I think I have an ancestor in my lineage thru Sir Ralph Neville and Joan Beaufort thru to a Remington who immigrated to Colonial America during the Great Puritan Immigration and also MAYBE related to a signer of the Magna Carta (a Claverly??) Can you check this out and post your answer.

Hello Z

I am assuming you are asking if a John Remington is a surety baron descendant, or perhaps a Gateway Ancestor?  John Remington is not documented as being one of the 240 or so known MC Gateway Ancestors by Douglas Richardson.  This does not mean that he is not a surety baron descendant.  There is not enough information in your post regarding the lineage of John Remington to make a preliminary assessment.  There are many thousands of Individuals who may be lineal descendants of one or more surety barons that simply have not yet been documented or proved as such.  More information in regards to his lineage or a Wikitree profile ID, if he is on Wikitree, would be helpful.  Is he currently listed in your family tree ?

Remington pedigree

in which the writer does say that a certain John disappears from view, and suggests that he might be the immigrant, though the smoking gun seems to be lacking.

Not seeing the Neville connection.  Ralph Neville-53 did descend from 7 sureties includng John fitz Robert de Clavering.

So the absence of the line from the book might be because the identification of the immigrant is uncertain, or it might be because the English John doesn't have the ancestry.

(His mother was Elizabeth Hutton.  Beatrice Fincham was her mother.)
