  Walker reports that Geoffrey's will was dated 23.05.1426, provde 20.06.1426. This must surely be wrong; probably 1426 should read 1462 or later.

  The above comes from Walker's 'Yorkshire Pedigrees'. BEB1841, which starts with Edward, father of the 1st Baronet, confirms that he descended from the John who "coming from Leventhorpe Hall, in Yorkshire, settled in the county of Hertford and represented that shire in parliament". www.british-history.ac.uk, in its article on the Parish of Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, starts with John (d 1433, MP) and reports the descent to the first baronet as that John then John (d 1484, MP), Thomas (b c1424, d 1493), John (d 1511, Sheriff), Thomas (d 1527), Edward (d 1551), Edward (d 1566) then Sir John, 1st Bart.
