Poyntz Family Genealogy Forum
I am having a problem researching the Poyntz line. Did any descendents of John Poyntz marry into his brother's line Humphrey Poyntz's line? More specifically are John and Humphrey's parents indeed Elizabeth Mill and Nicholas Poyntz birth before 1390? Because there are a lot of conflicting genealogical documents that point saying that Elizabeth and Nicholas are not this particular Humphrey's parents. Also could anyone tell me whether or not Anthony Woodville father of Margaret Woodville by Gwenlian Stradling is a relative or not and which branch? My confusion is that several sources have blended Humprey and John's descendents. The Woodville's are suppose to be off of the John Poyntz line. However, I descended from several familes tied in with Nicholas's side that are associated with John's family. As I understand it Humphrey's descendents are the Pollards, poyntz, Prideaux, Drake, etc. John's descendents include Poyntz, Cock,Woodville, Berkeley etc. Any assisstance would be greatly appreciated.
