BBC TV "WDYTYA?" Series 8 Episode #2: Rupert Everett
« on: Friday 23 July 10 11:21 BST (UK) »
Just read the info on this episode, described by Alison Graham of the Radio Times as a belting story! I've no idea whether Alison Graham is a family history enthusiast or not, so her idea of a belting story might be quite different from ours, but it does get a good write up. I'm looking forward to it.  :)

PS Should have added that it on this Monday (26th) 9pm BBC1.

They seem to have gone over the top with the pre publicity on this one. My TV magazine has virtually given away the whole programme (which I won't repeat here). Still going to watch it though  :D
James Stott c1775-1850. James was born in Yorkshire but where? He was a stonemason and married Elizabeth Archer (nee Nicholson) in 1794 at Ripon. They lived thereafter in Masham. If anyone has any suggestions or leads as to his birthplace I would be interested to know. I have searched for it for years without success. Thank you.

As Rupert Everett is a direct descendant of Charless ll, I would imagine that his family history is going to be quite interesting as I am sure that he is descended from the wrong side of the blanket. 

Also Rupert as a person should make the programme fun.

I think it's got to be the wrong side of the blanket since Charles II had no legal heirs, hence the reason his brother James succeeded him.  Wonder if the name Rupert came from their cousin Prince Rupert.

Charles II had at least one son with Lucy Waters, and wasn't there a family with Barbara Castlemaine?  If it was a line from Rupert of the Rhine it would be a line from Jame VI and I, wouldn't it, with Charles just as a collateral ancestor?
Agree with Plummiegirl that it'll be the wrong side of the blanket but the wrong side of a royal blanket in those day was still pretty aristocratic

Looking forward to finding out - thanks for the reminder!

What a charmer...thoroughly enjoyed his story.....his Gt Aunt was quite taken with him wasn't she?
An insight into the process of research too, albeit crammed into an hour.

Yes I enjoyed that, as, what an interesting family history he has!
Really liked the fact as mentioned that they showed the process, and the banter between him and his new great aunt.

Really enjoyed the programme, but wonder what happened to his g.grandmother after she put her son Cyril into the Home for Small Boys.  It just seemed that because she didn't show up on the census, she was dismissed out of hand.
