Freeney connection to Wales and England

William The Conqueror->Beauclerc->Platagenent->Gray->Kynaston->Thornes->Littleton ->Whittington->Bothum->Goslee->Freeney

It's always fun to make a breakthrough from an "Immigrant Ancestor" back to his country of birth. It's even more fun if you can continue the line back in the birth country. In the last few days I've connected the Freeney line back to Wales via Nathaniel LITTLETON who was born in Henley, Shropshire County, Wales. As a bonus, his line in Wales is documented back to the year 1000.

I was able to find quite a few notes on many of the individuals in this line, which appear at the end of each persons record -- probably worth a quick read...for example: Eleanor Cobham tried for wichcraft and treason, orAntigone the bastard child of Humphrey Plantagenet, Duke of Gloucester.

So after quite a bit of work, you can now (for the first time ever!) see each generation from William The Conqueror to Marguerite Freeney from the link above (after the page loads, be sure to scroll your browser to the right or you will think you are looking at a blank page).
