It was very sad to hear of the death of Leo van de Pas in August. He was a great help to me when I was originally setting up this website. You will find his site linked from the Genealogy Page. Leo's passing made me think. None of us are immortal and, although my sons have promised to keep my site running when I shuffle off this mortal coil, things can happen and I would hate to think of almost 40 years of work disappearing. I have therefore decided to feed it all into Legacy and upload it to Rootsweb. I've only just started but it is coming on a pace.

You can find it at :- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=royalannoble .

I've called it The Tree of European Royalty and Nobility, so you can see I intend to add more than the Descendants of William the Conqueror - I think!!

As the database gets bigger so the number of links to other descendants in other sections grows. The input of the linking HTML code is taking as much time to achieve as the original research!! As the object of the site is to bring to those that are interested as many of the Descendents of William the Conqueror as possible, I have had to make a decision to change how this is done. In further the ISSUE SEE  will be followed by the name and a link to the section only and not to the individual person This will add to the time it will take you to find the repeated individual but you can do this by using the "Edit" and "Find on this page" aid at the top of your internet page toolbar. Simple!!

Thank you for your patience and I trust you will understand my reasoning!!

On another matter, some of my writings are now appearing on a  website run by a very dedicated lady names Rebecca Larson. The Site is Plantagenet Dynasty . Become a subscriber and support her excellent work in bring history to the wider world!!

El Cid 1

31 October 2014

There is a whole new section to the website, one that I have been considering for some time. A great hero of mine has always been Rodriego Diaz de Vivar, better known today as el Cid. He had two daughters and they have proved to be ancestors to most of the Royal Families of Europe. I am therefore running the research of his descendants in parallel with that of William the Conqueror. He has his own Home Page and if you click on his name below you will find out more about the project.

Remembrance Sunday

Remember the Glorious Dead

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Wales 4

31 October 2013

Here is a brand new line of descent. I’ve named it Wales as it starts with an illegitimate daughter of “Bad” King John and the mighty native Prince of Wales, Llewelyn the Great. From there it quickly spreads across Europe.

Here are the first three sections.

Trust the beautiful Duchess of Cambridge to be delivered of a son while I'm sitting by the shores of Lake Maggiore, eating an ice cream!! Now I'm back I can upload the small task I have been working on - the ancestors of our future king. Just follow the link from the Home Page. I will not live long enough to see him ascend the blessed throne of England but that is what history is all about - continuity and continuance. I will be history, mere dust, by the time he comes into his own. Generations pass away. The Great War began only 34 years before I was born; now it is beyond living memory. Soon its successor, the Second World War, will go the same way as old men die and their deeds are witnessed on paper and not in memory. I will try to add generations to this part of the site as time goes by. I am also searching the net for images of Prince George's ancestry and gradually creating a database. When it has approached completion I will let you know. I would be happy to supply a disk to anyone interested - but wait for my word.

I wish the young Prince George long life and happiness and may he take his place in the panoply of the monarchy of England. May he hear his peers and people cry, "God save King George!!"

Hi Folks

Some of you will be thinking the site appears to have gone quiet of late. You would be right! We have had some family matters to deal with which have taken a considerable amount of time and are still on-going. In addition I have been working on something which should come to fruition sometime in July!! If you haven't guessed already, you will have to wait and see!!

As a result of a cyber conversation with one of my fellow seekers, I dipped into the seemingly bottomless pit that is my cupboard of “stuff,” and picked up on some research I had done years ago on the descendents of Robert FitzRoy, bastard son of Henry I. He was the guy who led the army of the Empress Maud against King Stephen. Please see my pieces on “The Great Anarchy” accessed from the Home Page under A History of England. Inevitably I found myself lost in the depths of the Middle Ages. Putting a few generations together became six and then a dozen. Yes, you’ve guessed it – a new line has been born! I have named it HAMON after Robert’s wife, Mabel FitzHamon – well, why not! A quick scan through Hamon1 will give you a clear picture of who were the main movers and shakers under the Normans and Plantagenets and their blood is still with us today. Enjoy!!

4 October 2012

I have made considerable additions to Portugal 3.

30 September 2012

Alright, so I got bored feeding stuff into Legacy!! So here's the link to the new, completed Tudor 61.

14 September 2012

There are new additions to Conqueror 42, 45, 53, 60, 62, 66, 129, 133, and 138, plus minor additions to Conqueror 55, 56 and 67.

