Perhaps too cynically, we view the upper section of this page as a bit 'dodgy' (but are prepared to reconsider that view should we find an independent source to support it). As reported in the large note below, the connection with the lower section is certainly 'dodgy'. We make the connection not least to preserve the data shown in Visitation (Wiltshire) for these early generations.
Sir William Gunter of Gunters Town (a temp William Rufus who r. 1087-1100)
1. William Gunter of Gunter in Wales
  A. William Gunter of Gunters Town
  m. Margaret Pichard (dau of Sir Milo Pichard)
  i. Phillpp Gunter
  a. William Gunter
  m. Elianora Walberfe (dau of William Walberfe)
  (1) Wilcock Gunter
  m. Lucy (dau of Mored ap Mady Havard)
  (A) Oliver Gunter
  (i) Lewes Gunter
  (a) William Gunter
  ((1)) Watkin Gunter
  ((A)) Jacob Gunter
  ((i)) Robert Gunter of Abergenie
  m. Maria (dau of Richard Loyd)
  ((2)) Lewis Gunter
  (ii) Thomas Gunter
  (a) Philip Gunter
Visitation (Wiltshire) shows that Phillip had 3 sons, William plus Henry and another (unnamed), the last 2 being connected by dotted lines which normally signifies either uncertainty or illegitimacy. The unnamed son is shown as father of (William &) Henry, father of the John of Kinberie who m. _ Foller. Visitation (Berkshire, 1623, Gunter of Kintbury) shows that John as son of Henry son of Roger son of John of Inkpen. We combine these, which effectively inserts an additional generation into what is shown by Visitation (Wiltshire), but note that there is little foundation for this other than a wish to preserve the information on the earlier generations. As implied above, we suggest that this whole upper section be viewed as not to be relied on.
