Lady Gilberta Godiva le Becket

November 8, 2013 , , ,

St George Cross

St George Cross

My 23rd great grandmother was the sister of Saint Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury.  She is the ancestor of Margaret Tyndale, whose husband was burned at the stake for reading the bible in English.  Although they spend several generations as the official bottlers to the royal Brits (a much more entertaining and lucrative employment), they revert to religion like salmon swimming upstream.    They go on crusades and get crazy over the crown and religion.  My own great grandfather Taylor was a preacher and a Confederate soldier.  You might say it is in the blood.

It appears that we are very distant relatives. A genealogy search came up with Lady Gilberta Godiva le Becket as my 30th great grandmother and during a mildly curious search to learn more about her I found your information! All very interesting, hopefully this will pique my interest to do more!
