Once a Knight is Enough

Knight Genealogy

by Laura Knight

Below are selected extracts of persons in the vicinity of Knights I've found, or connected to them in some way early or late. Curiously, only one Knight is found in this compilation, the surgeon, Nathaniel, while quite a few people on the list - or relatives of theirs - appeared as headrights for either of the Peter Knights, or their connections. Obviously, it is a highly selective list and it is even more selective now since I've only included those names that pinged in my brain when reading them.
