Magna Carta Ancestry: A Study in Colonial and Medieval Families - New Greatly Expanded 2011 Edition, Vols. 1, 2, 3 & 4


by: Douglas Richardson
This book provides detailed information about descents from the famous Magna Carta Barons of 1215 for over 200 individuals who emigrated from the British Isles to the North American colonies in the 17th Century. It combines research in original records with the use of published literature to provide well documented ancestral lines for American colonists with Magna Carta ancestry. Magna Carta Ancestry includes all known descents for seventeenth-century colonists from the 25 barons who served as sureties for Magna Carta (or Great Charter), a charter of liberties granted by King John of England at Runnymede in 1215.

Magna Carta


For its 800th anniversary, a new edition of one of democracy’s founding legal documents, with extensive new commentary

Wrested by rebellious barons from a very reluctant King John, Magna Carta set out a series of rights and duties that have been appealed to, ignored, suppressed, and argued about ever since. Here, David Carpenter’s forceful new translation is accompanied by extensive commentary that sheds new light on this illustrious legal document.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
