ROBERT, son and heir
[details of his career from 1203 to 1232 are given. Paget says this is the elder John, but as I said before, I wonder whether there may really be two Roberts in succession here.]

Anyhow, that's what Paget says. A lot of it is quite detailed, but it's not always obvious how the relationships could be proved from the sort of evidence that's cited. So maybe we should bear in mind the note of caution Todd Farmerie sounded before. Checking the chain link by link would be a fairly lengthy task...
