Richard Bagot Birth 1227 in Bagots Bromley, Staffordshire, , England Death
Jun 1271 in , , , England
Yes I have been following the male lines in our Hayley line ; but I decided (I forgot why??!!??) to start following the Alice Luella Baggett 1865 - 1954 She would be Grandma Etta Mae Hayley's father's mother:
William M Dikes 1859 - 1954 Alice Luella Baggett 1865 - 1954
had a son----Charles Bell Dikes (among more children) Grandma Etta Mae's father
B: Mar 1867 (16 Feb 1867 per E.M. Hayley) Louisiana, USA D: 11 Nov 1946 Los Angeles, California
Grandma Etta Mae's Mother Susan Birdie Parks
Susan Birdie Parks
B: Mar 1872 Texas D: 1920 Arkansas
wow wow as you know I have been educating myself on the Civil War and the Revolutionary War Now I am in the Crusades and the Hundred Years Wars of England. I can not believe this true accounts I am reading regarding Etta Mae's family ---- therefore our family.
I am sure you probably could easily believe the ancestors fought in the Crusades of the Holy Lands, was part of the WAR of the Roses and participated in some rather scandalous behavior. The Baggots were knights; they were Earls etc.
One of my favorite authoress is Norah Lofts --- I have read all her books --- and never would I have believed at the time that I would find family history that rivaled even the most adventurous of these novels!!
One such scoundrel was the before mentioned Richard's g-g-g- grandson ---
Ralph DeStafford, 1st Earl of Stafford, 2nd Baron Stafford
24 Sep 1301 in Tunbridge, Staffordshire, , England
31 Aug 1372 in Tunbridge, Kent, , England

Lord Stafford married firstly, before 1326, Katherine, daughter of Sir John de Hastang, Knt., of Chebsey, Staffordshire, and they had two daughters: Margaret, who married Sir John of Bramshall (or Wickham) de Stafford, Knight, and Joan, who married Sir Nicholas de Beke, Knight.
He later sensationally abducted Margaret de Audley (1318-1347), daughter of Hugh de Audley, 1st Earl of Gloucester and Margaret de Clare. They filed a complaint to the King, but King Edward III of England supported Stafford. He appeased Hugh and Margaret by creating Hugh Earl of Gloucester. Margaret de Audley and Stafford married before 6 July 1336 and they subsequently had three sons and four daughters, of whom: Hugh, born circa 1336 in Staffordshire, England; Katherine, (1348 - 1361), married Sir John de Sutton, Knt., Baron of Dudley, Staffs; Elizabeth, (d. 1375), married, secondly, John de Ferrers, 4th Lord Ferrers of Chartley; Beatrice, (d. 1415), married, secondly, Thomas de Ros, 4th Lord Ros of Helmsley; and Joan, (d. 1397), married, firstly, John Charleton, 3rd Baron Cherleton.
and so the research goes and goes and never lets up!!! I only have 3000 more stories to go unless of course they lead me to more stories!!!!
