Ancestors of Margaret Gaverigan with extensions to Cornwall pedigreed families (Great X12 grandmother of Graeme Legg) - First Page.

This page details information about the ancestors of my paternal great x12 grandmother, Maraget Gaverigan, born in 16th century Cornwall and who married my ancestor Henry Edwards. Some lineages go back to the 11th century. This initial page covers the index of names plus details on previous five generations from Margaret (great x13 to great x16 grandparents inclusive). For further extensions see the Visitations of Conrawall website.

The majority of the information in this page has been extracted from the earlier entries in the book "Herald's visitations of Cornwall" (initially prepared c. 1620), and as such the lines of descent are only probable, and not proven positively without further collaborative evidence. For further extensions see the Visitations of Conrawall website.

The information on my ancestors is spread across ten entry pages for ease of download - the initial page comprises an index of all ancestor surnames linking to tables detailing ancestry (each linking to the details of the concerned individual. The next page provides details up to grandparents (maternal) or great grandparents (paternal), a table of birth place distributions and a list of relevant external links.
