SDShad BS: english republicans (63* d) RE: english republicans 10 Apr 02

Well, now, Ringer, that's the problem with not knowing. *grin* My maternal grandmother's Rogers side, with the exception of one marriage to someone who was either Cherokee or Melungeon in the 1700s, and one to someone of (probably) Norman Irish origin in the 1800s, has remained pretty damned Anglo-Norman since arriving in Virginia the 1600s. Whatever it counts for, the Rogers clan (or, if you go back far enough, Fitzroger) were at least "English" for a good bit longer than the Hanover/Saxe-Coburg-Gothe/Windsors have been, having fled Norman Sicily and/or Italy in the 1200s. Anyone know how many Hanoverian monarchs have actually married a "native" since George I came along?

And my paternal grandfather was at least a quarter Baxoje (Ioway Indian to everyone else). Of course, the rest is a mishmash of Irish, Scottish, "Ulster Scots," Swiss, Palatine German, Norwegian, Swedish, Dutch, Jewish, Flemish, German-Russian, and God knows what else, and I'm probably more German than anything else. So who's to say?
