  • Notes 
    • "This William was s. and h. of John, s. and h. of Humphrey Franc Chevaler, who in 1220 was alleged, by Ralph and Olimpia, to have held temp. Henry II 5 hides in Imber, Wilts, which were the right of Olimpia as Humphrey's heir (Idem, vol. ix, p. 341). In the time of Abbot Thomas Carbonel (1179-1205) Wymark, widow of John Franc Chevaler, gave lands to St. Peter's Abbey, Gloucester, for the souls of her husband and her s. William, with the consent of her s. Robert and of Olimpia, da. of her s. William. This gift was confirmed by Ralph de Wilington and his wife Olimpia." [Complete Peerage]
