William Blake – romantic poet not accepted in his own time — must be a cousin!


William Blake is reported to be my 5th cousin, six time removed, through MRCA William Lane (1580-1654), the proposed grandfather of Hannah Baker (1638-1717), my 8 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  So, added to the TO DO list from yesterday, I need two more generations to prove out in Jolly Old England.   I had better start saving for a long research trip!

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
