Royal Families


Marston is hard at work writing the Descendants of Royal Families series published by the Genealogical Publishing Company. His ancestry goes all the way back to the Mayflower, with more than one of his ancestors arriving on that first voyage. Since he also writes genealogical articles (one has been published by the New England Genealogical & Historical Register-New England Historical and Genealogical Register April 1999, Volume 153, No. 610), his time is even less available. He has also published an article in the Mayflower Quarterly.

Coming in 2010 will be the 400 year history of the Watson Descendants.

Are you a descendant of Thomas Dudley (1576-1653), Governor or Assistant Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony from 1630-1653?

Possibly a million or more Americans are directly related to this colonial governor, but have not yet made that connection. The list of over 3,800 names covers only the first five generations of Governor Thomas Dudley's descendants. There are generations of more Americans who can claim his royal and noble ancestry. See if you are one of them.

If so, you will want to own the limited second edition of Marston Watson's 2004 Dudley book, in which nearly 900 names have been added to the first five generations of Thomas Dudley's descendants.
