The Pelham and Waldegrave connection with the Pilgrim Fathers who emigrated to
New England in the early 1600`s

mayflower

This family tree indicates the connection between the Winslow/Pelham and Waldegraves from the Bures area

Starting with Issac was of no real significance, but I am sure you could project Isaac`s family line to this decade with no difficulty.

Consequently, there is a connection to the early Waldegrave family from Bures, to the modern day USA.

Question:- Is it conceivable the Waldegrave family line taken to New England by
Thomas and Margaret Holmstead ( Nos 14 and 15) can be dated back to the original Waldegraves of 1000AD

Notes:

(14) Thomas Waldegrave (b1574) was the son of (28)Thomas Waldegrave (b1535)who married (29) Elizabeth Gurdon

(29) Thomas`s father was Anthony Waldegrave (b1477) who married Elizabeth Grey
Anthony and Elizabeth lived in "Ferriers", later home to the Herbert Pelham

Anthony Waldegraves father was William Waldegrave, b1462 who married Margaret Wentworth b1453

It may seem tenuous, but there is now a continuous unbroken Waldegrave family line from William Waldegrave, (1462) to John de Waldegrave, (abt 1004)
