Once upon a time . . . .

Today's entry will be short and, hopefully, sweet. The only anniversary I could find is the marriage of Marie Culpin and Robert Fletcher.

They were joined in matrimony in King's Cliffe, Northants, today in 1640. That's two years before the start of the civil war which left Ollie C in charge. But I digress, as usual . . . . . . Marie and Robert had three children (that I know of) and lost two of them in childhood.

And that's all I know about them, but I simply had to write about Marie because, according to my computer, she's my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great aunt.

Phew! That was a long time ago.

More soon.
