9781101606285_p0_v2_s600x595  quite a fascinating book, albeit the times were harsh and cruel        1154-1399

The Plantagenet Kings:  Henry II   1154-1189

Richard I  1189-1199

John           1199-1216

Henry III    1216-1272

Edward I     1272-1307

Edward II     1307-1327

Edward III    1327-1377

Richard II     1377-1399

The ancestors I’ve been able to trace for the 12th, 13th, and 14th centuries were my 14th-16th Great Grandparents.  The number of a person’s 14th-16th Great Grandparents is absolutely astrnomical – over 250,000.  I cannot put names to all of mine!!    But I can identify a few so here goes.
