My favourite ancestor is probably
3 THOMAS WITHERS (1596-1668).He was put in gaol by Cromwell in 1656 after being apprehended by a constable at Market Lavington (probably for holding a religious meeting there), dragged into an ale-house where he was kept until the next morning, & then committed by a JP to the county gaol - where he stayed for a long time with his property confiscated. So much for religious tolerance under the Protectorate!
Later he was fined for refusing to take his hat off in court. "When his persecution was at its height he with other fellow sufferers sent a moving petition to Judge Wyndham & the Salisbury Justices. (Ref: QSGR ed. BH Cunninham p244) `Wee suppose' they pleaded `its not unknown how many & how great are ... the troubles of us who are called Quakers which ever since wee were a People have beene inflicted & are yett likely, if the Lord open not people's hearts, to be continued against us.' The petition draws attention to the injustices heaped upon them & speaks of `the sighes & teares which our long bondage have produced.' At the end comes an entreaty `Let not our words & desires returne in vaine but favour us so much as to answer our complainte which we hope & believe will not be forgotten in the records of heaven.' But the sighs & tears went on; the words returned in vain. Worn out with imprisonment & ill treatment Thomas died 4 years later when only 46.
GANDY says "In his earlier unregenerate days this Thomas seems to have been a pugnacious person, in trouble with the Manorial Court, disputing a right of way ..." He was fined "for stopping up a public footpath must pay 12 pence & make it good".
His wife and son 33 THOMAS WITHERS THE QUAKER (1624-1684)
were also well-known Quakers. His mother was buried in 1678 in the Quaker plot near the Gallows Ditch, Devizes. She left this son "40 sheep & my best brasse pan & my best brasse pot". `Like his father Thomas refused all compromise with conscience. Called on to swear his fealty to John Methuen now Lord of the Manor, he `Say'd these English words "He could not swear." Therefore he was not admitted to his land.' (Ref: Court Book for 1681.)
Then there was
122 Thomas SLOPER, MA, Vicar of Bishops Cannings in Wiltshire 1504-1537.He loaned 40 pounds to King Henry 8, but did he ever get it back? I doubt it! He left his 3rd best woodwind to the poor people of the parish of Bishops Cannings: lucky them! Reminds me of
B3 John WITHERS the Elderwho died in 1637 leaving his "second best breaches" to his brother John WITHERS the Younger!
One of our most accomplished ancestors was Bridget SHERWOOD nee HEAD b 1615 Beenham, Berkshire's 1st recorded female doctor.

Who is documenting YOUR family history?
If you have material on your family you want to store as an ascii (text) file, the way I'd suggest is you have 4 files, one for each grandparent. This has the great advantage that it's easily updated & easily printed out. Start with the furthest back you can go, and create a descendancy chart from the initial couple. You'll need to decide on an order for their descendants. I label the initial couple as 0, their children as 1,2,3,..., and their children as 11,12,13,...,21,22,...,31,32,33,... Somewhere in the file you could have an index of placenames and an index for surnames.
You might like to search for your favourite surnames in the surname indices of my family trees. PRIVACY ISSUES The primary purpose of these family trees is to preserve the history of the families and to enable contact between members. So I include living members and a method of contact if I can. If for any reason you would like your contact details excluded please let me know.We are of course all related - one gene pool. 600,000 years ago from a pool of only 3000 individuals, our species homo sapiens diverged from the Neanderthals. Sadly, they died out 28,000 years ago. 6 million years ago, our ancestral species diverged from the chimps. And so on, back to the proverbial slime & the 1st single-celled forms of life about 2 billion years ago. Our planet is 4.5 billion years old, & our star just a little older, but is half way through its life. So life on earth has maybe only 2 billion years to go. - We'd better get on with it, and stop destroying life by burning fossil fuels, cutting down our forests, & dumping in our oceans.
FREE SOFTWARE familysearch offers PAF. www.myheritage.com/family-tree-builder looks like a great program.
NUMBERING SYSTEMS USED. Everyone gets an ID number and a generation number. These make it easy to search up for parents, grandparents & sibs, & down for sibs & children. The number at the start of the line indicates the order of descent from the initial couple have ID 0. For example at hughes.html these are 0 0-Mary WITHERS daughter of Thomas WITHERS & Elizabeth COLLETT. m 12.9.1713 Chichester,Chester/Delaware, PA. sp-William Parson HUGHES/HEWES Their children are 1 1-..., 2 1-, ... So their ID numbers are 1, 2, ... and their generation numbers are 1. Similarly the children of say ID 52 are 521 3-..., 522 3-..., 523 3-,... and so on. For ease of reading, a space is inserted after the 5th digit. So the number before their name, for example 2- , is their generation number, counting that of the initial person as 0. So if u want the parents of person ID 496 3-xx, search upwards for 49 or 2- or 49 2- Warning: the number of blanks between 49 and 2- may vary.
WHAT'S NEW? 9.6.2016 Thanks to my 3rd cousin Gilly WOOD of Sussex, ID 11355 4134 at 2. of deane.html, I just found out that we are 7th cousins to the father of Lady Diana SPENCER. She is 7th cousin to our children. We are also related to Fergy and the Queen Mother.
