                  "master wizard Throckmorton P. Ruddygore" 

                   Cornwell, Patricia.  Isle of Dogs.   Berkley Publishing Group , 2002.  On about p. 152 of her novel, Ms.
                   Cornwell mentions "JR120", widely believed to be Kenelm or Kellum Throckmorton, possibly the
                   first Throckmorton to America, an inhabitant of the Jamestown settlement, being researched by
                   anthropologists and a historian.  His bones have been found.

                    Fairstein, Linda.  Bad  blood.  New York:  Scribner, 2007.  Ms. Fairstein's settings are often in New York
                    City or the area.  In this book she mentions much about the "sandhogs" of New York, the folks who dig the
                     tunnels, and as mention of the history of the eastern area of the Bronx, she discusses the Throg's Neck area
                    named for my ancestor John  Throckmorton, who had a farm there  of hundreds of acres in the 1640s.  There
                    is not other relation of any Throckmorton to the actual plot, however.  Check p. 186.

                    Seawell, Molly Elliot. Throckmorton. New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1899. This historical novel
                    seems  to    include names familiar to us but perhaps encompassing traits of multiple people: "Major
                    George Throckmorton" of Virginia, "Jack Throckmorton." 

                     Woods, Stuart.  The short forever.  New York:  G. P. Putnam's Sons, 2002.  "Detective Inspector Evelyn
                      Throckmorton" (long E in Evelyn, male gender, very British.)           

                     Lobster Man from Mars.  V VHS, 1990.  This is a wacky sci-fi spoof in which Billy Barty plays the role
                     of "Mr. Throckmorton".        Well, I didn't know where to put this one but it's definitely unique!
 

                     AND SOMETIMES HAVING NO CLASSIFICATION....

                      Dr. Tom D. Throckmorton, in addition to his reknown due to daffodil propagation (see Daffodils and    
                      Throckmortons page), also was an appreciator of excellent writing.  He made the following review

          the author of "Bridges of Madison County").  P
ublisher: Iowa State University Press, 1989.
"Poetry disguised as prose. A master of short sentences with exactly the right descriptive words. His 'soft-upon-the-Earth' passion converts rather than changes-a rare quality."-Tom D. Throckmorton, M.D., Des Moines 

                        

           MUSIC BY THROCKMORTONS

           Throckmorton, Sonny. Last cheater's waltz. Sound recording by Mercury, 1978. Songs written, sung and
