Whereas Mrs. Rixford’s earlier work traced the branches of her maternal and paternal lines and the main branches of her husband’s family to the Mayflower and other eminent American lineage societies, this work extends many of those connections to the royal and noble families of Europe. The notable ancestors traced by the compiler include Cerdic, first of the West Saxon kings; Alfred the Great; Robert Bruce; Kings Henry I, II, and III; Kings Edward I, II, and III; and many lines through Charlemagne, Louis I, the Earls of Warren, the Dukes of Normandy, the Royal House of Portugal, the House of Capet, the Counts of Anjoy, the Kings of Jerusalem, and more. In the same volume Mrs. Rixford also shows how several Mayflower lines are connected to all the members of the Vermont Society of Mayflower Descendants. If you have an interest in one of the following royal, noble or Mayflower households, this book may contain the link you are seeking: Aquitaine, Angouleme, Anjoy, Baskerville, Beauchamp, Bray, Bulkeley, Capet, Castille, Cheney, James Chilton, Francis Cooke, Courtenay, Rixford, De Vere, Farleigh-Hungerford, Devereux, Douglas, Drake, Eaton, Ferrers, Fitz-Alan, Flanders, Graves, Greene, Gregory, Hainault, Heydon, Johnson, William Latham, Lawrence (John and Isaac), Lisle, Marshall, Milbourne, Moore, Mowbray, Phelps, Port, Province, Rogers, Russell, Seymour, De Spineto, Smith and Georges, Sir Henry Smith, Stanley, Throckmorton, Tailefer, Vermandois, Warren, Washburn, Washington, Winnington (Wynnington), Gov.
