I submitted 89 ordinances to the temple system in December. I'm still working on the descendants of Samuel Farr and am currently working on the descendants of his grandson, Charles Farr. It has been difficult working on Charles' Family because FamilySearch had his sons Caleb and Calvin combined. His son Charles Jr. was confused with him and their spouses. I hope I didn't mess anything up on FS trying to seperate and combine those in this Family but I think I'm on the right track. Unfortunately part of this family goes into the New York black hole of genealogy.
I have also attached two charts from Olive Hovey Freeman out to William Marshall and one to Robert Ros. Both William De Marshall and Robert De Ross were members of the Knights Templar and are both buried in the Temple Church in London. Effigies of William Marshall, his son William and Robert Ros are in the Temple Church. Another effigy of William Marshall is found in the House of Commons in Parliament. William Marshall was one of the forces behind the Magna Carta and his son is listed in the second paragraph.
Author Thomas Asbridge has published a book titled "The Greatest Knight: The Remarkable Life of William Marshal, the Power Behind Five English Thrones" which is a very good read! The book not only paints a vivid picture of the life of our direct ancestor, but also paints a very good picture of how the medieval feudal system worked and the life of being a knight as opposed to how television portrays it.
It was interesting to find that William Marshall's daughter Sibilla married William De Ferrers, 7th Earl of Derby(5th Earl by some), the very line that we have been trying to find a connection to with our direct Farr line! I did a little more searching and found a connection to the Ferrers' line form Olive Hovey Freeman which I will send next month.
Lisa and I will be visiting the Temple Church in London in early May.
