Did I describe that correctly? I meant one spouse has a child. Then that
parent marries again, arranging the marriage of their child to the offspring of
the new spouse. The children are therefore in close proximity, but unrelated
(within a prohibited degree).
For instance, in Waugh's book _The Lordship of England: Royal Wardship and
Marriages..._, in figure 1.6 ["Linkage through Widows and Half-blood
Marriages"], we have Gladys [Ddu] having a child Roger by her second husband
Ralph de Mortimer. Roger de Mortimer is given as marrying Maud de Braose,
daughter of Gwladys's first husband Reginald de Braose by his first wife.
To complicate arrangements, Isabel de Brasoe, daughter of Reginald by his first
wife, married (1230)Gwladys's brother david (son of Llewelyn ap Iorwerth).
