Magna Carta Ancestry: A Study in Colonial and Medieval Families

click here for the source page for Royal Ancestry

The second edition of Magna Carta Ancestry has four volumes (I, II, III, IV) and is divided into chapters (family name or lordship) with numbered entries. In the examples, the Beauchamp chapter in volume I spans pages 134 through 150; entry number 6 in the chapter is on page 142. The volume, page(s), chapter, and entry information in the examples will probably not be appropriate for the profile you are working on, so you will need to replace the details (volume, page, chapter, entry) to be correct for the information you are citing.

Contents

First Inline Citation

The style is based on the Notes style of Evidence Explained. It should be a named ref (MCA) and link to Google Books' snippit view of the first page of the chapter cited. Use it the first time you reference Magna Carta Ancestry (see below for recommended use for project profiles).

<ref name="MCA">Douglas Richardson. ''Magna Carta Ancestry: A Study in Colonial and Medieval Families,'' 4 vols, ed. Kimball G. Everingham, 2nd edition (Salt Lake City: the author, 2011), [https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=8JcbV309c5UC&pg=PA134 volume I, pages 134-150] BEAUCHAMP.</ref>

results in:[1]
Note: Don't forget to change the specific volume, page, chapter, and number from the example to reflect what you are citing. Change the URL to Google Books' snippit view of the first page of the chapter you are citing (or delete the URL link).
Note 2: Since it took me YEARS to figure out how to link to a specific Google Books page that was not in volume I... here's an example with a link to a page in volume IV:
<ref name="mcaIV200">Douglas Richardson. ''Magna Carta Ancestry: A Study in Colonial and Medieval Families,'' 4 vols, ed. Kimball G. Everingham, 2nd edition (Salt Lake City: the author, 2011), [https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=8JcbV309c5UC&pg=RA3-PA200#v=onepage&q&f=false volume IV, page 200] TONY 3.</ref>
results in:[2]
subsequent references (for first example):

<ref name="MCA" />

results in:[1]

Second Inline Citation

The style is based on the Short Notes style of Evidence Explained. It should be a named ref[3] and link to the Google Books' snippit view of the specific page being referenced (or the first page, if more than one). Include the specific entry number of the chapter where the information can be found (see below for recommended use for project profiles).

<ref name="mcaI142">Richardson, ''Magna Carta Ancestry,'' [https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=8JcbV309c5UC&pg=PA142 I:142] BEAUCHAMP 6.</ref>

results in:[4]
Note: Don't forget to change the specific volume, page, chapter, and number from the example to reflect what you are citing (and delete or change the URL also).
subsequent references:

<ref name="mcaI142" />

Reliability

Magna Carta Ancestry is one of Douglas Richardson's "Royal Ancestry series" (another being Plantagenet Ancestry, each with second editions published in 2011). Richardson's editor for these series, including the five-volume Royal Ancestry (2013), was Kimball G. Everingham. Royal Ancestry and the 2nd editions of Magna Carta Ancestry (four volumes) and Plantagenet Ancestry (three volumes) were published by the author.
Richardson's works are considered reliable.[5]

Magna Carta Project's Recommended Use

Background: Magna Carta Ancestry (2011) and Royal Ancestry (2013) are the foundational references used by the Magna Carta Project to develop profiles in trails between the Gateway Ancestors documented in these works to a Magna Carta Surety Baron.[6] The Magna Carta Project recommends checking for updates to Magna Carta Ancestry in Royal Ancestry when possible. The project does not recommend Plantagenet Ancestry as a source for Magna Carta Project profiles because its focus was not on descendants of the Magna Carta Surety Barons.[7] See additional information about Magna Carta-related sources on the Magna Carta Project Reliable Sources page.

When developing a Magna Carta Project profile, the Magna Carta Project recommends using all three forms when citing Magna Carta Ancestry, even if you are not using multiple Richardson references. This way, a reference to the relevant chapter(s) can be easily found, the specific facts being cited to Richardson have specific references, and the profile will have a link back to this page, which has additional information. The project recommends including a Richardson citation to genealogical information (birth, death, marriage, and parent/child relationships), even after a primary source has been identified and added to the profile (although there are exceptions, which would be discussed with project members as they arise).

