Hi All, I am a descendant of the Poet Themistocles Ch Theocharides. We can trace our family back to a frankish pirate who settled in lapithos, called Sir Nicholas o Igglesos by the Greeks. He married into a cypriot family (Aloukiotis) and became orthodox and his descendants have the names Constantinides Igglesos, Igglesos, Lapithiotis and Theocharides. I am having the document where this is recorded translated but was wondering whether anyone had heard this story or stories like it?

There is also talk in the family records of a descendancy from the Giblet family of the crusades is it possible to trace lines back this far in cyprus?

Thanks J
