- On 9 Aug 2005, I received an email about an additional Royal descent for Alice Wolley:
Very much enjoying your website.
I descend from Susannah (Beatty) Asfordby and recently learned to my
surprise that, besides several descents form Edward I, there also is one
to Edward III (Asfordby, Wolley, Leming, Kelk [such great, Dickensian
names!], de la See, Clifford, Percy, Mortimer, Plantagenet), for which
see Douglas Richardson's _Plantagenet Ancestry_, pp. 414-5.
Interestingly, it seems Doug might have been unaware of the line since
he neglected to include it in the overview of descendants from Lionel,
Duke of Clarence, on p. 28.
