My Cheke Family Pedigree

Below is a screenshot of my Cheke family connection via my grandmother – Rosie May Janes. The Cheke family had well connected cousins, Sir John Cheke’s descendants married into the ‘Rich family’ a branch descended from Mary Boleyn and in 1610 one of the most famous Duel’s in history was fought on Calais Sands between Sir Hatton Cheke and Sir Thomas Dutton. Hatton was killed but Thomas sustained horrific injuries and scarred for the rest of his life.

It’s a branch of my family worthy of lots more research.
