The ancestry of Dean Tucker is not easy to establish. One of the reasons is that he himself had no interest in genealogy. ‘For’, as he once wrote, ‘a blind, old, bedridden maiden aunt gave me such a surfeit for that kind of learning, that I have never liked it since… and as to family-antiquity, she assured me that we were descended from one Morgan who by having a round turret perched on the top of an hill, must have been a prince, — and indeed considering the situation of the place I think I might claim some relationship to the knights of the golden fleece. For I am sure my great ancestor Prince Morgan was a sheep-stealer.’1