14 July 2012

I have recently retired so I now have more time to fill in some of those irritating gaps in the database. You will now find considerable additions to sections Conqueror 4A, 4B, 15, 16, 17, and 42. There are small additions to sections Conqueror 7, 10, 13, 14, 34, 38, 39, and 40.

The project of inputting the whole database onto Legacy continues. So far the sections up to Conqueror 67, Clarence 7 and Blois 6 have been input which takes the total number of individuals to just over 20,000. You can follow the progress via the two links below. Still a very long way to go!

15 June 2012

Deep joy!!!! I have solved the problem but have lost five sections of input. Back to the grindstone!

9 June 2012

I have hit a problem - my GEDCOM on which I have been working for almost 3 months has become corrupted (numerous expletives)!!!! I am going to have to re-think. In the meantime I will resume normal service and continue to add to the site in the normal way.

13 April 2012

I refer to my note of the 1st April. Here is the link to the database on GeneaNet  - just click HERE. I have a long way to go before it catches up with the website. I have also placed it on Rootsweb - click HERE.

1 April 2012

As I am rapidly approaching the heady age of 65 and realising that this website will cease when I eventually shuffle off this mortal coil, I have taken an important decision. It will mean taking time out from expanding the site for the moment. The most effective way of preserving the thirty-odd years of work invested in the site is to feed the data into a suitable form of software. This will enable me to produce a GEDCOM that can be placed on a free database host such as GeneaNet. I will also place a master copy of the GEDCOM with the Society of Genealogists in London for safe-keeping. That way the data will not go when I go!

Once the data file is of a sufficient size, I will upload to GeneaNet and add the link to this site. It will provide a different way of viewing the data. I anticipate that it will take up to two years to complete the project so please be patient!!!

This covers just under 5,500 direct descendants of William the conqueror plus spouses and many father's of spouses; in all over 11,000 individuals so far. A very long way to go! These sections have been considerable up-dated as a result. You can follow the progress via the link as at 31/12/2009.

A Happy New Year to all visitors to the site. Let's hope 2010 is better than the last couple of years.

As I said on 15 November, I am feeding the whole database in to Legacy so that I can produce a  GEDCOM. I have uploaded it to GeneaNet, a site I have only recently stumbled across, so you can follow my progress. Just CLICK Family tree Alan Freer - GeneaNet .

Hi Folks

As you know, this is a text site, a glorified word document with hyperlinks. This is fine provided there is some form of search facility. To make the database universal a more sophisticated means of storage is required. I have therefore decided to feed all the data into the Legacy Genealogy program. This is going to take some time to achieve but I will return to adding sections to the site when I get bored with data input!! Once this exercise is complete I can return to full time work on the site while keeping the Legacy version up dated. It is already proving beneficial as I'm spotting small error in the original. I will be able to burn the resulting GEDCOM on to CDs and make them available to anyone who would like a copy.

R.I.P. Harry Patch, the last of his generation. These were the men who witnessed such terrible sights beyond our imagination. My Grandfather, who served 25 year in the Royal Navy through the 1st World War, did not talk of his experiences until the last few months of his life. I sat by his bed as this amazing account of history poured from him memory as if it were yesterday. 

When you consider that a quarter of the males born between 1885 and 1895 died in the war and another quarter were wounded, you realise the price that generation paid for our freedom.

 All hail to Harry Patch – and to George Freer, my Granddad!

Hi Folks

I wish all users of the site, wherever you are in the world, a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

I know the future appears a little bleak with a deteriorating economic situation but I’m an old enough “bunny” to remember previous down turns. It was often the simple pleasures that satisfied; the less expensive joys of family and friends. When things get tough it’s amazing how unimportant that new car or larger house seem.

Christmas is a time to enjoy your family and friends. Delight in that warm feeling of companionship and conversation. Treasure it!!

Every best wish

Alan

I have had an increasing number of requests from site visitors for a "copy of the site." I have considered producing a Word Document but this would amount to several thousand pages and would be virtually impossible to add updates. I have therefore decided to take a couple of months off to feed the data into Legacy 5 and so produce a GEDCOM. This can be burnt onto a CD and would be available for anyone who wishes for a copy. There would, off course, be a small fee to cover costs and postage. In the mean time I will upload it on to Rootsweb so you can see its progress. You can find it on the following link:-

Dear American Site Users

I must admit, eight years ago I thought the American people had collectively gone mad, only to reinforce that state of mind four years later. I realise that as a British citizen I can not hope to be as knowledgeable of US politics as yourselves but I do pride myself on keeping abreast of world and US events, particularly in the economic field.

