(1) The following familiy is probably not connected (closely) to the above family but their coat of arms indicates that it may possibly be connected to the family on Buxton03. We show these families on the same page simply for our convenience.
(2) FMG (MS409) shows 3 sections for Buxton, We have combined the 2nd & 3rd together but are not clear how the 1st fits with them and so show that separately.
