From Ann Hentschel Sarnia, Ontario, Canada in August 2005. I am connected to Anne STRANGE. The following is from FFOULKES Family of Eriviat Pedigree in the County of Denbeigh, Wales.
1860 Jul 26 Anne STRANGE, 5th daughter and 12th child of the late Sir Thomas Andrew William Lumisden STRANGE, K', late Chief Justice of Madras (& son of Sir Robert STRANGE, K' the eminent engraver) of 2 Chesham Place, Pimlico, London. - married - Edmund Salusbury FFOULKES, B.D., born Jan. 12, 1819.
Andrew Sellon responded; my interest originates in Sir Robert STRANGE who married Isabella LUMSDEN, d. of William Lumsden, as my sister married a LUMSDEN. In addition there are links between these STRANGEs and the DUNDAS family of my paternal
grandmother. Here is a story to share concerning Robert Strange's (Sir to be) escape when being pursued by the loyalists after the
Jacobean disaster at Culloden:
"….When hotly pressed, he (Strange) dashed into the room where the lady, whose zeal had enlisted him in the fatal cause, sate singing at her needle work, and, failing other means of concealment was indebted for safety to her prompt intervention. As she quickly raised her hooped gown, the affianced lover disappeared beneath its ample contour, where, thanks to her cool demeanour and unflattering notes, he lay undetected, while the rude soldiery vainly ransacked the house." The lady was Isabella Lumsden, whom he later married.

I have a Mary Ann Plumb in my records, she was John Hayward's mother and John married Rachel STRANGE in 1865 in Isleworth Middlesex. Rachel STRANGE was my great grandmother. Mary Ann's father was Thomas Plumb born 1795/96 in Speen Berkshire.
