A 'supplementary' entry to a record.

Hope this helps

Welcome to Rootschat,
There appears to be a lot of anomalies in the info you supplied

Is this the Henry J Humphreys and Emma F Green marriage 4q 1919 Poplar?
if so, it would make Emma about 47 years old.

Edwin Walter Lucas Green Born 1862 Bromley Union Motherís Maiden Name Howard

Esther Eliza Lucas Born 1864 Bromley Union Motherís Maiden Name Howard

William Charles Lucas Born 1866 Bromley Union Motherís Maiden Name Howard

Emma Elizabeth Green Born 1872 Bromley Union Motherís Maiden Name Howard

Frederick James Green Born 1874 Bromley Motherís Maiden Name Howard

Arthur Green Born 1877 Bromley Motherís Maiden Name Howard

Jane Ann Lucas Born 1877 Bromley Union Motherís name not listed.

Where does the MMN of Howard fit in?

Does this help?

The mathematics just don't add up.

Lady Rose was my 12th grandmother.


2021 minus 1544 (the year in question) = 477yr timespan.

The general concensus is that a generation is 25yrs (average)

Divide 477 by 25 = 19.08 generations.

Surely, your 19th generation equals your 17x Great Grand Parents
and not your 12th as was stated.

Individual DNA from your 12th grandparent would be less than 6/1000ths of a percent
considering that you descend from 16,384 individual 12x Grandparents.

Looks a lot like wishful thinking.
