About Ursula Tarleton


"Her "father" died on April 16, 1619, so it's unlikely she was born in 1620. I don't know where the "c. 1620" birth date came from, but it was probably just a guesstimate., so I'm taking the liberty of moving it back a year to c. 1619."

"Also, it seems unlikely that she would have been born in Wales. If someone has a source for this, please add a note."

from Mentioning Ursula Tarleton (Fleming) » Ursula Tarleton (Fleming) - Virginia Flemings descent from the Earls of Wigton-NO proof! Started by Barbara Pixley on Sunday, September 16, 2012

"This a a story and has been perpetuated for years in various books etc. (eg. the book by Fuqua) At this time THERE IS NO PROOF OF A CONNECTION! There have been attempts at a DNA connection-but since the male line in Scotland failed in the 17th-the chances of proof are slim and none. While a connection to the Virginia Flemings is possible, even probable-it is NOT confirmed. See the website: and check Col Charles Fleming's site. Also his site on under the tree name and for a discussion of the ongoing DNA program-go ot under the surname: Fleming."

Disconnected as daughter of John Fleming, 1st Earl of Wigton & Lilias Graham May 2014.
