Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

St. Leger 1: St. Leger of Doneraile Downerayle, St. Leger of Grangemellan, St. Leger in Munster, St. Leger of Park Hill, St. Leger of Ulcombe
The first version of this upper section was developed from data taken from various web sites. It has been replaced by what is reported by BHO but, rather than lose sight of what some sites report for these early generations, we note that some have it that the early generations went as follows: Robert Sancto Leodegario or de St. Leger a 1066 father of Hugh father of Ralph father of John father of Ralph father of Ralph father of Bartholomew father by Anabilla of Ralph d before 1359 father by Joan, m 1331 of Arnold father by Joan of Arnold father of the Sir John who married Margery Donet spelt Dannet by the Visitation.
Sir Robert de St. Leger, later of Ulcomb Kent a 1066, "attended William, duke of Normandy, into England"

Visitation shows two sons both called William, the apparent elder being married to Ursula Nevell and the other being married to Isabell Keys. We follow BP1934 which shows 2 sons as follows. However, it shiould be noted that BHO reports that the eldest son was Waham who was 'of Ulcomb' and that it was his eldest son Sir William who was Lord President of Munster. That would appear to make the following William out of place. This is to be investigated further in due course.

2 Sir Warham St. Leger ancestor of later St. Legers of Ulcombe
See the note above. It is a presumption that the following marriage and children, identified by Visitation as the family of the William who did not marry Isabell Keys, should be attributed to Sir Warham. BP1934 merely reports that his ancestors continued at Ulcombe. A good-looking web site 'confirms' the marriage but the connection has yet to be fully confirmed.
