I know a Kendo-ka who has a famous family background. Mr. Uchida, whose father was a retainer of the Shogunate.

The connection's a bit indirect, but my wife's family on her father's side were retainers of the Mito han. As he describes it, they were not especially high level, and were mostly doing administrative work for the han.
