Happy 474th, Grandfather Botsford!

It was 474 years ago, 6 October 1545, in Charlgrave, Bedsford, England, that my 11 times great grandfather, Richard Botsford was born to John and Agnes Botsford.  On 30 October 1569, he married Neyle also in Charlgrave.  The couple had 3 children mentioned in the Botsford of Chalgrave:  Child (bur. 3 August 1570), Henry (1571) [my 10 times great grandfather], and Edward (1579).  Grandfather was buried on 10 April 1607.  Not much else is known about this generation — more is recorded as Henry weds and his descendants eventually sail across the Atlantic and settle in North America.  But, it is kind of interesting (well, to me) to be able to trace back 500 years in a single line of my pedigree!

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.
