Wonder what Sir Garnet Wolseley would have thought if he knew he was the brother in law of one of Anthony Durnfords cousins, we all are descended from John Creagh and Margaret Archdeacon, my 7th gg.grandparents, AWD's 5th gg grandparents.  Their sons were favourites of King James.

There were three of my Creagh cousins who served, probably the never knew they were related, but two even shared the same Welsh grandmother many moons ago. One was Col Durnford, and one was Charles, their third cousin was Arthur. When Arthur married Beatrice Greenfell, it integrated a huge network of military relatives, many who served in the Zulu War. Anyone wishing a copy of the pdf's just email me.
