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.

VCH reports that Adam was succeeded by his brother Matthew and that, after Matthew, the "next in possession was William de Bold. His parentage is not stated." VCH shows that William d by 1278 as father of Robert, Henry & Roger. Dugdale shows such a William as descended from Adam apparently this Adam. We assume that Adam's brother Matthew succeeded as trustee for Adam's young son, shown by Dugdale as ...

Bo22. Sir Richard de Bold of Bold d c1390 - continued above
Richard is one of the figures we have focused on for the purposes of pulling together this pedigree from the different sources used not the easiest of exercises given the differences between the sources. The above section is based on VCH & Dugdale's Visitation. Commoners identifies Sir Richard as great-great-grandson of Matthew a temp Henry II who r. 1216-1272 grandson of William. The Cheshire Visitation shows Richard as son of Sir Richard son of Richard son of Peter son of Robert son of Mathew son of Robert son of William. The next generation is also a bit confusing. Dugdale shows 6 sons: Sir John, Thomas, Richard, William, Henry & Robert. Commoners shows 3: John, Baldwin of Upton & John 2nd. VCH shows Sir John, William, Henry & Robert. The Cheshire Visitation shows 3 sons: Richard father of Sir John, Baldwin & John. In essence we follow Dugdale but add Baldwin as another son, though it may be that he was grandson rather than son of Sir Richard and so may have been son of one of Sir Richard's younger sons.

The Cheshire Visitation supported by Commoners shows another son, John, as father of the following Geffery but we suspect that Geffery may have been son or grandson of one of the above-mentioned.
A. Geffery Bold
i. Nicholas Bold 'of Coddington'
a. Agnes Bold heir
Commoners identifies Agnes's husband as Hugh, son of Hugh Massey of Tatton. The Cheshire Visitation identifies him as Hugh, 3rd brother of Geffery Massy of Tatton. The Massey genealogy around this time is not clear. It appears that Agnes was heiress of Coddington and married ...
m Hugh Massey, later of of Coddington
