"500 years ago today, Sir John Spencer died. He bought the land at Althorp for grazing his sheep, built Althorp House in 1508, and was knighted by Henry VIII in 1519. He died on 14 April 1522, and this is his tomb."

Sir John Spencer's tomb in the Spencer Chapel, Great Brington church






A lady took this video of the Great Brington Church inside. We all must visit it some day:

The church of St Mary the Virgin with St John more commonly known as Great Brington, St Mary's Church houses many of the Spencer Family tombs.

Going back one step furthur, we have American socialite Frances Work who married James, 3rd Baron Fermoy who's oldest son was Maurice. So that makes her Diana's great grandmother.

Another interesting tidbit is that Harry and William, having Frances Work Roche as a great great grandmother, through this lineage they also have Oliver Platt, an American actor who shares the same great great grandmother.

So, this kind of shows that should Harry and Meghan Markle get engaged and married, he wouldn't be the first in his family tree to have married an American.
QEQM herself has American ancestry from a family that came to the USA before the Work family came to the USA, so it’s not just from Diana he has American ancestry. Plus the Queen has ties to the Washington family and the Spencer’s do as well because they lived nearby Sulgrave Manor
