Lynn, I'm not sure who your parents were, but this may be interesting to you.I have a link back to the Plantagenets through John of Gaunt.Mainwaring was one of the names connected to the Plantagenets.I have an Emma Mainwaring B. 1352 who was married to Richard Winnington. Her father was William Mainwaring b. 1316, William Mainwaring B 1286, Roger Mainwaring B 1263 and William Mainwaring B. 1225. They hail from Cheshire England.So we could be related. Tks Don..
