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.

Lawrence 1

: Lawrence of Ashton, Lawrence of Sevenhampton, Lawrence of Shurdington, Lawrence of Washington
Thanks to a site visitor ML, 09.06.08 for bringing to our attention the dispute concerning the early generations of this family. We originally followed Commoners in reporting those generations as below in italics but a web site challenges that pedigree and, although we have not viewed the main source quoted by that challenge a work by Schuyler Lawrence in 1935, we have found it supported by VCH Lancashire, vol 8, 1914, Ashton with Stodday.
Sir Robert Lawrence of Ashton Hall, Lancashire a 1191
1. Sir Robert Lawrence b c 1170
m _ Trafford dau of James Trafford of Trafford
A. James Lawrence of Washington & Sedgwick Lancashire

i. John Lawrence of Washington & Sedgwick a 1283

a. John Lawrence of Washington a 1326, d c1360
m Elizabeth Holt of Stably
Commoners omits a generation here.
1 Sir Robert Lawrence - descendants shown below
m Margaret Holden of Lancashire
Roger de Lancaster
The parentage of this Roger is as given in the above-mentioned web site. At least in its report on Ashton, VCH gives no indication of his ancestry.

A. John de Lancaster
B. Lawrence de Lancaster of Ashton, Lancashire
i. John Fitz Lawrence of Ashton
m Elizabeth Holt of Stably
a. Edmund Lawrence of Washington d 1381

Not clear which wife was mother of ...
1 Sir Robert Lawrence b c1371
m Margaret Holden of Lancashire
A Sir Robert Lawrence d 1450
m1 Amphilbis Longford dau of Edward Longford of Longford
Commoners mentions the marriage to Amphilbis. VCH mentions the marriage to Agnes in 1429 and reports that Sir James was 22 when his father died in 1450. We presume that Amphilbis was mother of Sir James and that Agnes was mother of the younger sons.
i Sir James Lawrence of Ashton, Stodday & Standish b c1428, d 1490
m Cecily Botler, heiress from Lancashire
Commoners shows their children as Sir Thomas m. Eleanor Welles, Robert & Cecily. VCH mentions Sir Thomas succeeded by his brother John. TCP Hoo names the 2nd husband of Eleanor Welles as James whom we presume to have been that John.
a Sir Thomas Lawrence b c1466, d 1504
b John or James Lawrence b about 1470 d 1514
m Eleanor Welles dau of Lionel, Lord Welles, by Joan, dau of Sir Robert Waterton
Commoners mentions 2 sons dsp for Sir Thomas & Eleanor, Sir John & Thomas, indicating that Sir John was still alive in 1591. VCH reports that, after John's death in 1514, the "inheritance was divided among a number of families, representatives of his aunts". We presume that Commoners was mistaken and that any children of any marriage by John or his brother Sir Thomas dvpsp.
