Richard III is in my fam­ily tree

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - WRITE IN -

You asked in the let­ters pages in your March is­sue whether any other read­ers have got Richard III in their fam­ily tree.

Well, my niece’s son, Charles King, is a first cousin 20 times re­moved from Richard III. He is di­rectly re­lated to Richard III’s grand­fa­ther Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of West­mor­land and his wife Lady Joan de Beau­fort. With co­op­er­a­tion of mem­bers of ances­try.co.uk, and par­tic­u­larly the help of Charles’s father, Richard King, I have traced back a di­rect line to Wil­liam the Con­queror on my fam­ily tree. Ed­ward Bris­tow, by email Editor replies: I hope you man­aged to make it to Richard III’s rein­ter­ment at Le­ices­ter – see­ing as you are fam­ily!
