Family Gorham Plausible Speculations Book Description:

Family Gorham Plausible Speculations is an historical genealogical record of the Family Gorham, which includes a lineage of emperors, nobles, crusaders and clergy from early medieval times to everyday people in contemporary North America. It begins in mid-eighth-century France with Charlemagne through his daughter Rotrude. From there, the story tracks thirty-six generations, all the way to the author’s son Trevor, living in twenty-first-century Canada. Along the way, the reader is treated to tales of medieval nobility and the evolution of the Family Gorham name in northwestern France in Brittany, Maine and Normandy until the eleventh-century migration to Leicester, Hertford, and Northampton, England. The book recounts events in contemporary chronicles because nobility records are fragmentary and rarely place them in their family context. Mainly, they were documented on grants and charters to religious houses of the day. Rather than repeat or reproduce old information, Family Gorham Plausible Speculations employs a methodology that combines historical birth, marriage and death records with existing evidence from newly researched primary sources. The result is a genealogical thread of the author’s ancestry that features special relationships and strong plausible speculation about the lives of this once-flourishing extraordinary Family Gorham, its variants and pedigree. From a 1513 will of a Richard Gorram in Glapthorn, England, for example, we learn that three major branches of the family—the United States, St Neots, England, and the Canadian branches—derived from two sons of Richard, both named John.
