    Notes:

    From Wikipedia: "[E]arlier sources identify Corbet's wife as Margaret Mallory, daughter of William Mallory, whom Corbet associates with a landowner prominent in Rutland and Cambridgeshire. It now seems that Corbet's identification of William was correct, but he was actually Margaret's second husband. Hence, she became Margaret Mallory only on remarriage, after Corbet's death. Her original name is not given." Note that the eighth edition of Ancestral Roots still gives this false identification.

    Notes:

    Kay Allen cautions, in a 1999 post to SGM, that "[t]he Knightley line behind William de Knightley is totally unknown. He is said to be of the line of Fawsley, Northamptonshire. Fawsley was not acquired until 1416 and William had been dead since before 1403. If he had lived as late as 1459, he would have held Apley by the courtesy of England, which is the widower's equivalent of dower when the wife was an heiress, which he did not. He could be either of the Knightley line or of the Gnosall line."
