but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Robinson 1: Robinson of Grantham, Robinson of Newby, sea also Robinson 2
William Robinson, Lord Mayor of York b c1522, d 1616 A brief comparison with the results of the Robinson Y DNA project show clearly a large number of test persons in the range of haplogroup R1b1a2a1a1b4+, which also closely match the results for Clann Gunn and their Wilson and Jamison septs. So it seems resonable to assume that the Robinsons, who seem to have arrived in York about 1450 to 1500 came from the Caithness in the Highlands after the murder of George Gunn, Crowner of Caithness, who died in Aug 1464 with several of his sons in a treacherous attack by 24 men of Clan Keith.

BP1870 identifies the following Sir William as eldest son of Sir Tancred's 9 children and Thomas 1st Lord Grantham as William's younger brother. However, TCP Grantham identifies Thomas as 4th son of the Sir William who married Mary Aislabie and that is supported by various web sites.
