This genealogy lark throws up some surprises, I can tell you!
Only the other day, while imbibing an amber tincture with my good friend, Elias Sagtrouser, I discovered from an app on a small computer, which Meccano was using to find some hideous music, that you can immediately extricate your ancestors at the drop of a trilby hat!
After general mucking about with the handheld, like looking up silly websites, I grabbed the machine from Gloriette, who was in danger of breaking the law, and tapped in 'Sagtrouser', and the following came up in 0.56 seconds, which is some achievement I can tell you!
1947 - present day - Elias Samuel Sagtrouser - purveyor of building and plumbing accoutrements.
1902 - 1950 - Elongine Sagtrouser - spanner salesman.
1856 - 1904 - Elsworth-Beast Sagtrouser - metal detector.
1790 - 1860 - Ebenezer Sagg-Trosser - lead thief.
1710 - 1800 - Eldrick Sargtrimser - incarcerated idiot.
1645 - 1710 - Egbert Zargger-Trarser - pillock of the county.
1592 - 1650 - Erbert Zarggerment - constipation remedy salesman.
1512 - 1600 - Ernest Zaargeertresster - purveyor of bullets for fighting the foe.
1456 - 1516 - Engelbert Zaargertrooser - singer.
1389 - 1460 - Ethelbert Tsangletrumpet - part-time musician.
1312 - 1391 - Ewbac Saplingtrangser - forage merchant.
1267 - 1316 - Eoinker Starborgling - writer of gibberish.
1189 - 1270 - Esprit de Zargster - monk of great renown.
Then there is a gap in the proceedings, probably because we were all laughing and joking, and Gloriette's acreage was in danger of falling out at that stage, but we finally got down to the the most interesting of the lot!
807 - 830 - Eleas the Saggertrous - flint seller and axe maker!
Several rounds of drinks circulated on that revelation I can tell you!
