Recordkeeping in England tended to be better than in most countries on the continent, but massive purges of records through war, fires, flooding and the like makes verification of something like that awfully difficult.
But again, I'm not saying it's impossible.
In looking, the woman doing my research found a previous person had traced our linage to one of the King Henry's; and another line to John Rolfe.
The only problem, she found, was that the work had been done backwards - in other words, the person had gone from Rolfe and attempted to trace back to modern day. In doing so, many mistakes can be made.
The research we are doing now do not trace back to any King Henry. We have found traces of a Rolfe, but have not yet traced it back to the John Rolfe married to Pocahontas.
