It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Gernon: Gernon of Merdley, Cavendish of Stratton, Gamage of Coity Castle, Gamage of Ragland, Gamage of Rogaid
Ge30 Robert de Gernon of Merdley, etc a 1066
Space for your banner!
Robert, who came to England at the time of the Conquest from the Gernon-Montfichet region in Normandy, is sometimes identified as father of William de Montfichet but this seems unlikely as such a possible connection is not mentioned by Collins. Perhaps there were 2 different people called Robert who came to England from the same region at about the same time. They may have been related. This Robert obtained lands in Herefordshire whereas William de Montfichet obtained whether by inheritance, possibly from a father called Robert, or otherwise is not known Stanstead in Essex.

Collins is not fully clear here. The article confirms that Roger was ancestor of the undermentioned Sir Richard Cavendish. The following appears to be the descent.
a ?? Cavendish of Stratton probably an intervening generation
1 Augustine Cavendish
A Richard or John Cavendish
BE1883 Brandon indicates that Elizabeth's husband was called John but Collins identifies him as Richard.

A+ issue - William, Augustine, Thomas d c1692, navigator, Mary, Margaret, Anne
We presume that the above is the Sir Richard Cavendish of Trimley reported by BEB1841 Felton of Playford to have been father of the following Mary "by a daughter of Sir William Brandon".
