NOTE:- Both families of Stable and Stables were wide spreading in Pontefract and the neighbourhood (the registers being full of them), and there being so many Williams and Leonards it is difficult to continue the pedigree further. There were branches at a later date at Hemsworth and Huddersfield who claim to descend from that at Pontefract, but where they are likely to have joined it is not easy to determine.
