Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

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

Vere 3: Vere of Great Addington, Vere of Drayton, Vere of Thrapston
Robert de Vere of Great Addington and Drayton a 1166, 1176
TCP vol X, appendix J reports that Robert married twice, the name of the first wife mother of Henry & William being unknown but that of the second wife being given as Margaret, dau of Baldwin FitzGilbert. But VCH shows as below:
The IGI appears to be one of several web sites which have followed the lead of BE1883 Vere of Oxford which suggests that the first Vere of Great Addington was Sir Henry, 2nd son of Robert, 3rd Earl of Oxford. BE1883 goes on to report that that Sir Henry was father of Sir Robert, father of Richard who married Isabel, dau/heiress of Richard Greene of Drayton. However, that appears to be missing out several generations possibly because it reported the gap in the wrong place, suggesting that there were some generations between the Richard who married Isabel Greene and the Sir Henry who married Isabel Tresham rather than between Sir Robert and Richard. We follow TCP & VCH.
