Lord #5270

I am descended from Thomas Lord and Dorothy Bird on both my father’s side and my mother’s side[1].  This means that through this line, my parents are each other’s 10th cousin, and I am a 10th cousin 1x removed of both of my parents.  Thomas Lord #5270 (discussed below) is the same as Thomas Lord #8014 (maternal line).

Kenneth Lord has written a comprehensive account of the family of Thomas Lord, which is an excellent source of information[2].

I am descended from Thomas Lord and Dorothy Bird through two of their daughters:

  1. Anna Lord, my 9th g-grandmother (paternal), is discussed under the heading of Thomas Stanton (1616-1677).
  2. Dorothy Lord, my 9th g-grandmother (maternal) is discussed under the heading of John (of Westfield) Ingersoll (1626-1684).

Thomas Lord is discussed under his own heading in the maternal lineages.
