    • Notes: 
    • A few published genealogies have claimed to have connected Richard Pomeroy to the family by that name from Devonshire. This would give descendants of Richard Pomeroy a connection to the royal family. However this was based on a false pedigree that has been proven to have been fraudulently altered. (See New England Historic and Genealogical Record, Vol. 68, pp. 47-56, and Vol. 70, p. 55)
