I show Genevieve Jane Clerke marrying Dominic Carkin (1548-1596). Their daughter Mary Carkin (1525-1616) then married William Basse (1520-1616) and I am descended from that line. I am pretty sure this is the same Genevieve Clerke, so I need to figure out which of us is right on her spouse.What are your sources?

Genevieve Jane is 19 degrees from Cheryl Hess, 23 degrees from John Lennon and 11 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
