Hi Diana, Since we last corresponded, my husband's application for both the Order of the Crown of Charlemagne (OCC) and the Baronial Order of the Magna Carta (BOMC) have been accepted and approved.
I applied for the BOMC through Baron Gilbert de Clare because his grandson Gilbert de Clare married Joan of Acre, the daughter of King Edward I.By doing this I was able to trace Ed's line to both the OCC and the BOMC on this one line thus saving a LOT of work!
I did use Douglas Richardson's two books ("Plantagenet Ancestry" and "Magna Carta Ancestry") as well as Frederick Weis's books "Magna Carta Sureties" and "Ancestral Roots".
I found other references to this lineage in the book "The Crusades" by Zoe Oldenbourg that identified Fulk de Anjou and further outlined the connection to the Plantagenet Kings.
If you have found the references, documentation, and sources to apply to either or both, I can help with contacts, etc. as Ed is now a fully recognized and approved member of both organizations.
