I've been following this thread with great interest as I did actually
manage to find a link with the aristocracy within my ancestors.
My 5 x great-grandmother, Mary Cook is buried in Lammas Cemetery, and
on her gravestone it says "One of Ye Daughters of Charles Needham".
It took me quite a while and considerable research to find out that
Charles Needham was the son of Charles Needham, the 4th Viscount
Kilmorey. I have the connections documented, and from there I have
been able to trace the family back for more generations.
So, don't give up on finding aristocratic ancestors, it can happen!!
