My name is Grace Dethick and I'm a meme we of the Dethick family and I have this book and got it for free but have never read it only when it comes up with family members i have heard of😂😂
I just received this book, and it is a treasure trove for anyone researching the Dethick family. Plenty of sources to do your own first hand research, but it would have been nice if Ms. Dethick had included footnotes and actual references to particular bits of information. For instance, she states that Robert de Dethek, son of Jordan de Dethek, is "mentioned in the 1100s in the Honour of Peveril", but provides no source for that, or for his descent from Jordan.
On the whole, it's a good book, but needed a bit of editing and better footnoting. But as a jumping off point for your own research, as well as clearing up murky relationships and ancestry, it's great!
