I am the 14th great grand daughter of Anne Boleyn and Henry Heydon through Bridget Heydon and my daughter and I were born with genetic Osteogenesis Imperfecta type1. My mother Yell(who is currently obsessing over our family tree) is bothering the heck outta me to post this and ask if anyone here with the Boleyn bloodline also has this genetic condition. Any response would be appreciated.

Hey, that’s pretty cool! Welcome! Smile
No one I know in my family has had any medical problems quite like that. Now, mental illness….that seems to run pretty rampant in my family. Laugh
That might have more to do with Stuart/Stewart blood than anything though….

At times I almost dream, I too have spent a life the sages' way,
And tread once more familiar paths. Perchance I perished in an arrogant self-reliance
Ages ago; and in that act, a prayer For one more chance went up so earnest, so
Instinct with better light let in by death, That life was blotted out—not so completely
But scattered wrecks enough of it remain Dim memories as now, when once more seems The goal in sight again. -- Robert Browning, Paracelsus

Hello,

How exciting that you have ancestry linking you to Anne Boleyn!

My name’s Saskia Black. I’m making a radio documentary on Anne Boleyn supporters.

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to be interviewed? Unfortunately I can only talk to people based in the UK.

It’d be a chance for you share your thoughts and feelings on Anne and how it made you feel to find out you’re related to her.

The documentary will be pitched for Falling Tree Productions, who work for the BBC.

Contact me on saskia.eastlondonlines@gmail.com

Looking forward to speaking with you.

Thanks,

Saskia

My mother’s side of the family, through her fathers mothers side, we are descended from Mary Queen Of Scots. I just wish my sister would find the family tree that our aunty done to show this. Which also puts Diana spencer a very distant cousin of ours as well. Like some people who are related to MQoS, through james v1/1 through the Hanovers, James granddaughter, you will find the present royal family is also connected to you on a very distant connection. James 1st is the 9th great grandfather to QE II
It’s weird how all these descendants binds quite a lot of us on this site together.

My bloodline doesn’t quite decend from the tudors but decends from someone very close to the tudor family. My grandmother traced our family back to 1543 my great great great great great grandmother was Mary Beaton of the once great beaton clan and lady in waiting to Mary Queen of Scots. Since learning about this i have developed a curiosity in not only british history but the history of that of the clan i am related to anyone who can help inform me on this once great clan please inform me Smile

Greetings everyone. it’s like a family reunion here! I too am a descendent of Mary Boleyn. her daughter, Catherine Carey, granddaughter Anne Knollys married the Baron De La Warr, whose son Robert West’s great grand daughter married my great great grandfather on my father’s side. He was a Quaker living in Banbury Oxford, and was turned away from the sect when he married the non Quaker West. I believe her name was Mary. And she was my ggggrandmother on my father’s side.

Also De la Warr, my gggggg uncle or so Thomas West Baron de la Warr was the second Governor of the Jamestown Colony, where he was known as Lord Delaware, and the State the Indians and the River were named for him.

I was born and raised in Britain, my father was English, and my mother was Welsh, but 1/4 Yorshire English, and her father was descended from irish Tinkers.

I looked back on the De La Warrs, and there is a connection via a cousin and a wife but the line goes back on the female side to the great Grandaughter of Prince/King John, so Eleanor of Aquitaine is in there too, and back through Matilda. That is the De La Warr title. The West family it is thought to have come over to Britain with the Plantagenet kings. I do not know though. We have traced West back to 1050, and before that it is French “Guest” back to the 800s.. (Sounds like a Norman to me)

I also have done my maternal mitochondrial DNA, and I am a U3, which is from originally Africa as we all were with Eve (if you believe it) and then to Greece, where the parent Eve for my haplotype lived. Then “we” spread over eastern and middle Europe and on into England in small numbers. It is not one of the major groups in Britain, suggesting a traveler such as a Roman slave from the east, or a Gypsy. All interesting. And I can claim Tudor Heritage. Queen Elizabeth 1 was one of my great aunts. I think Anne Boleyn was the right Queen and partner for Hanry VIII He should never have let her go. Only one question. Was Catherine Carey Henry VIII’s child or not?

