This branch of the family has not yet been attached to the main medieval tree

It is difficult to piece together the family from the records which do exist, however many do include relationships so some attempt has been made to use these as acurately as possible.
There are still doubts as the names are very similar in all parts of the family so “William son of William” does not always define a person without ambiguity.

It is said the family gave their name to Kelloe a small village SE of Durham and many surrounding villages are mentioned in the property records.

The records of the family disappear after 1399. It is not clear if they left or the line died out
