I'm looking for the ancestry of PHILIP VANCE.Many online family trees show him as a descendant of an ANDREW VANCE who came to VA from Ireland.This immigrant is then shown to be a member of a VANCE family who'd royal descent from ROBERT III, King of Scotland.
Other trees suggest a German descent. The marriage certificate of PHILIP VANCE and SARAH BARTON gives the former's surname as WENTZ.
The information in these trees tend to be without reliable sources or not sourced at all. I'm searching for royal descents in my family and would love to be able to gain entrance into an Old World genealogical organization like the Order of the Crown of Chsrlemsgne.
I only discovered my descent from PHILIP VANCE, SR. a couple days ago.My descent is as follows:
1. PHILIP VANCE, SR. = SARAH "SALLY" BARTON 2. MARY VIRGINIA VANCE = ANDREW Y. BOSTICK 3. MALINDA ALICE BOSTICK = OSCAR BUTCHER HINKLE 4. CLARA AGNES HINKLE = WILLIAM THOMAS KIERNAN 5. MINNIE GENEVIEVE KIERNAN = (1) LANTY BERLIN CARPENTER 6. (LIVING) CARPENTER = (LIVING) WHITE 7. (LIVING) CARPENTER = (2) (LIVING) PIERCE 8. JACOB KYLE CARPENTER (me)
If anyone can help, it would be very much appreciated!
