Hi -

Appreciate your interest in Mayflower Passenger Richard More, my decendancy of which has been recognized by the Mayflower Society. I have also been recognized by the Society as a descendant of Pilgrims Isaac Allerton and William White.
Richard More was the only Mayflower person (he was about 5 years old with a very bizarre personal history at that time)with proven royal ancestry, which I have been researching for several years. The key research books for his ancestry are Douglas Richardson's Plantagenet Ancestry & Magna Carta Ancestry, both probably available at an LDS Family History Center. There are several other books which extend Richard's ancestry back as far as Charlemagne, etc.

And if you are a descendant of Josiah Dodge, who died 7 July 1805 in Nova Scotia, in case you did not know, he was a descendant of another person with proven royal ancestry, Rev. William Skepper, who was also documented in Douglas Richardson's books. With the marriage of Josiah to Susannah Knowlton in 1739, the lines of the Skepper and More families converge, she being a grand-daughter of Richard More.

If you wish, I can send, by attachment, to your personal e-mail address my 20 page index of genealogical files I have created for the many lines of the More & Skepper families.
The lines of these two men cover a virtual treasure-trove of royal and historic persons of the Middle Ages, and yes Saint (Queen) Margaret is in there. My ancestry index of almost all the names in my over 1100 pages of files covers 43 pages and includes the file locations where they appear, since many persons appear over and over in various lines as well as both More & Skepper lines which meet many times in the files. This index lists about every royal person and a great many famous historic persons from the 11th to 15th centuries.

Much of my personal data on Richard More comes from the book "Mayflower Bastard,.." (which I have in both soft and hardcover)as well as the Mayflower Society book on his family through the first 5 generations. I have also included research conducted via mail with a kind gentlemen in Shrewsbury, England who has contributed to the book "Mayflower Bastard" and the NEHGS.

Also, I recently completed a project which details all the burial places of More & Skepper persons that might be found in Great Britain and Ireland today as well as noting exisiting tombs, etc..

Let me know if you wish my More & Skepper indexes, etc.. sent to your e-mail address.
