Henrietta Maria Tilghman

My Tilghman connection goes back to Henrietta Maria Tilghman, who m. George Robins in MD in 1731. According to the 1962 edition of Stephen F. Tillman's book, this ancester was the daughter of Ana Maria Lloyd and Richard Tilghman. He was the son of Mary Foxley and Richard Tilghman. He was the son of Elizabeth Packham and Oswald Tilghman. He was the son of Susanna Whetenhall and Richard or William Tilghman (Not sure why that is not definite).

Now, Susanna was the daughter of Dorothy Fane and Thomas Whetenhall. (His family line goes back to the Plantagenet kings of England). If I have read the records correctly, there was also another daughter named Anna. She married John Sanders. They had a daughter named Anna who married Christopher Tilghman.

If I have my families straight, then both lines of Tilghmans go back to the Plantagenets. Can anyone confirm this for me?

Also, if anyone else is descended from Henrietta Maria, I would be happy to share my descendants list. You can contact me at
