Another Erin First Canute Blog!

Finally! I have found the branch in my family tree that links me to Erin First Canute. It is all pretty exciting to finally have this part of my tree completed. He was born in 1676 but died at the very young age of 24 in the year 1700. I would really like to find out how he died. Was it of natural causes? A tuberculosis outbreak? Maybe, who knows? But I hope to find out! Just who was Erin Canute anyway? Who did he marry? It is unknown. But Erin did have one child by the name of Earl Canute, who was born May 12, 1696 in Southampton, England. Earl Canute married an Ann Canute and had 7 children. 

It is said to be that Erin Canute was a descendant of King Canute and Queen Emma. I guess this is where my search really gets interesting. I've seen many blogs postings on that people are saying there may be a possible link to Harthacanute and Erin Canute. Myself personally, am pretty skeptical. I need a very reliable source that would link these two as family.

I did manage to find a family tree web site that lists a William Canute Cornett (born circa 1626) as Erin First Canute's father. I need further research to determine if this may be true. Supposedly William was born in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England.
