Let’s start by examining Jane’s grandparents to clarify the eight lines of research into her origins – Allens, Perrys, Cullifords, O’Sullivans, Stiles, Cranes, Hilliers, and Pennys,

You will see that my success rate proved variable, happily reaching back to her GGF11s for the Allens, Stiles and Hilliers, to the GGF9 of the Pennys, GGF8 for the Cranes, GGF5 for the Cullifords, but only able to reach to her GGF3s for the Perrys and O’Sullivans.

Three-quarters of these branches are firmly rooted in the West Country, the Allens coming from deep into Cornwall, the final quarter in Ireland. So we can confirm Jane’s a Celt!
