And if you go back to Samuel Alsobrook, son of Samuel, whose mother was Mary Ironmonger, her parents were Thomas Ironmonger and Mary Hux. Mary Hux's parents were: John Hux and Jane Gray. And Jane Gray links back to all the royal families of Europe. I don't have the journals, pictures, biographies or autobiographies you're looking for tho, wish I did!
