I think it's safe to say that no one of this line and bearing
Ventadour as a surname appears in England in the period you have in
mind. 'Venator' is likely to be associated with the Latin for Hunter
(and you'd be lucky not to have lost track of it buried subsequently
under that English name!) Yes, much Faye discussion (of autumn and
particularly November 2001) should show up in the archives. Good