Specifics:

The first inline citation - the first time you cite Magna Carta Ancestry - should include the volume and pages for the relevant chapter (family name or lordship) or chapters. Frequently, parents or children will be covered in a different chapter, so more than one chapter may be relevant to the person whose profile you're working on and should be cited.
This first inline citation should be used following the first use of the name of the person represented by the profile. For project profiles, this seems to work best when the person's name in bold is on a line by itself just below the == Biography == heading, either with or without additional information. For example:
== Biography ==
'''Thomas de Beauchamp''', K.G., 11th Earl of Warwick[1]
The second inline citation is specific to a chapter's entry. If all of the information in a sentence or paragraph is from the specific entry, the citation can go at the end of the sentence or paragraph. If information from another source is included in the sentence or paragraph, then citations should be used as needed to show what information came from what source. Following is an example from Elizabeth (Butler) Claiborne's profile:
Elizabeth Butler, of Little Birch, Essex, England,[8] was born before 1612.[9][10][11]
The bibliography style entry should be included in the bulleted list of sources.

Even if using all three styles in a profile seems redundant (which they will, if the profile is sourced to only one Richardson entry), please add them anyway, as it is to be hoped that additional details and sources will be added in the future.

Trying to implement what was (with spotty success) led to a revamp - so... previous comments don't really apply anymore.

New version, in a nutshell:

  • 1st ref (note citation/full inline citation, named ref), citing entire chapter(s)
  • 2nd ref (short note citation, named ref with vol/page[s]), citing chapter & entry
  • bibliography entry with link to this page

P.S. If you do have several different named references to the same work, using Short Notes with a Bibliography entry (#Short Note Style and #Bibliography Style) might be the better option. Please keep in mind that which style to use is more a question of aesthetics and personal preference than a "rule", although the Magna Carta Project would prefer that you use one of the styles suggested here (with or without a link back to this page), to afford a certain level of consistency among project-managed profiles.

Thanks!

Please note: It was pointed out that WikiTree recommends that named references be within quotation marks - for example, ref name="MCA" (see this section of the Sources help page). I've changed the examples to reflect this, although both work (with or without quotation marks).

Please note that if your named citation uses quotation marks, the subsequent references need to also use quotation marks, and vice versa. The names need to match exactly, to include capitalization.

If you have more than one entry that you're referring to, you'll need different names for them. One suggested naming scheme is to use the volume number and page number with mca - for example, name="mcaI142"

Cheers, Liz

I believe the G2G discussion has run its course, with Evidence Explained Notes style the outcome.

I do not have a copy of this reference, but I believe the basic elements are correct. If you have a copy and see corrections that are needed, please post a comment with a quote from the book that applies (that way, I'll be able to revise the Royal Ancestry and Plantagenet Ancestry pages also).

Thanks!

P.S. The citation for the 2005 edition is Evidence Explained Bibliography style.

Thanks Heather! I've updated it... and since how to cite Richardson is still being discussed, the page now has two versions - the updated version, followed by a wordier version of said update.

After I get some feedback, and the G2G discussion about citation format for Richardson has had a chance to evolve, I'll get it back down to a single version and add the project / project leadership as managers.

Thanks for getting it started!

Liz thank you, you (or any member TBH) are welcome to update/correct errors in any source pages that I created.

Hi! I'm about to post a question in G2G and notice that the citation example here appears to be outdated. the 2nd edition I have is in 4 volumes, is copyrighted to Douglas Richardson (2011) and most citations show the work as self-published, Salt Lake City (the address for the copyright).

I wanted to include the Space: page in the G2G question, but this page needs updating before doing so (there's enough confusion already :D).

I'll send a trusted list request. Could you add me as a manager? I'm co-leader of the Magna Carta Project, and I'd like to add the project & the other leader & the project coordinator as managers.

Thanks!
