This genealogy is not intended to be comprehensive.  (Previously omitted branches may nonetheless be added in response to expressions of interest.)    Therefore the generation indicator mark (e.g.  (A), (i)  or whatever) does not necessarily indicate the chronological position of a child's birth date in relation to those of siblings. Sources include "Glympton, the history of an Oxfordshire Manor" by Canon Herbert Barnett 1851 - 1937.
