Oh yeah,
I think Annis' maiden name was Lillibridge. There was a Betsey Lillibridge living alone in the house next door in one of the census and then I found someone had confirmed her parents as Amos Lillibridge and her mother as Betsey (Fuller) Lillibridge.

I'm glad I was able to help. I'm sending you what I have for your branch going back to the 1400's. It's in PDF format.

There is quite a bit of disagreement in the early 1600's and 1500's due to the book published by Frederick Clifton Pierce in 1896. His claims of us being descendants of a "Lord" Symond Fiske have never been substantiated, partly because no Fiske was ever recorded to be the Lord of Stadhaugh Manor.

Even if he had been, being a Lord of a Manor wouldn't make him a Peer of the Realm. So, contrary to what some people think, we don't have any known royal ancestry.

Which is fine with me because I'd rather believe I didn't, when I did, than brag that I did, when I didn't. I really dislike the feeling of egg on my face.

Take care,
