We would all like to think that the past will reveal that we are related to royalty or some famous person but, in reality, for most it just shows ordinary people and their struggle to survive and improve their lives. My family tore up its roots of centuries of living in Hertfordshire and moved to start a new life in Derbyshire in 1862. Over the next 150 years there would be hope, tragedy, violence, prison and service. There is an odd hero or two together with a marriage to the daughter of a Government Cabinet Secretary. This is a story with no ending and will continue to evolve until the male line of the Wrens' is no longer.
