Dinosaur suffers with what is know as selective hearing, it’s quite common in men so I’m told. LOL
If you think I’m a terror you should be a fly on the wall when Dinosaur has a mad fit. The superglue incident was one of them.. Lets just say it was the best 3 days of silence I had.
Now there’s a thought perhaps I could superglue old Lard Arse to the side of a ship and then torpedo him. Hmm thought appeals…

Hi Boleyn, have you got any further with you family tree how amazing to have possibly found a link to Thomas Culpepper. I imagine it has been very exciting discovering where you came from. Also, you are very lucky to live in Kent surrounded by all that history.
For everybody else who logs onto the AB forum have any of you discovered anything exciting in your family tree I’d love to hear about it if you have, for myself as far as I am aware I have no links but I have not got around to researching my tree maybe I will one day.

This is very weird, it seems as if everyone on here, has a root somewhere in the Tudor Era, ergo making us all siblings somewhere along the line so many times removed….
I haven’t had a lot of time to explore the Culpepper connection as yet Tudor Lady too busy reseaching other things at the moment, and getting everything sorted out for going on holiday, which I’m looking forward too. Going camping in Wales for 10 days.
Kent is a amazing place and as you say it’s full of history.. The house where I live although it was built in 30’s is actually built on Darnley land as in Henry Lord Darnley who married Mary Queen of Scots. He owned a lot of land down here so was a very rich man when he married Mary. His country seat was in a place called Thornbury, which is just outside a town called Bromyard, on the Welsh borders, and strangely my mother lived in a bungalow on the Thornbury/Darnley Estate.
I believe that another of our Boleyn house guests doesn’t live too far from there either.

Hello, I am descended from Lady Margaret Butler, Anne Boleyn’s paternal grandmother. According to my research she was married to a Richard Bould or Bold. I don’t know if she was married to him before or after William Boleyn. She apparantly had a daughter, Elizabeth Bo(u)ld who married a Thomas Chase, and their GGGranddaughter Sarah married Curmac Annis who is my 8th GGrandfather on my father’s side. I am still trying to find proof of this marriage, if any one else knows anything about it I would appreciate it if you contacted me. Thank you.
UPDATE : I am Anne Boleyn’s 2nd cousin, 14x removed.
