(I just did a search t see if I'd already posted on this, but got no result - apols if I have repeated myself).

I am tracking down the heraldry of the participants and have found most of the Blois faction and a couple of the English )Hugh de Calverly, Robert Knolles), but was wondering if there are any sources out there for the rest of the Anglo-Breton faction? English or French sources welcome.

Miscreant - many thanks for that link! Yes, there's two I've spotted so far, John Dagworth and Jean de Beaumanoir.

One of the problems is that every aspirant Tudor and Victorian squire and gentleman claims to have had an ancester who fought in it.

With wikipedia - if you see something that you know is incorrect, then you should attempt to correct it. Which I'd say is the point of the format

Thank you for your comment, I`m not sure it bares any relevance to GuyDeDinan`s request but I`m glad you cleared that up anyway.
