    So interesting! Had no idea how the name Delaware came to be and how the children were so involved here in the colonies. I do think I have this name in my tree and I am excited to do more digging now.

  2. I knew Mary Carey had more than child by Kind Henry but I never read anything about them or what happened to them. This most interesting and I too never knew the origin of Delaware. I had read that Queen Elizabeth tired to generous to her Mary’s children but I never knew how. Thanks for the information and look forward to more interesting facts.

  3. Anne Knolley’s is my Maternal 13th great grandmother and Mary Bolyne is my 15th great grandmother same side of the family. I have just concluded a 5 year effort to find the truth behind my father’s assertion in 1978 just before he passed away at age 92. The fact is that my mother was chosen because of her descent from the Twin Girls: Elizabeth and Lucy Chalfant 1541…daughters of Windsor Castle staff, William Chalfant and his wife. My father conducted his selection of a bride like he was the King’s 8th great grandson & waited until he was 42 years old. His mother is a descendant of Ethelralda Mault’s Daughter Hester Harrington,
    who did not die young. That’s been proved by the inheritance records of Watchfield Manor at Bath where Hester’s daughter Anne Steubbs married the Codrington family and her daughter married the Whitehall Marsh family: My Paternal great grandmother’s line. In any event, It is my mother’s family which is Loaded with Legitimate French Kings through the Valois, Bourboun, Holy Roman Empress and Spain/Portugal Kings Ferdinand and Isabella. All of this has surfaced in the last 24 months and I am working hard putting the discovery forward to a Disbelieving World. My father had information that only an insider could know which will blow the hair back for some when I publish next year. I am playing a very fast CATCH Up on the Tudor’s as you might imagine and had no clue that any of these people existed let alone could be related in any meaningful way. Your’s Very Sincerely: D.

  4. You must exciting to find out so much information all at once. My family are descendants of Queen Isabella and have the tranced the first one that set foot in the New World in the 1500 hundreds. We have all those related here and not through the internet but through 45 years of visiting churches, and record places and this year the last aunt of the pure Spanish line passed away. We hope to open a museum of records and pictures and antiques in Texas. I hope to spend time in Spain and continue my search to those still living in Spain. All I have is the name of cousin and his family connects in court of the Queen who is our ancestor who came because the Queen was trying to populate the Americas. I have a question about those of lineage of the Tudors. I have seen people with the last name Tudor every once in a while. Are they in anyway related or did they just pick the name and are not of the lineage? Tudor is not a common last name.

  5. I just found your question 7 mos. after you posted, so apologies on being non responsive. To your direct question which Tudor is royal in America there are none from Loins of Henry VII. Tudor is a Scandanavian name and you can find it on the DNA scale as NORSE or Norman French in Origin. The Royal Tudors descend from my mothers 14th great great grandfather Owen Tudor who married Henry V widow and French daughter of Charles VI: Catherine of Valois. Their Blood remains alive and active in the Grey Sisters who’s sister Jane Grey was killed by MAry Tudor. They were named by Henry VIII to be the next Royal line after his Edward VI should he not have a son. My line is not TUDOR by name but is by blood descent down two bastard lines of Henry VIII. My mother’s line was from Windsor Castle 1541. and most likely the Laundress there gave birth to twin girls believed to be Henry’s off spring. My father’s line came down from the Daughter of Hester Harringron Anne, Steubbs- Codrington. When Robert Codrington died the Home given to Ethelralda’s daughter Herster passed to Anne’s new Husband Ralph Marsh of London. My Paternal great great grandmother is named WHITEHALL Marsh, and his story to me in 1978 is in the last stages of Confirmation. The Property at Bath went like this: Henry VIII to John Maulte the Kings Taylor & Ethelralda adopted by Maulte/ Joan Dingly Dobson being her Laundress mother. Hester was her daughter by John Harrington, Hester married very young to Steubbs in London, and the property was transferred from Hester to Anne and her Husband Robert Codrington. Anne went onto mary my Paternal 7th great grandfather Ralph Marsh and the story came down to my father born 1887 from his mother Clairissa Elizabeth Marsh who married Andrew Rice about 1880. We are further blood connected by our 6th great grandfather John Rice of Dedham, Ma. 1624 and his father Perrot ap Rice born to Margaret Mercer – Rice 1580. The Kings son JOhn Perrot 1528 is said to be the father of Margaret Mercer by her mother Johanna Lovelace- so the Tudor Blood seems to find it’s way forward in time. It has fallen to me to find the pathway and that means I was summoned from my heavenly home by my father’s negotiation with my mother in 1947. This is now my life’s work only begun 6years ago based upon a 1 hr conversation in 1978 with my dad. DCR 1948 of the Nebraska Rice’s (40 surviving members of this Tudor line)

  6. YES: Geni still shows Ann Knolleys as my Great Grandmother via the De la Wares and Catherine Carry Mary Boelyne. I make no claim upon the bloodline of the current House of Hanover/Windsor’s except to celebrate their roles. But the DNA message is clear to me. I have confirmation of two or three Sutton Dudley’s.
