Hi Hackstaple
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sobieski_Stuarts
As far as I can make out they seem to have  had English parents,some of  the children, including themselves  were born in Wales - the mother was English, and I take a guess the father was too born in England,  being a naval officer , and especially with  a name like Allen.

I can sort of remember this story from history lessons back in  my schooling years in Wales

Don't blame the Welsh for these two pretenders - it was the English ;D

I have an ancestor called John Stewart from Selkirk.

My mother was Mary Stewart descended (proven) from the Stewarts of Thornhill near Doune Castle that doesn't mean she had any relationship to Mary Queen of Scots  ;D  ;) :P

I wasn't saying I am trying to prove a link to royalty was I? I was just saying I have a Scottish Stewart line and research them because they are my ancestors not to try and find a royal link.

I was feeling a bit left out for a moment, but had a look at Ancestry Member Trees.  Where would we be without them?  Apparently I can claim Charlemagne King of the Franks as an ancestor.  I feel so much better now :)

My grandfather's 3rd cousin married someone who was descended from Robert the Bruce on one side and from various bigwigs including Earl Grey on t'other. That's the same Grey who had the illegitimate child with Georgiana, duchess of Devonshire, who was a Spencer by birth - same family as Princess Diana.

No, I didn't look all that up myself, Burke's Peerage is a wonderful resource!  ;D

With such close royal connections, I can't think why I didn't get a wedding invite recently!

  Hi All...

 My grt grandmother was the grandly named Emily Elizabeth Gertrude Fitzjohn. Fitzjohn appears with links to many royal lines since William I. However not the easiest to trace back from Hertfordshire. After 1780 who knows........ maybe back to the Plantagenets and Geoffrey of Anjou.So far all its got me is a right royal headache.......
