Hi, John.


Sorry about the Yorkshire connection, but it gets even worse. It would appear that there are a lot of Laughtons on the Orkney Isles and that they migrated south to England. Apparently, these people are direct decendants of the Norwegian Vikings, and guess what, they have a defective "Y" chromasome In their D.N.A which causes the fingers to be pulled down,claw fashion, LIKE WHAT MINE DOES, This was on a resent B.B.C program called"Blood Of The Vikings, so not only are we yorkist but f---in jocks, this is getting to much I should stop before I start to cry,
Hope to here from you soon, Peter.

P.S. Did you know that one Agnes de Lauton married a son of the Davenports in the year dot.
