Helen of Galloway, George Washington ancestor
I was searching for bits of pres. George Washington's ancestry and came upon a dispute at one of his pairs of 17th great grand-parents.

Roger de Quincy, 2nd earl of Winchester married Helen Fitz Alan, a.k.a. Helen of Galloway.The conundrum is her parents.
Some sources claim they were Alan Fitz Roland and Helen l'Isle.
Others claim it was Alan & Margaret of Huntingdon.
Some claim her grand-parents were Roger de Lacy constable of Chester or
Reginald de l'Isle & Fonia of Moray or
Roland of Galloway & Eleanor of Morville and David of Scotland & Matilda of Chester.
But the more "authoritative" sources seem more vague, while the more preciseand complete claims seem less "authoritative".
