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!

Ludlow 1: Ludlow of Campdene, Ludlow of Hodnet, Ludlow of Moor House, Ludlow of Stokesay Castle
The family site starts its pedigree with the following Nicholas but notes uncertainty as to whether there were 2 Nicholases or just one. Provisionally we take the latter view.
However, Beckwith at shows more details on descent of the following Nicholas Ludlowe Lu23 =24:
Matthew de Ludelowe Lu24 b. 1210 and Patronilla de Swineton b 1210 presumably dau of John de Swynnerton of Little Sugnall Parva Sugnall and Petronel de Doreslow b c 1176 d aft 1215, heiress of Little Sugnall & Dorslow and sis of John de Swynnerton of Little Sugnall & Peshall, later also of Swynnerton b c 1205 d 1254 and aND Elenor de Peshall/Peshale b c 1220

i. Sir Laurence de Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet b 1300, d 1353

Visitation inserts an additional generation here, a William.

m Maud
i Sir Richard Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet, Sheriff of Salop b 1430, d 1498
The family site shows Sir Richard's wife as Alice Greville shown as mother of John but the Visitations identify her as Isabel Pembridge shown as mother of John. We presume that he married twice.
m1/2. Alice Greville dau of Sir William Greville
m2/1. Isabel Pembridge dau of Sir _ Pembridge
Not known which lady was mother of John. One section of Visitation shows an additional generation, a John who by dau of Sir Robert Corbett was father of the following John, and then goes on to show the John who married Elizabeth Gray sic as father of Sir John who by Isabella, dau of Sir Roger Vychan was father of Anna, Elizabeth & Maria dsp, m. Sir Richard Corbett. That is corrected in the other section of Visitation which supports what is given in the family site.
a Sir John Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet
The shorter but apparently more reliable section on this family in the Visitation adds a note to report that there is doubt about the identify of Sir John's wife, suggesting that she may have been Elizaebth, dau of Sir Roger Kynaston of Hordley by the only sister of Lord Powis. We provisionally follow the normal identifification which shows her as ...

The family site ends one pedigree with William d 1478 and starts another with William b c1399, d 1478. Noting that the date of birth of the William on the second pedigree is after the date given for this William's father's death, we assume that this William was father of rather than the same person as ...
