a. The Complete Peerage presents a chart of this Kyme family, and shows the ancestry preceding the first Simon de Kyme above as follows: Simon (md Agnes), son of William, son of Simon, son of William de Kyme, "tenant of Waldin the engineer, the Domesday tenant".

b. In 1256, William, for his salvation and that of Lucy his wife, confirmed numerous gifts to Bullington Priory. Lucy, still living in 1279, was buried in the Grey Friar's Church at York, as was Sir William de Ros of Igmanthorpe. CP makes no further statement as to her parentage, but that she was related to this William de Ros is certain. She may be the daughter of Sir William de Ros and his wife Lucy Fitz Piers.
