According to Carl Boyer in his book, Medieval Ancestors of Robert Abell, the pedigree that begins with Osulf of Flemingby to Sir Robert de Harington is taken from Ian Grimble's The Harington Family. Grimble says the Plea Roll of 1277 contains a pedigree of Sir Robert's descent from Osulf which confirmed the evidence of the Register at St. Bee's [Dungdale's Monasticon]. This evidence was part of a suit against the Abbot of Holm Culton concerning Sir Robert's claim to the manor of Flemingby, but Robert had to vacant all but 380 acres of the manor.
