In Reply to: Sir (Saint) Thomas More descendants by Martin Wood of 418

Hello Martin Wood,

I just received your book about Thomas More's descendants the other day, and I would like to congratulate you with your book and let you know how much I enjoyed reading it. You must have done a tremendous lot of work to find all these details!

Of course, I was also pleased to see that the rumour about our descendancy from Sir Thomas More probably is more than just a rumour! My ancestry goes through John Ullathorne who married Mary Binks. I am a descendant of their son Thomas Ullathorne (Bishop William Bernard Ullathorne's uncle) and his wife Abigail Cowling. My great grandmother's mother was Jane Ullathorne, born in Selby abt 1846. Her daughter Gertrude Warbrick (born Oldham 1885) emigrated to Norway in 1910, married a Norwegian man and did well exporting sardines.

If you would like to know more about St Thomas More's descendants in Norway, please drop me a line :-)

Kristinn, Oslo, Norway
