Note II - The word Thorp is Saxon for Village. Becuns-Thorp means Beach-tree Village ; and in such a one the remained son of Grimbaldus1 undoubtedly located, and was known by his place of resident as Ralph2 de Bacons-Thorp. The early monumental brasses of the family have effigies under trees, and evident allusion to the origin of the name. Roger3 de Bacon, son of Ralph2 was father of Robert4, who assumed the name of Bacon; and to make his identity clear, during the change of patronymic, was styled Robert4 Fitz Roger. He was a person of great power and cousin of Jeffrey Ridel Bishop of Ely in 1174. He was the father of Reginald5, who was father of Richard6, how having five sons, one of them, the fifth son, Sir Henry7 Bacon of Letheringsete, a justice itinerant, or Circuit Judge, would seem by the affix to his name to be inpossession of the estate of his distant cousin Peter6 de Leteringsete.
Note III- Playfair gives the line of descent from George3 as follows: Roger4, Robert5, Reginald6 Richard7, Reginald8, Richard9, Sir Henry10, Sir Henry11 who married Margaret Ludham, Sir Roger12 whose daughter Beatrix13 was the wife of Sir William Thorp.
