In this extensive family history, the author tried to do more than write a mere record of births, deaths, and marriages. Working with wills, deeds, and biographical items, he endeavored to present a picture of an English family starting at the time of Domesday and following its fortunes to the 1930s. The Throckmorton family origins were at Throckmorton, Worcestershire, and they possessed land there that they had held at the time of the Norman Conquest. It is one of the Roman Catholic families of England but both John Throckmorton who settled in New England in 1631 and Robert Throckmorton who came to Virginia in 1637 were of the Protestant faith. Allied families include: Bynum, Besford, Wickliffe, Cocton, Brule´, Bonnycastle, Durvassal, Robinson, Spine, Olney, Pendleton, Vaulx, Barclay, Yates, Herbert, Blennerhassett, Woolley, Beckham, Courtney, Gifford, Louthe, Preston, Playter, Beaufo, Colston, Lawrence, Pickering, Bedell, Skipwith, Reed, Chapman, Tolliver, and Hooe.
