The Culpepper Linkage to Charlemagne, Emperor
of the West (born 762)
All living Culpeppers, worldwide,
descend from William Culpeper of Hunton and Wigsell and
his wife, Cicely Barrett. Cicely Barrett's ancestry has been
traced back to European royalty and to Charlemagne, Emperor of the
West during the 9th century. William Culpeper's ancestry has been
traced back to Sir Thomas Colepeper, born 1170.
While these lineages have
long been contained within our family tree, we have now highlighted them
through the use of two new charts:
