The Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal: Being a Complete Table of All the Descendants Now Living of Edward III, King of England; The Clarence Volume, Containing the Descendants of George, Duke of Clarence (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal: Being a Complete Table of All the Descendants Now Living of Edward III, King of England; The Clarence Volume, Containing the Descendants of George, Duke of Clarence
The present volume contains the names of some living (or very lately living) descendants of the Duke of Clarence,1 having between them lines of descent, being an average of a little under two descents each. It will thus be seen that the descendants of Duke George are much more numerous than those of Edward IV., while the number of intermarriages between his descendants have been considerably less. The great majority have only one line of descent, while a few have eight and more. The children of Herbert M. J. Stourton of Sunningdale appear to come first with fifteen lines, ten being through their father and five through their mother, a sister of Viscount Southwell. They were followed by those of the Hon. Bernard Constable Maxwell and his wife, a daughter of the 15th Lord Lovat, with thirteen, and those of Sir William and Lady (ne'e Weld) Vavasour with twelve. Lord Granard and his brothers and sisters have eleven, the children of Lord Petre and of his brothers and sisters have ten each, while those of Lord and Lady (ne'e Constable) Mowbray, Sir Henry and Lady (ne'e Petre) Dou hty-tichborne, and of Edmund and the Hon. Mrs. (ne'e Constable Maxwell) maxwell-stuart have nine. The Duke Gan dolfi's children have eight each, as have those of his cousin, Mr. Fitzherbert Brockholes of Claughton Hall.
Two hundred and ten peers are descended from Clarence, Lord Granard coming first with eleven descents, and Lord Petre second with ten.
