St. Pater’s Parish Church, Northumberland Unitary Authority, Northumberland, England.  Looks lonely.  Final resting place for Thomas Grey, 1448-1498, my 15th Great Grandfather

2ce84885-22b0-41fb-b137-36d48083d89a  I found this image in association with my 14th Great Grandfather Sir James Horseley DeLaval 1423-1492.  Rather nice.  Genealogy romanticized.

01458632-b719-4ded-9341-02452214343f  This is the symbol I have found to show I am a descendent of Charlemagne.  How many others can claim this distinction?  Millions??
