Charlotte Prior’s pedigree

My family still carry Charlotte’s DNA and DNA belonging to her parents.

For the past few days, I have been working on Charlotte’s gateway ancestors, and filling in gaps which still exist in my tree, Over the past few years I have identified two gateway ancestors belonging to Charlotte’s ancestry.

A gateway ancestor is a doorway into recorded, published and historically known pedigrees which can stretch many hundreds of years into the past.

Gateway Ancestor One:
Laurence ‘of Godalming’ Elliott (1521 – 1581) is Charlotte’s 6x great grandfather and my 12th great grandfather. 
Laurence was the father of another Lawrence Elliot who famously circumnavigated the globe on board ‘The Golden Hind’ alongside Sir Francis Drake.
Below is a link to an old post, and another branch connecting me too Lawrence Eliot, who I relate too twice. (he is both my 12th great grand uncle and a cousin).
Lawrence Eliot and the Golden Hind

Laurence ‘of Godalming’ Elliott and William Stephen’s (below) are both descendants of King Henry III (1 October 1207 – 16 November 1272).

Gateway Ancestor Two:
William Stephen’s (1670 – after 1698) is Charlotte’s great grandfather and my 8x great grandfather.
William was born in Holborn, London and was the son of Henry Stephens and Cicely Bray, both of his parents ancestry can be traced back hundreds of years through various branches.
