Fertility record broken!

I appear to have broken the previous record for number of offspring in my family tree, which stood at 14(!)

My gt-gt-gt-grandfather, William FAGG (b. ~1801, Eastry, Kent) appears to have sired 15 (including a pair of twin daughters) !!

My granny FAGG was one of 10 children herself, but fertile families appear on both sides of my family, it would appear.

    Very impressive for a non-French Canadian family! In my line I have many families with over a dozen children. You may not know this but at a certain point in Quebec, very large families were encouraged and there was even free land for families with a dozen or more children.

    Thanks for your comments – nice to see my blog is reaching around the world at last!
    And thank goodness our Victorian relatives do not live in today’s benefit-driven UK society!
