Notes for Evelyn (Spouse 1)
from Martin Wood
[Author: "The Family and Descendants of St. Thomas More". Published in the UK by 'Gracewing'. April 2008.]
Through her father, George Hutton Ullathorne (1819-1882), she was the 10 x great-granddaughter of Sir/St Thomas More. In spite of the persecution of Catholics in England from the time of the reformation until the mid 1800s, the line of descendants to which Emily belonged remained constant in their Catholic faith. Emily was brought up a Catholic, but whether she continued in this faith as an adult, I do not know.
