About Edward of Wells

From Stewart Baldwin's Henry Project:

Hugh of Wells (falsely attributed), d. 1235, bishop of Lincoln.

[Weir (1989), 63, with a question mark] There seems to be no good reason for including him among Henry's illegitimate children. See Hugh's biographical entry in DNB 10, 168, where Hugh is called a son of Edward of Wells and brother of bishop Josceline of Bath and Wells.
