mar 1934 to Emmet Humphreys [born 3rd Oct 1902] and had issue.
Eibhlín Humphreys (nee Sigerson Piatt)
was my grand-aunt.
I knew her,
and talked to her about the family tree before she
died in 1986.
Many years later, I discovered she had a Royal Descent.
Descent from Henry III (disproved):
Descent from Henry II (proved):
- But, immediately, in 2014, I discovered there is another Royal Descent,
from Henry II,
which is shown here.
This seems good.
definitely descends through her mother from Henry II
through her father
from Henry I.
- The line from Mary Gye down to Jeffrey Manning seems good.
- The Manning history does not show a daughter Mary:
- However, it does seem that there was a daughter Mary:
Doty-Doten family in America
says Samuel Hull married
Mary Manning, dau of "Joeffrey Manning" and "Hepsaba".
The Hull family in America
shows Samuel Hull marrying 1677
to Mary Manning, dau of Jeffrey Manning and "Hephsibah Andrews".
Note there is a 15 year gap in the children's births,
which indicates Mary died soon after 1687
and the later children are of Samuel's 2nd marriage.
This would explain why Mary is not in her father's will of 1692:
she was dead.
The proof of the connection seems to be the marriage record.
of the 1677 marriage of Samuel Hull and Mary Manning
lists her parents as "Jeffry" or "Jeff" Manning and "Hep".
This is from
"New Jersey, County Marriages, 1682-1956"
(thus titled, even though it includes pre-1682 marriages).
This seems like proof, though it would be nice to see the original image.
