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!

m1. Judith Austin dau of Thomas Austin of Oxley Staffordshire and Mary Cresswell she m1 William Boothby (1564-1597) of Old Jewry, London, by whom she had two sons and at least one daughter, Elizabeth. m2 William Basset (1551-1601) of Blore, Staffordshire, and Langley Meynell, Derbyshire. By Bassett she had a daughter, also Elizabeth. On the death of Bassett, Elizabeth was taken into wardship, which was purchased ultimately by Sir Walter Raleigh. Judith was apparently pregnant when Corbet died, but the child must have miscarried or died shortly after birth, and Richard Corbet's brother Vincent inherited his estates, the marriage being without issue. However, Judith was still the ancestress of the remaining Corbet line, since Elizabeth Boothby, her daughter from her first marriage, married Vincent's son and heir, Andrew Corbet. Judith long outlived her husbands and chose to be buried at Blore, under effigies of herself, William Bassett and her daughter by him.

The geocities web site identified below reports that this Robert married, went to Connecticut (USA), and died there on 18.09.1695 having had issue there. However, a site visitor (JN, a member of The Corbett Study Group) reported on 30.11.03, with apparent evidence, that this Robert actually died young. As Robert is reported in BEB1841 to have dsp, we accept the latter view and suggest that anyone who claims descent from a Robert Corbet of this generation should contact .
