Thank you so much....I got sidetracked for a bit from geneaology, but am back again.
The idea of two brothers fighting on opposite sides has always intrigues me...of course, we've seen this fairly recently in the U.S., with one brother joining the CSA and the other the US Army (referring to what some folks in Charleston call the "recent unplesantness) But can you imagine the divisiveness in the family, the torn loyalties...the poor parents?!
I tend to favor Newdigate...I've always liked him.
But I was surprised to see it happened before in the Poyntz family, with one brother trying to save William Tyndale from execution, and losing his lands for it, and the other brother not able (or not wanting to risk losing his head)to help him or intercede with Henry VIII.
Thank you again, for setting me off on the right track.
Now if I can find out why Gwentilian Stradling had an illegitimate child with Sir Anthony Woodville...not why, but how it progressed that far. Her father was a Lord, I think. And what would have happened to her? Shunted off into a convent? If you know anything about English history, perhaps you could do me a favor and point me in the right direction again. I'm looking for the likeliest thing that would've happened to her....and thus a chance to find her again.
