Ursula TWIGGES was born in about 1587 in Devon, UK. She was married to Emanuel BEERE on 23 July 1610 in Modbury, Devon (so she may well have been born there, too). I know that she had at least three children, and am still trying to work out why she named one of her daughters 'Rabage'.
And that is all I know about Ursula. But she is a very special ancestor for a very special reason. She got me interested in doing my family history research all over again. For years, I had wallowed in the frustrations of brickwall after brickwall. Yes, I made a few discoveries along the way. But they only seemed to lead towards more brickwalls.
And then along came Ursula. She is, in fact, my great great great great great great great great great great grandmother on my mother's side, and does not (at first glance) seem to have done anything out of the ordinary. Hopefully, however, the wait was worth the effort, because she has done something out of the ordinary for me, over four hundred years later. She has given me hope. Encouragement that I can discover more. Approval of what I have already achieved.
I love you, Ursula.
