Evil man is a son of your aunt or uncle therefore he is your first cousin, he's a grandson of your 3rd gt grandparents so therefore

1st cousin three times removed

Or 1st cousin 3 generations ago.

No, Jane said that the man is the son of her 3x gt grandparents
This makes him a brother of one of her 2x gt grandparents, which makes him a 3xgt uncle.

This is the relationship as Jane explained posted 9.47 today

I was writting for a magazine about the grandson (3 times murderer and  wife beater, an evil man)of my 3 great grandfather, itís not really crucial to the story.


He is Jane's 1st cousin 3 x removed, one of his parents is the 3rd gt aunt or uncle.

I know they are related to me, but as to how? That will remain a mystery. In the grand scheme of things itís not that important.

Definitely the best way to go!   Whatever you call them you are still going to have to describe the relationship, so . . . . .  ;D ;D ;D

He is Jane's 1st cousin 3 x removed, one of his parents is the 3rd gt aunt or uncle.

So she did. She's changed the question. I give up.

Modified - I was answering this query and hadn't seen the later one "Yes Jen good explanation. I will throw a curve ball in now. My great x 3 grandparents on paternal side, his son great x 4 uncle, yes?"

No children of 3rd gt grandparents are 3rd gt aunts and uncles.

Think of it this way

3rd great grandfather =

great, great, great, grand (or great) father so 4th great father (that's the way I found to work out things)

Yes - that's what I said.
So Mr X is your great great, great grandfather
Mr Y is his son - your great great great uncle

I'm frantically looking through a file box, sure that somewhere I've got a printout of a chart which by finding a common ancestor, and tracing each party's relationship to that ancestor, arrives at a box which gives the correct title for that relationship. I used it for years, it was easy to use, and proved invaluable, and it worked out fully each time. If I can find it I'll try to say where I got the wretched thing. Watch this space....
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)
