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.

Woodrove 1: Woodrove of Wakefield, Woodrove Woodroffe or Woodruffe of Woolley

George Woodrove or Woodruffe of Woolley d 20.08.1592 - continued above
Walker shows both this George and his 2nd son George as born in 1530. We presume that it was his son who was born in that year.
m1 Alice Burdett dau of Richard Burdett of Denby by Elizabeth, dau of John Rockley of Rockley
1. Francis Woodrove or Woodruffe of Woolley dsp 12.04.1573
m1 Elizabeth Nevile dau of Sir Robert Nevile of Liversedge by Helen Towneley
m2 22.05.1559 Margaret Kaye dau of Arthur Kaye of Woodsome by Beatrice, dau of Matthew Wentworth of Bretton
2. George 'Gervase' Woodrove or Woodruffe of Woolley b 1530, d 20.08.1598
Walker identifies George's wife as Ursula, sister of Sir Gervase Clifton of Clifton, Nottinghamshire. However, assuming that Ursula was roughly of the same age as George, and noting that Sir Gervase's father is reported to have died in 1518, the dates make that look impossible.
