Walpole info plus tidbit on Sir Robert W

at the Bruce-Grey Genealogical Society in Oxendon Ontario Canada. Oxendon was settled by several families including the Walpoles. There's a book out there about it which includes several photos of early 1900's individuals from the area(including at least two of my great-aunts and my great-great (great?) grandfather Curley Walpole. I can't recall the name of the book though. That's where my grandmother got most of her information for our family tree. Currently we have it traced back to Sir Robert Walpole and I'm not sure how much further back beyond that. By the way, Colonel Robert Walpole was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for most overdue library book. He returned it to the wrong library but it was found 288 years later and returned to the original library.
