 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.

                                                                                              This Page will identify various issues and will provide an overview of the Project.

Issues Identified: The reconciliations are listed below. Originally the project of identifying the Knights of the Garter in connection with the ancestral requirements for the Society of Descendants of Knights of the Most Noble Order of the Garter involved identifications from the various sources. The publications in 1984 and 1999 of outstanding books on the Order including a list which is substantially similar to the Wiki list has been very helpful in the verification process.

Process of Genealogical Checking - the Number of Knights refers to the 1999 listing with the adjustments listed below.

The Subtotal above of 987 is the number on the 1999 Listing with the following notes. There is King Henry III, King of Castile (nom. c. 1402) with a duplicate number. The following 3 Royal Knights who have been identified as Companions but for whom we did not find numbers on the 1999 List are:
King Edward III
King Edward IV
The Pretender

Note also: The Wiki list included Ladies of the Garter who were not included in the 1999 list until the 1987 Statute of the Order which allowed Lady Knights:
The Lady Knights included as Companions are:
Lavinia Duchess of Norfolk     1990
Baroness Thatcher                 1995
HRH Princess Alexandra         2003
Baroness Soames                    2005

The 1999 listing included 9 Ladies of the Garter:
