My record indicates that Michael Du Bois Woods lived to be 100
b1585 d1685
His father was Pierre Du Bois whose father was Charles Du Bois De Fiennes and on back to the year1080. The relationship takes us to Knights Templar, Baldwin I King of the Holy Land.

From Michael Du Bois Woods we travel down to Richard Woods, then Sir JohnWoods whose wife was Isabella Bruce ( and she can be traced to Robert The Bruce King of Scotland. There are several JohnWoods and then an Alexander Woods

From What I can gather between Sir John Woods and Alexander Woods your family branches off and the s is lost and changed to Wood. Sir John Woods traveled to Ireland with Cromwells Army to capture Ireland and he and his wife stayed there. The Town of Meath comes up in our records also.

Thus it appears we are related.

If you travel back to Robert the Bruce and his grandparents. His grandmother was a Le Clare and her Father and grandfather were two of the Barons who forced King John to sign the Magna Charta.

The De Finnes, DuBois, and Le Clare's all came over from France with William the Conqueror and fought at the Battle of Hastings to capture England. For that they received land from the new King.

The Le Clare's were also descendents of Charlemagne.

Wow this is wonderful! So sorry that it has taken me this long to reply back to you.
I am continuing my journey back in time on the Du Bois and DeFiennes family. So far I am amazed by this! I hope we can stay in contact with one another since we might be related! Here is my new email address
Or by phone 901-230-9602
And I also have found out that a
Humphrey De Bohun 1304 is some how connected to the Du Bois family as well.
I am still doing the cross reference on that! Hope to hear back from you soon!
And have a very bless day!

I came across this posting while researching my family's possible connection to the Knights Templar. My family (Dubois) has been traced to the 1600's in France. They left France in the late 1620's as a result of religions persecution, fleeing to Scotland, and in the 1650's were one of the families sent by Cromwell to settle Ireland. They changed their name to Boies in Scotland. My direct ancestor is David Boies (1683-1752, Scotland).
Would love to hear from you. Carol Boies James