Hi, I’m brand new to the board here. I’m an 11th great grandson of Mary Boleyn via her son Henry Carey. My mother gave me a book of our ancestry on her side of the family for Christmas. When I got to the 16th century this afternoon, I stumbled across my direct connection to Mary. Much like Laycat109 mentioned above, I have been not only an Anglophile but an avid student of the Tudor and Boleyn stories for as long as I can remember.
I must admit I am floored by finding this information but also perhaps carry a little extra pride in my step than I had a few hours ago.
I’m looking forward to looking around and talking with the rest of you here.

I am very keen on family history but unless famous, it is usually difficult to get back to Tudor times with confidence. I recently have managed to get back that far (with help) for one line with the family name Souch (multiple spelling also don’t help). There is a Holbein painting (M. Souch) over which there is debate on whether this is “Mistress Zouch”, which could be either Jane Rogers, wife of Richard Zouch, heir of John, Lord Zouch of Haringworth, or Anne Gainsford, a lady-in-waiting to Anne Boleyn and wife of George Zouch of Codnor or Mary Souch, a maid-of-honour to Jane Seymour. I cannot find much about the latter so cannot find out whether she came form Oxford and so may be related to meConfused

Been having a look into my family line of late, and it appears we are a real Heinz 57 family. On my mothers side of things, we have a mixture of English/Scottish/Welsh/Irish and American blood whilst my dad’s side is French and English, the French side of things dates back to the Conqueror, it appears that some of my forebares came over with him in 1066 and liked it so much they stayed.
As it goes Dinosaur’s family is much the same they too came over with the Conqueror, and set up home in Kent. On his mum’s side they are pure Welsh Celtish stock and Dinosaur resembles a typical Welsh celt, i.e short and stocky, with dark hair and eyes. When he was youunger his parents always went to Wales for their holidays, and whenever they went anywhere, the people would automatically talk to his mother in Welsh it was if they recognised her as one of their own so to speak.
I’ve found a link in my line to Thomas Culpepper, whether is it THE Thomas Culpepper K.H’s cousin I don’t know. But it does seem to me at least that nearly all of us here have some blood tie to the Boleyns in one form or other how mad is that? Perhaps Anne B was a witch and cast a spell so that whatever happened to her her blood line would for ever live on. LOL.

Think that’s really cool what you all have found out. Don’t know if there is any kinship with the Boleyns and their associated families and me or not.
Mom’s side is hungarian and dad’s side is german. I recall my dad saying relatives in Nuremberg keep the family history book.Unfortunately way back in the late 1950s when he did a tour of duty to Germany and England he didn’t get there.It was one of his Garmisch cousins who told him that but daddy said he just didn’t have time.
I did hear from a cousin over there who said his grandfather had done a family tree. How far back it goes I have no idea but i emailed him so hope to hear soon.
I know that many countries in those days did use mercenaries and there were german and other forgein merchants and artists etc. in England at the time like Hans Holbein.It’s possible someone could have come over in some sort of capacitiy and stayed and married into an english family connected to Anne or some of these other people like the Howards.My dad’s family has always served in the german military mainly as officers for heaven knows how long,which gets me wondering if any of them forget as mercenaries in the War of the Roses or other battles.

Wow there is some great family history going on here ,I find it all so interesting :)
I know not ,as of yet if there is any Boleyn heritage in my line .
I am distantly related to the current Lord Bath and my fathers Line reaches back to a man in service to Henry VIII , which is very hard to find documentation on .I grew up a stones throw from The Tower of London so I’m sure there are a few murky skeletons lurking too lol.
My mothers side are seafaring folk and dockers ..I’m hoping to get my DNA matches done soon :)

I recently started up my account on Ancestry again, because of a project I had to do in my Diversity class. Was blown away when I found out that Thomas Howard 2nd Duke of Norfolk is my 16th great grandfather. Through the Hinson/Hynson and Moss lines, which married into the Cooper’s. I literally almost had a heart attack! I’d like to do the DNA just to verify that there isn’t something I missed or messed up during my tracing, but I was pretty stoked when I saw that.

Star — if I counted correctly, Thomas Howard, 2nd Duke of Norfolk and his wife Elizabeth Tilney, were my 14th Great grandparents! I then come down through the Boleyn, Knolley, West, Fox, Claiborne, Webb, Barnett, Families. The Neville and Percy Families also figure into my ancestors.

Larry if that’s the case the very possibly we are related somewhere along the grand scheme of things too. As Captain Matthew Webb (First bloke to swim the English Channel and died trying to swim across the bottom of Niagara falls.) is an uncle of mine with so many greats in between.
I was going to say that I feel some sympathy for you being related to the odious jumped up cretinous poppingjay Norfolk, but if Uncle Matt is the common bond between us then I too am related to that odious jumped up cretinous poppingjay Norfolk as well.

LaughLaughLaughLaugh I thought you would NEVER admit such a thing! With all the expletives and adjectives you have spewed out about ‘my dear ole’ grandpa Henry’ I never believed you’d admit relationship to him!!! Now, how does it feel to have someone talk “mean” Yell about your ‘dear ole’ Uncle Henry?’
Surprised We never know who we will dig up if we work at it long enough. Wink I’m reading some now about dear ole’ Pappa King John I; seems like he was rotten to the core, too! Were NONE of these Royal AH’s a decent person? Seems like all I read about is ‘blood and gore’! Guess that’s why we treated the Indians and Negros so badly, we inherited it FROM YOU GUYS! Smile I hope this doesn’t start an “International Incident”; seems we have plenty of those already!

True but on the other hand Larry if my Webb line can be traced back to the odious jumped up cretinous poppingjay Norfolk, the bloodline back to Lard Arse in by in-law only although there may be some very watered down Lard arse DNA there, as Lard Arse was decended to all his wives in the master scheme of things. I guess being related via the odious jumped up cretinous Norfolk has it advantages, if Stephen Hawking proves his time travel theory, as I can go back in time and get Norfolk to introduce me to Lard Arse, so I can kick him straight between the eyes….. I think it’s eyes? Oh no sorry it’s not eyes it’s the dangly collection of objects he keeps in his codpiece that I’ll kick him in. Best we have someone over the other side of the throne room with a catchers mitt to catch the flying objects or they will splatter up the wall and blood’s a bugger to get out of tapesties. LOL.

As to the WEBB line, mine dates back to Giles WEBB, b. c. 1620 in Gloucester, Eng, mar. Judith Randolph BLAND, b 1623 in Va, Giles d. 1692 in Richmond Co, Va. — I have Giles’ father as , William Micajah WEBB, b 9 Jan 1582 in Stratford, Warwick, d Jul 1656 in Norfolk City, Va., mar. Grace WILSON; William Micajah’s father was Sir Alexander WEBB, Jr, and mother Mary WILSON, etc. etc.
I don’t know how accurate these are, but at any rate, it is very interesting to at least ‘pretend’ these are my relatives! I read somewhere, that to go back 100 generations, one would have more than a TRILLION direct ancestors!! Could that be right?

Well I couldn’t have you thinking I was getting soft now could I. Must admit kicking Lard Arse hard in the middle of the Gentleman’s department is a very pleasing image. Just wonder if I’ve got enough Vanish power foam to get rid of the blood stains in the tapestries? Best to be safe than sorry I’ll go up to the wholesellers and buy a case, or and a case febreze too, can’t be having his stink in the palace.
