c1350) who is shown by Visitation (Derbyshire, 1569+1611, 'Longford of Longford') as father of Margaret & Alice by ...
m. Agnes Solney (dau of Sir Alured Solney, sister/coheir of Sir John) mother of Margaret & Alice, possibly also of ...

  m. (Margaret) Salvein (dau of George Salvein of Croxdell)
  (1) Margaret Appleby (d 1672)
  Dugdale shows daughters of this generation as Mary & Margaret (d young). The online copy we have seen of Surtees's work is not clear exactly how the Margaret who married Thomas Maire connected to this family, although it does clearly identify her as "dau. and sole heir, of Fran(cis)" so we presume that she was the Margaret mentioned by Dugdale.

The section was reviewed on 17.03.22 with 'History and Antiquities' providing more information than was shown before on the younger children of the earlier generations but only one date, for the Edmund who died in 1698.
