Second Magna Carta trail: Her father is on a trail from Gateway Ancestor Nathanial Littleton, but it goes through a sibling. This profile does not appear to have been reviewed and approved by the Magna Carta Project as part of a trail to another Gateway Ancestor, so I removed the Magna Carta project badge and descendant category.

I'm glad to hear Magna Carta is involved. I've been waiting to see if Joan's placement in the tree is correct. I had my doubts, as a result from researching my family, so this should be interesting.

Did she die in Wark-on-Tweed or Wark-on-Tyne? They are both in Northumberland.
