Name: Walter GIFFARD , Lord of Boyton 1 2
Birth: ABT 1152 in Boyton, Warminster, Wiltshire, England
The following is excerpted from a post to SGM, 2 Jun 2002, by Ivor West:
The Boyton line and the Brimsfield line of John Giffard, 1231 - 1299, come together at the common ancestor, Elias II of Brimsfield. Elias III and Walter of Boyton, father of Hugh, were brothers. This makes John Giffard of Brimsfield second cousin to bishop Godfrey of Boyton and to Willam, the suggested father of Margaret. Because of the longer generations in the Brimsfield line, John and Margaret would seem to be related as alleged, in the third and fourth degrees ( John - Elias IV - Elias III - Elias II ), ( Margaret - William - Hugh - Walter - Elias II ).
