RT has given the cMs for the cousin matches that aren't double matches, Roger, so they'd be similar to 3-4th cousin matches. However, if the link was via the 4xgrts (James and Ann), I would think that they would show as 5th cousins   or with removes :-\

Match info for those who only have a single line of descendent from James and Ann:-
Match 1 - shared cMs me = 71, my sister = 114, predicted relationship for me = 4th cousin and for my sister = 3rd cousin, actual relationship = 3rd cousin twice removed, James and Ann relationship = 2 x great grandparents
Match 2 - shared cMs me = 48, my sister = 55, predicted relationship for both of us = 4th cousin, actual relationship = 3rd cousin twice removed, James and Ann relationship = 2 x great grandparents
Match 3 - shared cMs me = 33, my sister = 54, pred. rel. for us both = 4th cousin, act. rel. = 4th cousin once removed, James and Ann rel. = 3 x great grandparents
Match 4 - shared cMs me = 51, my sister = 39, pred. rel. both = 4th cousin, act. rel. = 4th cousin once removed, James and Ann rel. = 3 x great grandparents
