I wouldn't trust anything I couldn't verify. My wife supposedly has a link
back to the Magna Charta done by a professional researcher but apparently it
depends on someone having a child at an unlikely young age although it might
have possible. And of course there could be an error in the age. And some of
here relatives claim a connection to George Washington but it depends on
someone who had two wives with the same first name.
