As I mentioned I am reading DEVIL'S BROOD which is packed full of interesting bits of history. It is interesting that Eleanor's sons were knighted so late, the politics is very interesting to…Continue

That's Liese. I did not spell my own name correctly. Sorry.

Hi. My name is Lise Ricketts and Eleanor of Aquitane is my 22nd grandmother. I would love to share with others who have her in their family as well.

My name is Barry Hallett and I live in New Zealand.
I have been researching the Hallett family in London and believe a relative is Francis Hallett who was born in Barbados in 1769. He was the son of Benjamin & Margaret (nee Maker) Hallett. Benjamin was born in Barbados in 1739 and was the son of Benjamin & Margaret (nee ???) Hallett. On searching on the web I found your web-page entitled "Descendents of Eleanore d'Aquitaine - Genealogy-wise" The bio says "4/04/2015 — BENJAMIN HALLETT #158068, b. 18 Aug ... 8 May 1800 in Chilton, England, resided in Barbados, occupation ... ABT 1755 in Barbados, d." I wasn't able to access the web-page.
I would like to be able to see the details of Benjamin Hallett #158068 if that were possible please.

Sorry, Barbara Kim Thigpen, still don't get it.  I am adding in the discussions forum an ahnentafel for Eleanor.  Hopefully you can tell me where/if we differ, thanks.

I have deleted the 1st post. The 2cd is an incomplete list of ancestors of Aquitaine. There are repeats of persons because they are found on different family lines. I have Aquitaine ancestry on maternal & paternal lines; including Eleanor, on both. The 3rd post is a relationship chart from my Tribal Tree on Tribal Pages. I entered William I & then my name. It pulls up everyone in that line, from parent to child; only it doesn't show both parents. I count the number of 'grand's to get the number of generations to William I on any particular line. I only have the persons in that line up to Eleanor, & then added the number from her to him, since I already knew his line.
