I’m not sure I like my latest finding on ancestry.com.  My 12th Great Grandfather, Edward Stafford the 3rd Duke of Buckingham, was beheaded on Tower Hill in London on the 17th of May 1521.

    I have been watching The Hollow Crown on PBS. All sorts of Buckinghams getting the sword!

    I’ve seen a bit of it but not the Buckingham bits – I look forward to watching more closely – and of course knitting while viewing.
