I just traced the Wife’s ancestry back to 1170 by finding a source connecting her great-great-great-great-grandfather’s marriage into the Throckmorton family. It took a Google search on a misspelling of the man’s name. The connections are well-documented; I even found a reference to his name – misspelled but in the right place and time.
I’m stunned. I knew she was a blue-blood but dang!
