comments: Hi all, 
I believe I am connected to this branch via Sir. Philip Courtenay. Here is the line I have researched... I am sure of the branch from myself to about 1571, then the period from Joan Courtenay to Sir. Philip (and hence to King Edward) etc. It's just a few generations in the 16th century which I am not 100% on, due to records not being readily available.

I cannot find who Neal Courtney's dad was. Records say he was an englishman who come to America during the Revolutionary War in Long Island Harbor. Some folks say his dad was Thomas, but how can I be sure. Neal had a son named Alanson of which whose line I belong. Thanks in advance for your help! Sincere thanks, Tami
