This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

(1) On VZmisc01 we have some members of a branch of the family of Valoines that moved to Scotland. We suspect that there may be a connection between that family and this family but have yet to identify it.
(2) Collins (1741, vol 3, Wallop, Viscount Lymington) mentions that this family descended from the following Peter "who was in such Favour with William the Conqueror, that he is mentioned in Domesday Book, to be possessed of twelve Lordships in Essex, in Cambridgeshire one, in Lincolnshire one, in Hertfortshire (sic) seventeen, in Norfolk twenty, and in Suffolk six; in which County his Descendants had their chief Residence, making the Castle of Orford the Head or Capital Seat of their Barony".

The following is supported by TCP (Thorpe (of Norfolk) & TCP (Ufford) except that they identify Sir Robert (m. Eve) as grandson of the following John without naming the intermediary generation.
