My name is Susan Maddin and I was recently given a copy of some family history
that was being pieced together by my father. It's in a bit of a mess and I am trying to figure some things out. Hoping you can help. I have been looking at my Paternal Grandmothers family and if I understand what has been given to me correctly it appears that my 7x Great grandfather would be William Courtenay 2 viscount 8th Earl of Devon. I am not sure what all that means however I believe my linage is from his illegitimate daughter Mary Anne Vane ( at least I was told she was illegitimate) My 6x great grandparents are Louis Chevalier and Mary Anne Vane-Courtenay. This side of the family seems to have very strong ties to Quebec, Canada. I'm not even sure I am counting the greats right to be honest and don't even know what I am even asking but does this make sense? The source for a lot of this info is not listed and again I apologize as I don't really understand what I am looking at or even for at this point. I am very new at this. Other names in this lineage are Antel (or Antell ) Chaulker ( or Chalker) Keats Kendall My grandmother was a Strickland ( her mother was a Chevalier) She married a Maddin. Hope you can help and if you need any further info please let me know.
