  • Notes 
    • From a posting from Jack Butler at Genforum.com 11/28/1999 titled "William of Normandy Connection for Sarah":

      "There are two points here. There is a line claimed for the Spencers who take them back to Robert D'Abbetot who accompanied William the Conqueror when he invaded England and who took the name De Spencer when William named him Chamberlain. This line has pretty thoroughly discredited and the Spencers are not proven beyond 1375-1400."

      "Sarah Spencer's mother, Agnes Harris, however, does connect to Royalty - a lot of Royalty. But if I remember correctly, so does John Case, through his mother, Ruth James. Ruth James is the daughter of Rev. Thomas James and this line also connects to a long line of European Royalty. Both lines can be found in a book called "Ancestral Roots of Certain Colonists who came to America before 1700." 1988, by F.L.Weis. The James connection can also be found in the earlier edition of the book called "Ancestral Roots of 60 Colonists who came to New England between 1623-1650."
