Back to Blighty, with Matilda ... my Dad once said, "let's talk about a family bush, rather than a tree". I've read the Caesar Rodney papers at Deleware (and his connection back to Bath England via his Dad, William (circa 1661), including Sir Edwards fascinating account of the history of the English "original" branch of the Rodeneys back to earliest times, i.e., the Norman Conquest in 1066. My thrust now is back beyond that mercenary knight Sir Edward de Rodeney who came to England with Maud the Empress, in 1095 (give or take a year or two), towards Germany given the Germanic eagles on the crest ... and up to North Scotland for our branch of the bush. I would love to hear from those interested.
Cheers to all
