|Barsara or Letitia DALBY
Another name for Barsara was Balawa.3
Her first name though unreadable in the original Digby Family Lineage does not look like Letitia as given in Joseph's work. It looks more like Barsara or Bawlawa. I am interpreting what looks like a small L as a s and what looks like a w as an r from a later clear version of Robert de Digby in the manuscript using the same letters. Her surname could be Dalby in the 1500 or 1600's manuscript that I tried to read from a microfilm ordered through the Mormon Church though the first letter is also hard to decifer. (C-2267) I have since confirmed that her name was Dalby in Burke's book and in Joseph Digby's work. However, both of those state that her first name is Letitia and it certainly is not in the 1500/1600's scroll/chart. 4
Barsara married Esquire William DE DIGBY, son of Esquire Everhard DE DIGBY DE TILTON and Amicia BRETTON.

It looks like it could have been done as early as the 1500's though it could be the 1634 research hired by Kenelm Digby that is the main source of much of the early Digby lineage.).
