|DE DIGBY DE TILTON, Everhard (Esquire )
Another name for Everhard was DE DIGBY DE TILTON, Everard.4
This name comes from the early Digby lineage originally written on what is a hide (vellum) available in the Castle of Dublin and photocopied by the Mormon Church. It is VERY difficult reading and we could easily have errors in deciphering it. Instead of Esquire as I read it, Annie Coppock Kransdorf believes it to say Everard de Digby de Tilton. (E) Burke's "Geneological and Heraldic History of Great Britain, V. 4" confirms that his name in total is Esquire Everard de Digby de Tilton. This original cowhide genealogy looks like it was written in the 1500's or so. The most recent persons in the lineage lived in the 1500's. I saw it on microfilm from the Mormon church that photographed in the Castle in Dublin, Ireland in 1959. I thought it might be the 1623 genealogy done by Kenelm Digby, but after comparison of it's information, I do not believe it's one and the same. There are more generations to the earliest lines and some of the wive's first names simply do not match that 1623 version. I am therefore listing the genealogy the way this oldest 1500's source has it listed to allow others a comparison. To me, it would also match better in time to Alemar receiving land from William the Conqueror.
Everhard married Amicia BRETTON. (Amicia BRETTON was born of Nottinghamshire, ENG.)
Everhard next married.
