Hello Todd, You said, "Instead of regurgitating the same old baseless assumptions from secondary sources, why not attempt some original research and find the actual parent? Instead of trying to force a misconceived notion into place."
Todd, I am not regurgitating anything, merely asked a question wondering if anyone knew anything about that Lord Pannewell or whatever or whoever he was, whether it was a true person or not, etc.. I was just trying to find out anything I could on the person, real or not. But in answer to your response, when one reads information in a well known book, and many people have known of it or talked about it for generations, then I would imagine that that information would not be considered "baseless". And when a family such as mine hands down stories andnames, and when several people in two or three subsequent generations were named Pannawell Edelen or had it for their middle names or what have you, then I would figure that is not a misconcieved notion.
You know, you might consider your own manners and way of talking to people. Because to me your post just marks you as a cheap, obnoxious smart ass! That description of you is not a baseless assumption either or a misconcieved notion. You proved it such with the way you spoke to me. Take care, David Middleton Edelen II
