This page is an appeal for information regarding my mysterious third great-grandfather, Thomas Bridgwater, who was born circa 1823 in Stoke, St. Milborough, Shropshire, England. His was the illegitimate son of Hannah Bridgwater(s), and I am still searching for the identity of his father.
If you're interested in royal genealogy, and in particular, how royal, prophetic and noble lines can descend to the present day, then I recommend that you check this out. It shows my lines back to diverse royal and prophetic families. You may be interested to know that many thousands of Europeans today descend from the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him and His descendants), including myself. Several lines trace back to mythical origins through the traditional pedigrees of various royal chroniclers (in other words, it is the result of the fantasy of medieval and ancient genealogist revisionists, rather than mine own fantastic imaginings); to such figures as Adam & Eve, Hercules, Zeus, Woden and many others.
Detailing my descent from the Prophet Muhammad (pbuH), the Shiite Imams, the Babylonian Jewish Exilarchs, the Royal House of Judah, the Cohen High Priests of Israel, the Prophet Zoroaster (pbuH), St. James the brother of Jesus Christ (pbuH), the Hindu Avatar Lord Ramacandra (Rama), and even the ancient Hellenic prophet-king Hercules (Heracles).
This page is about my eleventh great-grandmother, Susan Clinton, Lady Fynes (b.c. 1602), daughter of Thomas Clinton, 3rd Earl of Lincoln (1571-1619) and Elizabeth Knyvett, who moved to New England with her husband, John Humphrey in about 1634. This page shows her (at least) sixteen lines of descent from King Edward III.
This is a fascinating book written in 1509/10 by my 15th or 16th great-grandfather, Edmund Dudley, Esquire. He was the Speaker of the House of Commons under Henry VII Tudor, but came under royal disfavour under Henry VIII. He wrote this work as a last attempt to save his life before his inevitable execution. I have now transcribed the preface, introduction and collation, and the full text of his treatise. I hope you enjoy reading this interesting insight into Tudor thought and wisdom.
I have finished the transcription of several unpublished manuscripts of Lidia Zamenhof and Roan Orloff Stone, thus preserving them for posterity and ensuring that they are put to good use. I hope that Esperantists and Bahá'ís alike will take an interest in these monumental translations by the daughter of Ludwik Zamenhof and her dear friend. Both were great champions of the Bahá'í Faith. Lidia's life is a tragic one, which resulted in her dying in the concentration camps of Poland during World War Two. I hope that her work may live on through this site.
If you are puzzling over this unfamiliar word with accents over the letters "a" and "i", this page is probably for you, but the official Bahá'í webpage is also worth checking out; www.bahai.org You'll find lot's of information there. Bahá'í is a phenomenon which is unparalleled in history, and, if its adherents are correct, it is going the shape the future destiny of humankind.
