Royalty & Nobility, Mayflower and Presidents

Gateway ancestors are considered to be colonial immigrants with significant traceable ancestry in England and Continental Europe. Robert Abell and Marie Lawrence both have established connections to British royalty and nobility.  They are considered solid enough to provide membership in societies like the "Order of the Crown of Charlemagne."   Other surnames with possible nobility connections are Hyde and Goodrich but they have not been proven at this time.
Ancestors of nobility who have pages on Wikipedia will have this symbol next to their name.  Clicking on it will go to the page.
A number of ancestors of nobility appear on The Peerage which can be useful as it often provides detailed source material. I link to their record with this symbol.
