anything else that might distinguish Celia Fiennes profile?

Not sure if Celia would warrant notable status, but she does have a Wikipedia page. I've yet to read from her ground-breaking travel diary, which apparently was first published by a cousin (the line can be presumptively traced by starting with Saye and Sele, Viscounts through Cecil Twistleton and finishing with Saye and Sele barons of 1603) of hers.

Her father had two sons by his first marriage, and four daughters by his second. If I am not mistaken, Celia was the only one of his children who did not marry, but not many of his children had issue.

Happy for any suggestions or edit enhancements to her profile. . . I just happened upon her and connected the appropriate parents.

Fann, I hope she was actually half-sister to William, or did you find an early transgender?

Thanks for catching that. I have the worst kind of dyslexia. Need a transposition of concepts? I can do that!
Wonder if there is a connection with Ranulph Fiennes?

Just to point out that London Lives   is free to view  ( i.e don't need to go through FMP).and has full transcripts of the documents I've linked to the search page https://www.londonlives.org/formPersName.jsp

Thanks RJ
