The term "gateway ancestor" may one day apply not just to gentry, nobility and royalty but to us members here who have spent years researching their ancestors. Our great, and great, great grandhcildren may start doing their tree and find each of us, and find a torrent of ancestors going back to the 1600s and further back.

I'd make sure all baptisms gave a mothers maiden name, right from 1538, so as to keep track on things in case of inheritance disputes and general mix ups of people in the parish of the same name.
