I did do a quick search on ancestry and found a tree with the brother but Alwitha wasn't on it. I wonder if I should contact the person who put the tree up. What do people think? Not even my family, just a name that caught my eye, but you do tend to get caught up in it all.  :)

Have done some digging and they might not have had high dreams after all, it seems Alswitha via her Great Great Grandmother Anne Chichester was the 13x Great Grandchild of King Edward III and Philippa of Hainault.

Sir James' middle name is definitely Roupell. There must be a connection with the Roupells of Lambeth who were a prominent family of land developers in the early-mid 19th century. William Roupell MP was jailed for 14 years for destroying his father's Will and forging a new one.

And all this just from a fluke sighting on the family search site.  ???

Oh dear, she might be a distant cousin of mine through my Puleston line - they were all descended from the Royals!
