Mark Gatiss Who Do You Think You Are appearance

The BBC’s run of Who Do You Think You Are? took us to the Northern part Ireland this week with Mark Gatiss’s maternal line providing the family history story in the show.

Mark  is someone who has always enjoyed storytelling with a particular passion for the ghoulish and so it comes as no surprise that it is in his genes. Researching his family history back five generations in Northern Ireland he found a tale of rags to riches for one member of his family and that he is descended from storytellers who just may have possibly been vampire slayers.

Now that is an interesting personality to have in one’s family tree!

Read TheGenealogist’s article…and see the Griffiths Valuation of Ireland on TheGenealogist, printed in August 1858, with Mark’s ancestor having a part tenement of a mountain!
