  • Notes 
    • from "GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH IN ENGLAND", NEHGS Register, v. 92, p. 287
      "These charters compel us to place the birth of Simon Fiske who die d i n
      1463/4 and the births of his sons William and Geoffrey somewhat earlier
      than
      they appear in the pedigree set forth in the REGISTER, vol. 87, p. 368.
      These
      two latter men must both have been born prior to 1429 and about 1420 -
      1425,
      while their father must have been born about 1400. His father Hugh was,
      therefore, born about 1370 and is probably the son or grandson of the
      Hugh who
      appears in Laxfield in 1340 and 1345.

      from NEHGS Register, Oct. 1932, p. 409-410
