The Newmarch Pedigree, written in 1868, traces the life and times of the Newmarch family back to the Norman Conquest, when Bernard de Neufmarche, accompanied William the Conqueror to the Battle of Hastings, in 1066.
Come on an amazing serendipitous journey with the author, as she geographically seeks out the physical evidence through England, Wales and France, as described almost 150 years ago, and in the process discovers, knight effigies, castles, and so much more. Many other families feature in this story, and include, the Wentworths, Fitzwilliams, Mowbrays, Gascoignes, Nevilles, Parkes, Sparks, and many more.
As well as the personal adventure, the history is ‘unpacked’, well researched, and brought to life, through the pages of this book, including more recent history, where it was discovered that 3 generations of ‘The Newmarches’, were either born, or lived in India. Key features of this publication are the many wonderful pen and water illustrations, which brings colour and vibrancy to the story
