John Mulsho of Godington, Buckinghamshire (a 1348, 1366)
m. Emma
1. John Mulsho (d 1399-1400)
  A. John Mulsho (d 1412-3)
  i. John Mulsho of Thingdon, Northamptonshire (a 1432)
  a. William Mulsho (a 1442)
The above comes from Visitation (Buckinghamshire). We view it with some suspicion not least because VCH (identified below) reports that Finedon (spelt variously including Fynedon, Thingdon, Thingden, Thineden) was bought by a John Mulsho sometime 1400-1405 and that John was succeeded by his son John (d 1478) and he by his son John (d 1536). It may be that this William is the only errant generation. Visitation (Northamptonshire) starts with ...
