Sophia was the daughter of Mary Clarges and George Norborne Vincent.
Mary Clarges was the daughter of Sir Thomas Clarges, and it's worth a read up on him in the history books, especially if youre wondering where the surname Monck came from.
George Norborne Vincent, Sophia's father, was the First Gentleman Usher to Queen Charlotte, the wife of the Mad King, George III. (the man who tasted her food).
Both of Sophia's grandfathers were also well connected - although Philip Vincent died 4 years previously, he was named as the father of George Norborne Vincent b 1751. Oddly, Norborne Berkeley, a reputed womanizer paid his fees to Eton. Philip had been a Captain in the Royal Navy and is also mentioned in the history books.
I am happy to share what I have on Sophia and George Vincent to anyone who asks. I am yet to discover any interested descendant, which I think is a real shame.
kind regards to whoever reads this.
Kind Regards, Jennifer Coles
Thank you for this amazingly detailed family tree. It is such a wonderful gift to future generations hoping to discover more about their ancestry.
I am wondering if I can speak to Rose Reilly about her work on the Ferrari family in Albareto, Parma, Italy. My great great grandfather, Giovanni Ferrari, was likely born to Elisabetta Figoni and Giovanni Ferrari (he and his brother, Antonio, later immigrated to California).
I am wondering where Rose found her information so I can do some digging myself, hopefully to find Giovanni's date of birth. If my suspicion is correct, I am very happy to add the US lineage to this tree 🙂

In searching for my ancestors, in this particular instance the Vivian family I have come across your website. Please may I congratulate you on this.
It was interesting to see that the previous entry in your guest book was from Theresa Vincent. My mother's maiden name is Vincent and a direct descendant from the Vivians.
Thanks and take care

I am connected to the Coley family and would love to see where we fit in in your family tree! My 3rd great grandfather was Bellfield Coley born in Earl Shilton, Leicestershire.
Hope to hear from you very soon
I did not know how to reply to your reply to original post I made yesterday.
That sounds a terribly complicated relationship! Yes it appears George Harris and Emily Burfitt are my great great Grandparents. My sister has been working on our family tree for a while now, as new information into our family has come to light. We have never known our greater family on this side of the tree until very recently. ( I only ever knew one set of grandparents) We still have a lot to find out.
Thanks for your reply.
I googled lost relatives of mine and came onto your website where you have an extensive Rattenbury family tree, (Alice and Edward would be my great grandparents) how are they connected to your family?
You have part of my family through marriage listed within your family tree, how are you related? You have Max as one of the children to Marion and George, we have no record of this person. Both Marion and George are now deceased. What is your source for Max , is it definitely correct? https://williamsfamilytree.uk/tree/getperson.php?personID=I34689&tree=wft
Thanks so much
You have Thomas Hawkes in your family history on here. He was my Great Grandfather. How is he related to you. Obviously we must be distant related too.
Would be wonderful if you could reply back to me with information. I have been studying my family history for 20 yrs on and off.

My parents Serge & Ann seem to be on your family tree but this is a mistake as we are not related. Please remove them. Thanks.
