I am pleased that you all liked this post.

Bibliophile, that is very interesting that your line descends from William the Conqueror. In using a software application that links up with Ancestry.com, I was identified as descending from that line. I do not have that exact information on this PC but it would be interesting to see where your linage divided from mine. I doubt that the information is correct in my case but it is interesting to look further into it. I had the image from the previous research I did on Ancestry.com.

This is so good, I love the sepia colour pictures and have enjoyed solving this one, thank you mikemac!

Henry I "Beauclerc", King of England is my mother's 23rd great grandfather.
He was the 4th son of William "The Conqueror", King of England who was her
24th great grand father.


Henry became King of England following the death of William Rufus, who had been shot while hunting. Henry inherited the kingdom of England from William Rufus, giving him a claim of suzerainty over Wales and Scotland, and acquired the Duchy of Normandy, a complex entity with troubled borders.

On 11 November 1100 Henry married Matilda, the daughter of Malcolm III of Scotland. ] The pair had probably first met earlier the previous decade, possibly being introduced through Bishop Osmund of Salisbury. Historian Warren Hollister argues that Henry and Matilda were emotionally close, but their union was also certainly politically motivated.Matilda had originally been named Edith, an Anglo-Saxon name, and was a member of the West Saxon royal family, being the niece of Edgar the Ætheling, the great-granddaughter of Edmund Ironside and a descendant of Alfred the Great. For Henry, marrying Matilda gave his reign increased legitimacy, and for Matilda, an ambitious woman, it was an opportunity for high status and power in England........
