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!

vi. Eleanor Conyers
see 2. Visitation shows this Eleanor as married to Sir Thomas Markenfeld. 'Tudor' shows an Eleanor of the generation earlier belowas married to an unidentified Thomas Markenfield, and also one a generation later above as married to the Sir Thomas Markenfield linked to, and also an Eleanor of this generation as married to Thomas Tunstall who appears to have married again after her. The dates make it possible for this Eleanor to have married first to Sir Thomas Markenfield and then to Thomas Tunstall.
m1 Sir Thomas Markenfield
m2 Thomas Tunstall of Thurland Castle
vii. Elizabeth Conyers
see 3. Visitation shows this Elizabeth as married to William FitzWilliam. 'Tudor' shows an Eleanor of this generation as married to Thomas Cleseby and also one a generation later above as married to the Sir William FitzWilliam.

Visitation 1584/5+1612, which provides their children, shows the William 'of Marske' who married Elizabeth Cleasby as son of Sir John by Margaret Darcy.
