This page is here because at some time in the past, my friends asked about it. It is here because it is fact. If you don't care what my lineage is, fine. You don't have to look at it. If you would think me conceited for mentioning ancestors who were famous, please don't read this. I have no interest in vaunting myself on the basis of my ancestry.
The information for the thread from Egbert to Deane Winslow Mather through Robert Spencer is from The Descendants of William Walworth. I might add other branches, but this is by no means meant to be a genealogy tree.
