Giffard 2: Giffard of Black Ladies, Giffard Gifford of Chillington, Gifford of Water Eyton
The following ancestry for the John Giffard who died in 1400, with the initial Gilbert being shown as younger son of Helias II Giffard, 2nd cousin of the Walter a 1166 we show as John's ancestor. While overlaps with what was shown by Commoners are possible. BLG1952 makes the following guestimate seem best for the early generations shown by Commoners in italics as follows.

BLG1952 shows Sir Thomas as son of Elizabeth.
