A Change in the Latham Line

Based primarily on Alfred Randolph Justice's Ancestry of Jeremy Clarke of Rhode Island and Dungan Genealogy, Lewis Latham [father of Frances Latham, "Mother of Governors"] was believed to be descended from the Lancashire de Latham family. His father was John Latham "the younger." Dating back to the 1100s or earlier, the line was as follows:

[1] Henry de Latham
[2] Robert FitzHenry de Latham
[3] Richard de Latham
[4] Robert de Latham
[5] Robert Latham
[6] Philip Latham
[7] Hugh Latham
[8] Thomas Latham
[9] Nicholas Latham
[10] Thomas Latham
[11] John Latham Sr.
[12] John Latham Jr.
[13] Lewis Latham

In the Winter 2017 issue of the NEHG Register, Scott G. Swanson offered an alternative lineage for Lewis Latham. Swanson's article is the basis of my Latham update.

[1] Thomas Latham [#10 above]
[2] John Latham Sr. [#11 above]
[3] Oliver Latham [brother of #12 above]
[4] Lewis Latham
