Dear Tim, Don, Ian, etc.

The identification of William Bonville's wife Margaret as daughter of
Reynold Grey, 3rd Lord Grey, of Ruthin, by his wife, Margaret Roos, was
first made by Robert Behra. Mr. Behra found material in the Close Rolls
which proved Margaret (Grey) Bonville's parentage. Several years ago, I had
correspondence with Mr. Behra. He graciously sent me a copy of his
research, which I encouraged him to publish. However, as far as I know, he
has never published his findings. I have since lost track of him.

Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah
