Re: Henry Marten (Chepstow Castle C17th)

In theory I am supposed to be related to Henry Marten although I have no documentary evidence to prove this. However, given the number of partners I think it's more likely that I am related than not!

My mother's maiden name is Martin but of course evidence suggests Henry had only one son amidst a whole flock of daughters, and so if the name Marten was kept (and of course altered in later years replacing the e with an i) then a direct link is tentative. If I am related it is probably more distantly via one of Marten's own relations.

I am a great admirer of Henry Marten too - I am trying to obtain more literature on him as I have practically none! I see there are some references in previous correspondance I shall have to check them out.
