Note: These families have been classed as the ‘county élite’ or the ‘lesser knightage and greater squirearchy’ under the same rules as applied in Appendix 1. The class of ‘lesser squirearchy’ is composed of all those families assessed at £20 p.a. or more in 1412,1436 or 1451 (excluding the Nottingham merchant families of Alastre, Rasyn, and Tannesley). Younger sons and brothers have been counted with the main branches of their families, but junior branches established beyond one generation have been counted separately
