Thanks for the article, I am researching this family.

Is it not possible that BOTH Adam de Reresbys you mention (espeically in 'Family notes') were one-and-the-same person?

From what I can tell, Adam (or Sir Adam, as much suggests that he was a knight) seemed to fall in and out of favour with the King?
