Conquering William

I was, for the first time, able to connect our family tree to other well documented trees that go very far back in time. Here is a tree showing each generation between William The Conqueror and the Howell line!!

Starting with recent generations, the connection starts with the Howell line, and then goes back through families Heard and Perrin, and then to the Clopton family which is quite well documented. From the Clopton tree I was then able to connect to families Waldergrave, Drury, Calthorpe, Stapleton, de la Pole, and Stafford, which contain many interesting people. So the tree now has quite a few kings, queens, knights, lords, earls, and dukes of this and that.
