It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

1. Roger de Coigniers of Howton Coigniers and Sockburne, Constable of Durham
A. Roger de Coigniers of Howton Coigniers a 1178
i. Robert de Coigniers of Howton Coigniers a c1190
BP1934 reporting that the Conyers of Hornby family descended from Robert's 2nd son Geoffrey whilst 'Tudor' reports that they descended from his 1st son Roger. We follow provisionally the latter which is supported by the Visitation.

Sir Robert's 1st wife is identified as Joan, dau of John de Melton, Archbishop of York, but the Melton records suggests she was ...
m1 1333 Joan de Melton dau of Henry de Melton, brother of William, Archbishop of York
i John Conyers of Hornby b 1362
m Margaret St. Quintin b 1392, dau of Anthony St. Quintin of Hornby
'Tudor' shows the marriages as to Joan then Aline then Juliana. Visitation shows Joan then Juliana then Aline d 1408, and so apparently the widow.
m2/3. Juliana de Percy dau of John de Percy son of Alexander by Elizabeth de Coleville
The following comes from VCH Yorkshire, North Riding, Volume 2, Parishes - Ormesby.
ii Robert Conyers of Ormesby a 1427
a John Conyers of Ormesby d 1438
1 Robert Conyers of Ormesby
Noting that Visitation Yorkshire, 1563-4, Strangewayes identifies this Robert as "of Horneby in Clyveland Ormesby", we suspect that, apart from Anne reported by VCH, he was also the Robert Conyers 'of Horneby' who was father of Elizabeth.

m Elizabeth de Aton dau of William, Lord Aton
A Robert Conyers of Sockburne b about 1340 d 22.04.1437
m Isabel Pert dau of William Pert by Jone
There may be a generation missing aound here. BP1934 mentions only a 4th son, Sir John who obtained Hornby through his wife, Margaret, dau of Anthony St. Quinton sic of Hornby. We follow Visitation and 'Tudor' in showing that John's ancestry differently, as above. Visitation identifies a son, the following Christopher. The other children are as reported by 'Tudor'.
i Sir Christopher Conyers of Sockburne b about 1380
m Mary Eure d 16.03.1470, dau of Sir William Eure of Witton Castle
ii Joan Conyers b c1402
BLG1952 Dymoke suggests that Joan was daughter of Sir Christopher but we agree with 'Tudor' in thinking that the dates make it look more likely that she was his sister.
