(Ms eng misc D 600)
I have looked briefly at this pedigree. It provides a link between the Leicestershire and Northamptonshire families, but is erroneous. The generations later than Robert, son of Ralph Woodford of Ashby Folville are incorrect. However, a further detailed analysis could offer clues to the correct descent.
