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.

Thorpe 1: Thorpe of Ashwellthorpe
Thorpe comes from an ancient Germanic word common in one form or another and appearing in German "Dorf" of village, hence it is a common family name in the regions of England that formed part of the Danelaw. According to 'The Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Place-Names' 4th Edition 1960, ISBN 0-19-869103-3, in Old Danish 'thorp' means "a smaller village, due to colonization from a larger one" but goes on to indicate that it was used often not so much for villages as "outlying, dependent farms belonging to a village".

TCP reports just one marriage for Edmund, to Joan Baynard, mother of Edmund. Visitation Sussex, Echingham shows 2 marriages: to Joan dau/heir of John Ashpod, mother of Edmund, and Joane dau of Thomas Bannard, mother of John and Elizabeth. Visitation Norfolk, Tilney shows just 1 marriage: to dau/heir of Sir John Aspall, mother of Edmund. The dates for Joan Baynard are as given by TCP, leading us to presume that any marriage to the other Joan must have been earlier.
