Love the podcast!- and I'm a first-time commenter. Question: it seems to me that because of the exigencies of male-preference primogeniture, and the violent and pestilential conditions of life in these middle ages, many of the great and not- so- great families- as political and land-owning entities- lasted only a few generations. Were any of the families that you mention here still around by Elizabeth I's time? The Nevilles perhaps (they were fecund)? How long before the average "line" petered out?
