Royal Family Ties (pt 1) to RIPLEY

***9/27/2010*** I have since learned that the Webb Connection to Hannah Bradford Ripley is WRONG. There is no connection here. So.... this is how the Ripley name is tied to the Royal Family, unfortunately, it is not my connection Oops!

Is it our innate nature to try to find ancestral lines to someone famous or important or special? I can tell you that when I first discovered my ties to the Royal Family, I was ecstatic! I was young, I thought it the coolest thing in the world. Once you find the second tie, not so exciting... the third, or your partner's connection... a little weird. Hey, we're related to the same family! isn't that exciting. hmph.

I think my son will survive knowing that his parents are related some 27 generations back. Aren't most of us with English ties, at some point, related to the Royal Family?

I thought it'd be fun to actually mark this heritage, because I can never find it when offering up lineages to the family. So, now they'll be on record and easy to find.
