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.

St31. Ranulph 'the Rich' from Normandy St30. Simon de St. Liz, Earl of Huntingdon and Northampton d 1115 m Maud of Huntingdon dau of Waltheof, Earl of Huntingdon and Northampton The earldom of Huntingdon became somewhat of a pawn of political negotiation between the English and the Scots. After Simon's death it was taken by David later King David 1 of Scots then his son Henry. After Henry's death, the title reverted to Simon's son Simon. After his death it then went to Henry's son Malcolm King of Scots then Malcolm's brother William King of Scots then it returned to the third/last Simon de St. Liz. When that Simon died, it went to David, son of William King of Scots then his son John 'le Scot'. When John died without issue, the earldom became extinct. St29-1.

m3. Saier de Quincy of Bushby and had Issue
We show her husbands to follow the cross-references in the sources on those families. However, BE1883 St. Liz, whilst reporting them, does report some uncertainty. We also note that there was mention in BE1883 that Robert FitzRichard had married Maud's aunt Judith of Huntingdon as well as or instead of Maud. TCP Winchester confirms that Maud married Robert FitzRichard before Saier de Quincy but does not mention the marriage to William de Albini.
