I have a lot more data than I should post. I'll
send detail in several personal emails to you.

Here's the line I have from a couple of books back
to 1536. I can fill in the side details, but for
time mostly giving you the direct line and dropping
other wives, children, etc. "Way back" the name
was spelled different ways, three different ones
by one of the Vicars in his own church records!
I'm typing this from the books, so I may have a
typo or miss a date here or there.
