 Welcome To Our Site - Which is the working upgrade to the site of Brookfieldpublishing Co. (click for link). This site has more capactity, especially with video. Please use the tabs above and below to find information.

 Our efforts involve Education and History Especially Involving  Our Ancestors. The Magna Charta Barons, the leaders especially those identified as Kings or Queens, those with accomplishments during the life of George Washington; these are worthy of recognition. Their achievements benefit all!

Remember To Respect the Accomplishments of Our Ancestors as our Descendants May Respect Ours

There are several initial questions: 
Why Join A Lineage Society?
How to Join a Lineage Society?
What the Lineage Societies Are Doing?
The taps provide ways to find the pages for the Barons, the Immigrant Ancestors we are familiar with (including some of their distinguished ancestors); ways to order sypplies and especially media, including video and transcribed text.

We hope you enjoy our Site.

The Magna Charta Barons at Runnymede Home Page

    This is the beginning of a project to provide profiles and biographical information about the Barons who were at Runnymede in June, 1215 in support of the Charter. The planned format is to eventually have a page for each of the Barons.

    The 25 Surety Barons, listed in the Magna Charta, of whom 17 have left issue who survived, have received considerable genealogical attention so that the focus of the information on their pages will be biographical and historical.

    The additional 200 Barons who are preliminarily listed below have not, to our knowledge, received the same attention from authors who have published genealogical research. The focus of the information on their pages will include some genealogical information as well as the biographical and historical information.

This information concerning the Barons is based on the best information which is available to the author of this page. Should any viewer have additional information which might enhance the page, please either write or E-mail the information to the applicable address on the Society Home Page including the recommended changes.    

We recognize that recent developments in technology have expanded our historical horizons by enabling researchers to have increasing access to information. We encourage the historians and genealogists among our viewers to undertake research projects concerning the Barons which will utilize the additional information.

    Please furnish the information either using E-mail or on a 3 1/2 inch disk using either WordPerfect or Word. References should be included for all information and permission should be obtained for all copyrighted information. The Society reserves the right to edit all material prior to inclusion on the Site and requests the copyright for original material. If there is conflicting information, the Society will either leave both points of view on the Site or, if that would lead to confusion, then the Society will present its conclusion with a footnote explaining the conflict. Recognizing that new information is available from time to time to historians and genealogists there should be some lively debate on occasion.

The 1994 Society Newsletter included a listing that Charles H. Browning who died in 1926 presented of Barons and others who he indicated were in arms to procure the Great Charter of Liberties from King John A.D. 1213-15. I am listing the longer of two lists excluding the 25 Surety Barons and Roger de Montbegon who was an original Surety but was replaced by Roger de Mowbray. We have not been able to ascertain his source for the listing. Since most of the members of the Society are descended from the Surety Barons and not these additional Barons, we have encouraged our members to undertake additional research to establish that these additional Barons were at Runnymede and to provide information concerning each.
