  • Notes 
    • Or Whitbred.

      Alice Whitbread (b. ~1578) pings the gentry-detecting spider-sense of every genealogist with any experience dealing with the late Middle Ages. Many theories of Alice Whitbread's ancestry have been ventured. To us the most convincing is Don C. Stone's, reproduced in full on our entry for Alice Whitbread's mother Eleanor. If Stone's reasoning is correct, the connection through the Hervey family to the Great Medieval Cloud is trivially easy to establish.
