Dowty/Grey/Porterfield/Penick Family Line

Updated December 1, 2005

About Our Family Research

This fun endeavor began when I started researching for DAR membership. ALL who are decended from Annalise Penick and Martha Porterfield are eligible for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution. John Rowlett and John Penick are both listed patriots with DAR.

As I continued my research, I found that Mary Mallory (wife of John Penick) was directly decended from royalty- including King John of England, Henry I., Henry II., and Charlemagne (who was decended from Kings of Troy and can be traced to Adam). As a woman, I found the direct decendency from BOTH Fair Rosamund AND Queen Eleanor (two ways) to be fascinating.

The de Quincy family (and others) provide FIVE magna charta sureties from which I am directly decended.

The line is quite fascinating, reaches throughout European monarchies, and is inspirational.

Have fun, my friends/family!
