Descendants of Robert Bird I

Today I worked on “The Book”, which is a 3 ring binder, filled to overflowing with family history. The first section is devoted to the Denison/Dennison clan.

Working from handwritten notes, going backwards up the tree, a number of generations were added to one of the grandmother’s branches. Here is the “short” list. It’s rather long, but without unnecessary branches.

ROBERT BIRD I b. ABT 1430, Cossington, Leicestershire, England

ROBERT BIRD II

THOMAS BIRD

WILLIAM BIRD

RICHARD BIRD b. ABT 1531, Freeby, Leicestershire, England (Note: this is the same generation as BISHOP DENYSON.)