Let me congratulate you on the election of Barack Obama as the next President of the United States. Over here we don't see him as a black politician, merely a man who just might have judged it right. He may be young, untried, inexperienced. One of our greatest Prime Ministers was William Pitt and he was only 24 years old when he took office. Obama has certainly restored our faith in America. Perhaps you did not realise how much we detested Bush and his policies. In the latter years of his administration he had become a figure of ridicule. That is not what you want in the most powerful man in the world.

Whether you like it or not, as citizens of the leader of the free world, you have a massive responsibility. The other democracies of the globe look to you for the common sense to pick the right man - thank goodness you have done just that!

What you need to do now is to support him. He has a monumental job to do and nothing can be achieved without your united backing and patience. Democrat or Republican, black or white, American or European, all must work together. I am sure, for what worth, as a citizen of your oldest ally, he has mine!

And can we succeed?

"Yes we can!"

For some months now I have been receiving emails from those who have found ancestors on my old "Royal and Noble Families of Britain" database on Rootsweb. Unfortunately this can't be changed or added to. Many of these families feature in the line down from Anne Plantagenet, Duchess of Exeter, sister of Edward IV and Richard III. I have therefore gone in to the Tardis that is my cupboard of "stuff" and come up with a new line! There is something exciting about a new line - it's bit like setting off on a new journey - I must get out more!! So, here it is - RUTLAND. Why Rutland? The first prominent family is the Manners family who became the earls and then, dukes, of Rutland.

An email from a gentleman in California, U.S.A. prompted me to go rummaging in the dark corners of the cupboard in which I keep my small mountain of notes and “stuff.” I dusted off an ancient lever-arch binder, which contained a mass of scribbled notes and diagrams gleaned from numerous sources found at the S.O.G. in London many years ago.

This covered the early generations of descent from William Longespee, Earl of Salisbury, my correspondent’s ancestor. He was the bastard son of one of England’s greatest kings and founder of the Plantagenet dynasty, Henry II (William Longespee, not my correspondent!). Because this features people who lived many centuries ago and are not of the well-documented direct royal line, many dates are logical estimations and whole tranches of the tree are missing – there are simply no records of those involved.

So here is the first section of a new line, the first new line for 18 months.

Sections Tudor 38, 39 and 40 are almost exclusively descendants who have lived or live in the United States. John Parke Custis, at the top of Tudor 40, was the stepson of President George Washington. Being at least three thousand miles away from any primary American source, these two sections are not as complete as I would like. It is therefore up to the good people of the US to assist in any way they can. If you recognise anyone, perhaps one is your grandfather or mother, and you can add to the project, please email me. My email address is on the Home Page. Any help would be most gratefully received!

I have started to compile a database featuring the Landed Gentry of Britain. If you are interested it can be found on Rootsweb.com under the database code "landed." This is at a very early stage but will grow when I fancy a change from William the Conqueror and his descendants! Once it has reached a reasonable size, I will create a direct link from the Genealogy Page.

Lots to tell you today!!

The Lake Maggiore page has been expanded to SIX pages full of photographs of this beautiful area of Italy. There are still a couple of pages to come. This year it seems the Americans have discovered it! There was a whole Art Group there all, no doubt, taking back their own image of the Lake.

I have also started yet another line entitled HANOVER. It stems from Elizabeth, daughter of King James I, and wonders through the nobility and royals of most of the countries of Europe. Eventually it will reach Queen Elizabeth II ("God Bless 'er!!" as we say in England).

This is new and therefore a welcome change!

Hi Folks

I have just received a substantial new source. New sources are two-edged swords - It's great to have a whole load of new lines but, with a text database, it can mean a massive rearrangement of existing pages.  I have therefore decided to bring in an ancillary layer of pages to carry the information. For example the ancillary pages for Conqueror will be Conqueror A1, Conqueror A2 and so on. Where there are only a few names to be added, they will be included in the existing pages. The ancillary pages will be for large tranches of data.   The first will appear shortly when I've had a chance to get my head round all the information!

Hi Folks - If you live in the USA you might like to know that the "Military History Magazine" will be carrying an article by me on Adm. Robert Blake, Britain's first truly great admiral, in their April issue. The additions to the website may slow down from time to time as I am in the process of writing a series of pieces on the Peninsular War. You can find their website here - History Net.
