We're clearly not going to get an answer to the straightforward
question, now asked politely twice, of what specific reference
supports the assertion that the man in question preferred the form of
William la Zouche Mortimer and, in particular, that he objected to the
form of William la Zouche "de" Mortimer (rather than some other form)
- which is the issue here. There also has been no evidence provided
for the assertion that this was not just a legal ploy as Doug Thompson
So who exactly is dodging the point here?
