Edmund Gray of Ketteringham

Recently I received a message for a new DNA match (through my aunt’s kit) with my 8x great-grandmother Martha Wrighte of Norfolk. She was married twice, firstly to Robert Gray (1691 – 1728) and secondly to Robert Poole (1692 – 1749). The DNA match connected to Martha only as my lineage exists through Robert Gray and my cousin through Robert Poole.

The image below shows this connection.

This new match raised my interest in this distant branch of Gray. The surname is one that appears a few times in my tree both paternally and maternally and I have an extensive tree for the family dating back to the Norman conquest. This particular line however has reached a brick wall.

The patriarch of the family is Edmund Gray of Ketteringham and Norwich, my 11x great-grandfather, and the pedigree below showcases this connection (including direct links to my ancestry tree).
