Dodgy claims: the Landed Gentry Drews of Ireland and Devonshire
With evidence suggesting that some of Carol Baxter’s Irish ancestors descended from an Irish Landed Gentry family that itself descended from a Landed Gentry family living in Devonshire in the 1500s, she jumped at the opportunity to learn the skills of pre-Reformation research. It took her on a fascinating journey as she questioned what had long been accepted, and pursued sources that led her to break new ground. This seminar uses these Drew families as a case study in undertaking pre-Reformation historical research.
