As to the Spencer/Spenser connection, there is one.  It was explained to
me a couple of years ago by a friend of mine, Arthur Spencer, historian
and genealogist in Portland OR.  It is quite involved and I cannot find
my notes, but I will write to Art and ask him again.  He was interviewed
in the Oregonian at the time of Diana's death, and the article may be
available online but I can't give you an exact URL right now.  He will
be interested to know about the Marlowe book that Sean Lawrence
mentioned.

I do recall that they are related to the Butlers and Chamberlains, all
being important offices within great houses.
