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.

'Wortley1': Wortley of Wortley
BP1934 (Wharncliffe) reports that this family was of Norman origin and that the first known ancestor was Alanus de Wortley who married, in 1135, the daughter of the Lord of Wath, near Rotherham. It also reports "An unbroken male descent continued till the death of Sir Francis Wortley, last baronet of Wortley, in 1665." We hope to find and report the early generations in due course but, for the moment, show what is reported on this family in BEB1844.
