I was doing some quick research on medieval Shrewsbury this morning before heading out to class.
Lo and behold, I discovered that one of the family names of the noble houses in the area was Harris.
I don’t know if John was a blood relation to them or not; it could be too that there was a fictive relation between the two families that John believed.
I don’t know if the monk whose life I remember was from the House of Harris, but it’s a distinct possibility.
But what would really be interesting is if I could establish a blood relation between the warrior-turned monk and the farmboy-turned soldier, and things would get to a new level of weirdness if I could connect both of them to me by blood relation.
