red mail Winter, Admiral, Sir William
Anyone researching this family should be aware that the Heralds Visitations of Worcs. & Glos. by Robert Cooke cannot be fully relied upon and give differing information. The father of Admiral William was John Winter, Surveyor to the Navy before him.He had property in Deptford and was a Burgess of Bristol. It was he who first built a house at Lydney known as Whitecross afterwards occupied by his grandson, Sir John Winter, known as the 'plague' of the Forest of Dean and an early tycoon. The parentage of John, the Surveyor, whose wife was Alice Tirry cannot be proven after the post mortem inquisitions of his supposed father and grandfather are examined as well as The Letters & Papers of Henry VIII which refer to him. The Herald, Cooke made other howlers in the Winter of Huddington genealogy to which the Elizabethan, Admiral William is linked.Exactly how is still unknown. The barrister,Grazebrooke reveals errors in the D'Aubigny connection. Thorough and prolonged research reveals the others so be warned and do not treat these Visitation as 'Bible' as many seem to do.
