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!

Stafford of Sandon

: Stafford of Bromshull or Bromshill, etc, Stafford of Grafton, Stafford of Hooke, Stafford of Sandon, Stafford of Southwick Some web sites identify this William as the William of Bishop's Frome who was father of Margaret who married Sir George Vere and was mother of John, 14th Earl of Oxford, and others. However, TCP Devon reports that the heirs of his son Humphrey were Humphrey's cousins, the 3 daughers of his aunt Alice, which suggests that he had no sister who had issue.
1 We still have some uncertainty as to the way we are showing how certain branches of this family interconnect with others. We have been greatly helped by input from a site visitor RS, 19/24.01.05 who provided us with the results of his research into the International Genealogy Index. However, whilst the IGI can very helpful, it is notorious for occasionally including unproven assumptions and thereby sometimes discrediting itself. As with a number of sources eg the Visitations, we take the view that it would be silly to ignore the IGI but that it would be unwise to follow it when another source contradicts it provided, of course, that that other source has some credibility itself.
2 The IGI and various web sites refer to the next few generations as 'of Sandon'. However, some other web sites mention Bromshull, spelled variously as Bromshall or Bromshill or Bramshall or Bramshill. BE1883 Stafford of Suthwik and Devon starts with Sir John, son of William of Bromshull "and a descendant of Hervey Bagot and Milicent Stafford" who are shown on Stafford01 as great-parents of the following William. BE1883 also shows that Sir John's younger son Ralph was, by Margaret Stafford, ancestor of the Staffords of Grafton. The IGI and various web sites show that Ralph as son of Sir John of Sandon.
St24. William Stafford of Sandon = ? William Stafford of Bromshull b 1278, d 1307
m Isabella Stafford dau of Robert de Stafford identified by the IGI and some web sites
St23 Sir John Stafford of Sandon = Sir John Stafford of Bromshull b about 1320
m1 Katherine Hastings mentioned by the IGI
m2 Margaret Stafford dau of Ralph de Stafford, 1st Earl of Stafford
IGI suggests that Margaret was sister rather than daughter of the 1st Earl but BE1883 seems more likely.
St22 Sir Humphrey Stafford b about 1350 IGI shows this Sir Humphrey as third son of Edmund de Stafford, 1st Lord. BE1883 shows him as the heir of Sir John son of William of Bromshull and elder brother of the Ralph who was ancestor of the Staffords of Grafton and also those of Blatherwycke. We follow BE1883 which identifies his wife merely as daughter and heir of _ Greinvill. IGI identifies her as ...
