I have been doing some research on my family tree, and have been lucky enough to find a fairly complete tree done by another family member.
My oldest direct ancestors on this tree are John Ellis, and Lady Eleanor Howard De Walden. This is seven generations back.
I was quite intrigued by the history of the name Howard De Walden, by in all my research I could not find any mention of Lady Eleanor Howard De Walden.
By my calculations, she was probably alive during the 1600s.
The only information I have is that she was married to John Ellis, with whom she had one daughter, Ellen Ellis. Ellen Ellis married George Jackson, but the name Ellis has been popular in my family ever since.
Any information on her or John Ellis, and particularly the family tree, would be greatly appreciated.
I also sincerely apologize if I have gotten the time period wrong (therefore making this question irrelevant for this site).
