Publication Date



This collection is composed of two pages entitled, “How many ancestors have you?” and contains a list of ancestors (one for each generation and when they were born or died), what rulers in England ruled while each ancestor lived, and how many ancestors you would have each generation for twenty-four generations. The pages were found in William S. Appleton’s “Memorials of the Cranes of Chilton” published in Cambridge in 1868. The pages are undated, and the date is approximated based on the book the pages were found in.
