== Biography == Famous Great Grandparents Quite incredibly, EVERY MAGNA CARTA SURETY BARON with living descendants is a great grandfather of mine! The odds against me being the great granddaughter of all 18 Barons seems huge, - yet this is what Wikitree is telling me. Is the Wikitree computer broken, or is every Magna Carta Sureity Baron a great grandfather of mine?

Other Famous Great Grandparents Protestant Martyr and Bible translator William Tyndall's Father is Christine's 15th Great Grandfather. Deacon Samuel Chapin inspiration for Saint Gauden's famous statue 'The Pilgrim' is my 9th great grandfather Elizabeth Woodville York, Queen Consort of Edward IV of England and Henry VIII's grandmother,- is my 14th Great Grandmother. John Plantagenet, King John I of England is my 23rd Great Grandfather. Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine , my 24th great grandmother Martin Kellogg, Martin Kellogg, and Samuel Belding, - three great grandfathers who survived the infamous Deerfield Village Massacre of 1704 are my 6th, 7th, and 7th great grandfathers. Gov. Thomas Wells, first Governour of Connecticut, is my 9th great grandfather.

Famous Cousins: King Henry VIII Tudor of England - 1st cousin Lady Jane Grey, 17 yr old Queen, promoted by English Protestant families, -2nd cousin. Anne Marbury Hutchinson, exiled religious dissenter, massacred 1643 Pelham, NY,- 4th cousin. Jonathan Edwards (Puritan Theologian/"Sinners in the Hands of An Angy God" sermon - is my 4th cousin. Lyon Gardiner of Saybrook, Connecticut Colony, East Hampton LI NY, and Gardiner's island is my 6th cousin

I'm Cousin to all US Presidents except 6, because we share common great grandparents. John Jacob Astor IV (who died on the Titanic) and I are both great grandchildren of Sir George Gordon 2nd earl of Huntley Gordon-618 Czar Nicholas II Romanov - is my 15th Cousin.

I find mine comes from 1607 on. And all linked in here as magna carta immigrants. All cousins from the wars of the roses days. Its what I find?

All related to key people's like Beauchamp. Beaufort, Beaumont . Because these familys married everyone in what we call the peerage.. For politcal reasons or whatever.

Hi Christine, due to the massive amount of people that descend from historically significant ancestors, we don't put our personal relationships on the profile page of their ancestor (you did so with Lacy-284). We ask that you put any relationships you want noted on your personal profile page. Thanks.

Welcome to the 1776 Project (, a subproject of the Military and War Project:

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.

If you haven’t already, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include 1776 Project and any other tag terms that you wish to follow:

Some categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as
1776 Liberty Bell
Event years 1773-1789.

Re: Unknown-336709 (or any other profile): please use great caution when using Findagrave or any other user-contributed site. They can offer clues, but should rarely if ever be relied upon as a sole source for vital stats (including maiden names) for a profile. It's okay to note the information in the profile's narrative, but I would never change a maiden name based on a claim made on a FAG profile alone. Happy to discuss further.

How did this family survive the infamous Deerfield Massacre of 1704?

I shake my head a lot thinking about how bad it must have been for all of them. All you have to do is Google Deerfield Massacre and read about it and suddenly your life is not so bad! LOL Daniel Belding was my 7th? grand and Hester my 6th. Hester went on to marry a Clark then to Wheeler. I think about the pure hell that went on. Elizabeth 7th grand butchered and the children, What the ones left alive had to see and endure marching to Canada in the snow. If you couldn't keep up they just killed you where you stood. And Daniel lost 2 wives the same way in different years. We think we have it bad if the electric goes out in the dead of winter. I don't know but I do thank God for the ones that survived or I would not be her

Christine, I did follow up regarding Adolph Banker and added some sources to his profile. Bancker-9 His son, Nathaniel Banker born November 27, 1727, died July 16, 1772 (not your Nathaniel)

Another of Adolph's son Jan, born June 26, 1733, died December 22, 1796. He had eight children, including a Nathaniel and a Phoebe.

A partial history and genealogical record of the Bancker or Banker families of America, by Howard James Banker, Published by Tuttle, Rutland, Vermont, 1909, page 144 says that Nathaniel Banker, son of Jan married Elizabeth Humphrey and is the father of Phoebe, baptized at Hopewell, May 7, 1782 and married March 22, 1805 to Daniel Giles.
