I was working on my husband's family tree - a cousin of his three times removed, Alice Holt, married John Hulme the son of an industrialist in Bolton called Crompton Hulme. John had a sister called Elizabeth Ellen Hulme and she married William Hesketh Lever and they were Lord and Lady Leverhulme (Unilever - Port Sunlight) as I started to develop this line - various names popped into the tree - ie Parker-Bowles, Bowes Lyon, Winston Churchill. I was sceptical of course, but no everything checked out. A family called de-Trafford then started to appear - one man in particular Dermot Humphrey de Trafford - the 6th Baronet de Trafford.
I found he had married for a second time to Zandra Carandini Lee - sister of Christopher.
How wonderful - I have always been a fan - when I was younger I loved the Hammmer Dracula movies - and one I film I watch with fascination is The Whicker Man - as muy own great grandmother was born in Gatehouse of Fleet and Anwoth in Kirkcudbrightshire near where the film was shot.
I am now working the Lee/Carandini line and it is really interesting.,
Bye for now
