    (b) In his collections for Suffolk genealogies, Sir Simonds d'Ewes says that Robert de Ufford was, "uti colligo", 2nd son of John de Peyton, son of Nigel, who lived in the reign of Henry I; but there is no evidence among the charters which he there transcribes from the documents then (Dec. 1631) penes Sir Edward Peyton, Knight and Barinet, at Isleham, Cambs, and no evidence has been traced elsewhere; nor is the chronology easily reconcilable with the known facts.
