== I was raised as a Boston brahmin with many privileges and educated at private schools such as Newman Preparatory on Marlborough St. in Boston and Manter Hall in Cambridge. I lived as a small child on Bay State Road directly across the street from Boston University. When I was 9,we moved to 14 Centre Street in Cambridge near Harvard Square. I attended St. Paul's School in Cambridge and Rosary Academy in Watertown,as well.My memories are fond of those seemingly simple and carefree days of my youth. Currently,I am writing a book called ANCESTOR LOTTERY and hope to be finished before Dec 2017. I am directly descended from and/or cousins of European royalty & nobility. I am directly descended from 15 Magna Carta barons and a cousin of 9 Magna Carta barons. I am directly descended from 4 Mayflower passengers and 2 passengers are my cousins. I am a cousin to 37 Presidents of the United States. Cousin to HM Queen Elizabeth II,Sir Winston Churchill,Princess Diana,Kevin Bacon,the Astor's,the de Medici's,the Bonaparte's,and many more.
I am the 9th great niece of Governor John Winthrop of Massachusetts Bay Colony. I descend from his older sister,Anne Winthrop and her husband,Thomas Fones. Also,I descend from 4 passengers on The Mayflower----John Tilley,Joan Hurst,Elizabeth Tilley & John Howland. I have been researching my ancestry for more than 10 years to find that I go back to European royalty and nobility.
