Yes, we are interested in learning more about your Harley line.First of all please refer to Genforum message # 503 posted by me in July of 2005.In it I gave Sandy a list of how my husband Phillip is descended from Lord Robert Harley.Below I will briefly list the generations of my husband's Harley family for clarity:
On a lineage chart done in 1925 it notes that "The Harleys are descendants of Lord Robert Harley, Earl of Oxford and Chancellor of the Exchequer during reign of Queen Ann.See encyclopedia and English Histories.Family settled in MD then moved to VA." The first Harley on the chart is:
