Newcombe Pedigree

Pedigree comes originally from the Anglo-Norman as "pé de grue" and later French "pied de grue" or crane's foot “ a symbol used in genealogical trees to mark a line of succession because the typical lines and split lines (each split leading to different offspring of the one parent line) resemble the thin leg and foot of a crane.”
