Alleged Ancestry of William Brinton of Staffordshire

May 22, 2016

Integrated Genealogy - Ongoing Research

A few searches on Google return several theories on the ancestry of William Brinton. Without heavy digging, though, it is hard to determine who is correct. I suppose, at a certain point in genealogy research, it’s all a bunch of guesses anyway. The genealogy presented on the Brinton Family: The Brinton & Bagley Families site traces William’s ancestry back much further than this page.

At this moment, I’m going with the following source (and I’m using the spellings therein):

The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Volume 37 – Publication Fund of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, 1913

Generation I

John Brinton b. circa 1490-1500; d. about 1560

Generation II

Thomas Brinton, buried at Sedgeley (Sedgley) Church before 20 October 1612

Generation III

Thomas Brinton baptized at Sedgeley May 31, 1562[1]; buried May 14, 1650[2]
m. September 25, 1605 to Ellin Mason, daughter of Thomas Mason and Elizabeth…

Dump the UN, dump NATO, pull all troops back home to protect the homeland, fortress America! Let the other countries come begging to us on our terms if they want assistance.

Donald Trump says he’d consider withdrawing America from the UN

Mr Trump would be even less indulgent towards America’s multilateral obligations. Asked whether, on the basis of his coruscating criticisms of the United Nations, which he called fat, sloppy and inactive, he would consider withdrawing America from that organisation, he says: “You always have to be prepared to walk or you can never get anything done. And that means walking from countries, in terms of defence, it means walking.”

No one could be more appalled by Mr Trump’s success than the…

1 May 2016. Iran or Turkey… Who’s the REAL Enemy?

May 2, 2016

Voices from Russia

00 The Battle of Kosovo memorial at Gazimestan for Vidovdan in 2009. 30.06.13

This is the monument on the Kosovo Pole… never forget that the Turks were the West’s mortal enemy in the past… now, what can we say about today?

_____________________________

Here’s a question… who’s the REAL enemy of the West? Is it Iran or is it Turkey? Look at the short vid above… what does it tell about Trump and Chilly Hilly who want to demonise Iran (and what does it tell you about their backers)? Remember… the Ottomans kidnapped Christian children for the janissaries and their harems. Look at Syria and the Kurds… they haven’t changed their spots, have they?

darius I the great, king of persia (52 Ancestors #2)

April 2, 2016

the mix that makes up me

Theme, Week 2 (Jan. 8-14):  “King”
———————————————————–

The furthest-back ancestors I’m aware of having are, Persian kings.  This per a genealogist in Norway with a humongous database who does research for the Flekkefjord Historical Society.[1]

Thus, the graphic at top my blog here (and the image below):  the Rock of Behistun, famed monument of Darius I the Great (522-486 BC), king of the Persian Empire at the greatest height of its wealth and power, among my 63rd great-grandfathers.

Who woulda thunk?! Certainly not me, let alone anyone else in my family except, my maternal Norwegian Grandma Rosalie, she who endured merry laughter at her assertions that her line connected to, “all the kings & queens of Europe.”

Well, Go Gramma!😉  Because, according to Norsk genealogy records you were 100% right and, then some:  kings & queens worldwide was more like it.

Genealogy discoveries often make history come…
