I have been asked to post a pedigree of Valletort. What follows is derived from a series of articles in Devon and Cornwall Notes and Queries. I accept neither the credit nor the blame for the majority of it.
D&CN&Q 19:320-2; 20:146-153 (or perh 144-151, I accidentally punched out the page numbers); 20:247-54; 20:289-94; 20:330; 20:354-61.
The exception is with the Tremeton line, which was first published in Transactions of the Devonshire Association, 67:253-84 (on the Hundred of Harberton). I have not seen this, and the authors in the D&CN&Q articles present confusing and contradictory versions, due it would seem to error rather than correction. I have reconstructed it from what is provided in the D&CN&Q articles, and from memory.
I am particularly interested in the North Tawton line, and would welcome any information regarding the wives of this line, and their ancestry.
