Families covered: Anderson of Broughton, Anderson of Castlethorpe, Anderson of Dunholme, Anderson of Eyworth, Anderson of Fixborough

BEB1841 reports that this family originally bore the name L'Isle, and was seated at Broughton in Lincolnshire, but changed its name when Robert L'Isle (a 1413) married the heiress of Anderson. BP1870 reports that the (Anderson) family is supposed to be of Danish extraction and was descended from Roger Anderson of Wrawby (a temp Edward II who r. 1307-1327). Both those sources start with the following Henry who is identified by Maddison as "a younger son of .... Anderson of Northumberland, said also to be a great-grandson of Roger Anderson of Wrawby".
Henry Anderson of Wraby or Wrawby or Wrawbray, Lincolnshire
Both BEB1841 & BP1870 report that Henry had an only son, Edward. However, Maddison inserts an additional generation between Henry & Edward, an only son named ...

  (A) Edmund Anderson (b 19.07.1652, d before 06.1694, 2nd son)
  The father of Viscountess Jocelyn is normally identified as Charles Anderson of Worcester. Thanks to a contributor (AB, 29.05.12) for advising us that parish register & PCC will entries confirm that Maddison is right in showing Edmund as father of Anna Maria & Charlotte. Apparently, both Edmund & Isabella died quite young and their daughters were brought up by Isabella's family in Worcestershire.
