    Re Melton pedigrees: There are some differences between Walker's Yorkshire Pedigrees (1942, Melton of Swine and Kilham (Killome)) and the Visitation (Yorkshire, 1563-4, Melton), we presume, some confusion & duplication between generations, certainly in the latter and probably (for the first generation or two) also in the former.
    Visitation starts with Sir Henry father of Sir William father of Sir William (m. Jane Lucy) father or Sir John (m. Margaret Clifford) father of Sir John (m. Elizabeth Hylton) father of John (m. Margaret Fitzhugh). father of Sir John (m1. Ales Stanley, m2. Elenor St. John). We follow Walker which starts with ... Sir John Melton (a 1331).
    Walker shows this Sir John as married to Elizabeth Hilton, heiress of Swine & Killome (dau/coheir of Sir Robert Hilton). This appears to be a confusion/duplication with the Sir John who married an Elizabeth Hilton 100+ years later.
