Favorably reviewed in The New York Times, the London Times Literary Supplement and The American Genealogist.
This book reveals one family for 31 generations from William the Conqueror in 1066 through Princess Elizabeth Plantagenet, daughter of King Edward I of England, through English royalty, nobility and gentry, through statesmen of the Elizabethan Age, through high government offices in Ireland, to Walsingham Moore who came to Canada in 1817, then down one line of his estimated 55,000 American descendants alive today (with many surnames) to contemporary joyous professional and personal lives in Manhattan. Many of us share part of the same history and genealogy but lack the records to know it. All will revel in this human, exciting and true story.
Thomas R. Moore, the distinguished New York lawyer, author and connoisseur, received his B.A. magna cum laude from Yale University and his J.D. from Harvard Law School. His deep knowledge of biography, genealogy and history and his ability to present a story clearly and compellingly captivates his readers from beginning to end. Recently he was granted a coat of arms and created a Knight of St. John by Queen Elizabeth II and inherited his ancestral title of Lord Bridestowe.
