Notes from Mark Barrett
- Edward the Confessor died in January of 1066, months before
the battle of Hastings.
- Robert de Clifford and his wife Maud de Clare
had several children. The d.s.p. notation is not correct.
- Helen of Galloway is listed as the daughter of Alan and
a daughter of Hugh de Lacy, Earl of
Ulster, or daughter or sister of Roger de Lacy of Pontefract in
"Ancestral roots of certain American colonists who came
to America before 1700", Frederick Lewis Weis et al., 1992, 7th edition.
Author Michel Call ("Royal Ancestors of LDS Families") says that
the mother of Helen of Galloway is Helen (Hilda) d'Isle, dau. of Reginald.
Buck in "Pedigrees of some of Charlemagne's Descendants" says it is
Margaret of Huntingdon.
- Descents from Roman Emperors are not widely accepted.
- See notes on Genuissa, Arviragus, and Claudius
by Dr. J. C. Marler.
Cassivellaunus (Cadwallan) father of
Tasciovanus (Teauhant) father of
Eppilus and Cunobelinus (Cymbelline) father of
Caratacus (Caradog - Caradoc)
Togodumnus (Togidumnus) > Cogidumnus
Arviregus (Arvirigus), a Silurian chieftain, was most likely the son of Caratacus or a nephew, he was definately not the son of Cunobelinus and did not marry Claudius' daughter - see Juvenal - he was a deadly enemy of Rome.
[For another opinion about Arviragus, see comments by Dr. J. C. Marler,
Genuissa, Arviragus, and Claudius - PBM]
Eppilus likewise was not either his son but more likely his older brother.
Caratacus' daughter, Claudia, was born in Rome, and married Pudens hence becomming the first Briton to be mentioned in the Bible.
Cunobelinus was never educated in Rome, the forstalling of the invasion coming from the defeat in the Black Forest of Rome's three legions - possibly assisted by Cunobelinus and the Catuvellauni.
There never was a Guiderius, nor a Marius - other than a possible governor, and Cogidumnus became client king for Rome after Caratacus' capture at the hands of the Brigante queen Cartimandua. These were figments of Geoffrey of Monmouth's wild imagination.
As is any lineage of the Catuvelluani after Cogidumnus / Arviregus.
