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.

Ord provides the following descent from Heryon to Gilbert Stapylton. We show this here as an example of how Ord's pedigrees are not fully reliable, particularly on early generations. On Stapleton01 we ignore these early generations as we view them as highly suspect, at some points as clearly erroneous.
Heryon or Heron of Stapylton-upon-Teys (a 1052)
1. Allan of Stapylton (a 1080)
  m. ?? (dau of John of Tanfield)

Edward Ward of Mendham, Suffolk
m. Amy Forthe (dau of Robert Forthe of Butley Abbey)
1. (Sir) William Ward
  Muskett identifies Anne's brother Sir William as ancestor of the Wards, Earls Dudley. That is not consistent with what we show on Ward01.

  A. Robert Highmore of Armathwayte (b c1601, a 1625)

  i. Abraham Highmore
a. Thomas Highmore of London (b 22.06.1660, d 08.03.1719-20, Serjeant Painter to King William III)
  The following comes from 'Suffolk Manorial Families' (Joseph James Muskett, 'Edited with extensive additions', vol 1, 1900, 'Burrough of Wickhambrook', p312) which reports that Thomas was Serjeant-Painter to Queen Anne & King George I as well as to King William III and had the following family.

  Visitation (Dorset, 1677, Appendix II, 'Borough of Newland and Castleton', p94) mentions that Dr. Nathaniel Highmore, who was probably the following Nathaniel, was son of Nathaniel, Rector of Purse Caundle. It also notes that "They were descended from the Highmore of Harbybrow, co. Cumberland, who bore "Argent, a cross-bow pointed upwards between 4 moor-cocks sable, membered and beaked gules".
