I would like to welcome Tracy Anderson and her daughter Shannon as researchers within the Enchanted Family Genealogy Website. Tracy has added to the Veatch Veach Veitch Branch which links to England, Scottland and European Nobility.
The Veitch (Veatch) family ties back to The immigrant from Scotland, Sheriff James Veitch of Veitch’s Cove, Maryland he was married to Mary Gakerlin.
The name of James Veitch appears also on a short list of American colonists of proven royal descent appearing in an article by Walter Lee Shepard, “Descendants of the illegitimate Sons & Daughters of the Kings of Britain,” in The National Genealogical Society Quarterly (vol. 62, pp. 182-91), and his royal lineage also was confirmed in 1981 by the President of the Society of Descendants from the Illegitimate Sons & Daughters of the Kings of Britain. Lou Rose, The life & Times of Sheriffe James Veitch of Calvert County (Maryland) Prince Frederick, Md.; pp. 13, 40. Letter from Herman Nickerson, President of the Society, to Lou Rose dated 1 Oct 1981. pp. 41-49. “Line of James Veitch Traced to Harold II, King of England,” by Charles M. Lord, American Genealogy vol. 53, #3.
This is a truely interesting line and worth the time and effort for anyone that loves genealogy. It is our hope at the Enchanted Family that Tracy and her daughter Shannon will continue researching and bring many wonderful additions to the realm of the Enchanted Family.
