My 12th Great Grandfather Miles Crosby 1483-1538 was a Royal Archer during the reign of King Henry VIII.  I love these discoveries in my genealogy.

Royal Archer

Incidentally – I reminisce and think of our 2 years 1985-87 in Bhutan where archery is the national sport.  We would regularly see competitions and celebrations presumably when good scores were made.
