The Fitz Randolph family has a fascinating history, beginning with its origins in the early Middle Ages and traced through centuries of English nobles and royalty.
Researches into the records of old revealed the Medieval emergence of the Fitz Randolph name, and the clan's frequent and enduring presence in the noble houses of England. From Norman times onward, appearances of the name are mentioned in records - through meticulous research of available writings, the author pieces together strains of the lineage. By the 19th century, descendants of the Medieval-era Fitz Randolphs are found in several parishes across England, whilst several members had travelled to the North America to establish a new life in the colonies.
The investigation is illustrated with family trees and photographs of relevant locations. Acknowledging that reliable familial records were in short supply prior to the mid-16th century, the author concedes that the pictures he has compiled is incomplete. However, as a genealogical effort and supplement to further study into the subject of the Fitz Randolphs and other minor nobilities of England, this book is a reasonable resource.
