Hi Laura -

I thought your name looked familiar. I checked your posting history and I see that you contacted me in early April via the Hunter Gen Forum with a similar request and I responded that I, in effect, needed your e-mail address and you never did reply to me that I know of. At least not in the Gen Forum, and if you would have sent an e-mail to me at I'm sure I would have sent the TAG article you're looking for right away.

Your address in the Gen Forum comes out "hidden" so I will need to know what it is if you wish to have the 4 page TAG article that has the Hunter/Hollingsworth family information in it as this needs to be sent as an e-mail attachment.

And over the past several years I have researched Richard More's royal and noble ancestry via numerous proper genealogical sources other than Ancestry, which I have often found to be quite unreliable. My work on his ancient ancestry has been quite extensive, and with so many noble and historic persons found, that I could only chart (in narrative format) his most illustrious ancestors, largely Norman and British of the medieval era. Also, Richard More shares ancestry with another 'gateway ancestor' Rev. Wm. Skepper, whose line meets his in a 1739 marriage of their descendants. Together, their narrative noble ancestral records in my files come to over 1500 pages, with about 2,000 ancient ancestors listed.
If you wish to see a file list that I have compiled on Richard's (and wm. Skepper's) noble ancestry I can send that also.

Two books put Richard's own personal family into correct perspective, quite bizarre although it may be -
1. Mayflower Families Volume 15 (that he shares with James Chilton's ancestry)
and the following one, which is quite detailed and fills in much that the Mayflower book left out -
2. Mayflower Bastard - A Stranger Among the Pilgrims by David Lindsay pub. 2002
