Re: Gorham Pedigree



Interesting, Ginny. How 'modern' is the writing (or is it typed)?

b. name disappears from Leicestershire


There are dotted lines between a daughter, who I think is
Olive or Olivia and William then another dotted line from
William and Henry in the second generation. There appears
to be no connection between Ralph and W. filius Gorram in
the first generation of the pedigree. In the third
generation, William and Henry are connected then a dotted
line extends from Henry. Robert, Ralph, Ive and Geoffrey
are all connected in the third generation. There is a
dotted line from the preceding Ralph to Henry, a monk of St.
Albans. A dotted line extends from William at Churchfield
to John of Glapthorne and Benefield who has a dotted line to
James at Benefield who started the American branch.

The branch from 1. John of Glapthorne descends until about
1913 with English Gorhams.
