Pursues The Ceaseless Way

Length: 550 pages5 hours


This seminal history of an English East Midland family takes us by generations from a 1939 country marriage back to 1042 Normandy, 1610 Virginia, the 1854 Sevastopol Siege, 1861 Sitapur during the Siege of Lucknow and to Passchendaele. It follows 19th and 20th century emigrations into Michigan, New Zealand and Australia. Lives, from birth to epitaph, are rebuilt from fully validated and referenced sources. Underpinned by a wealth of notes and observations drawn from national history, law, heraldry, etymology, classical mythology, literary and theological sources, it is uncompromisingly researched and written with humanity and humour – genealogy at its very best.
