History of Parliament

And yes, I am still finding sources that give my paternal grandmother’s Strickland line going back to the Sizergh Castle Stricklands (who go back to the de Vauxs of Normandy). This line is said to pass through the two Matthews, father and son, who immigrated to America and settled (as it seems) in Isle of Wight County, Virginia with some of their descendants eventually removing to the 13th Colony of Georgia (from whence I type north of Atlanta).
