Sometimes I just keep running into the weirdest finds. Long story on how I ended up finding this (well, starts with me researching the husbands and lovers of Ava Gardner, who I was watching in a movie, and then following other links into other links into other links Laugh), but ran across this little bit at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H…..ard_Hughes.

His parents were Allene Stone Gano (a descendant of Owen Tudor, second husband of Catherine of Valois, Dowager Queen of England)and Howard R. Hughes, Sr., who patented the two-cone roller bit, which allowed rotary drilling for petroleum in previously inaccessible places. Howard R. Hughes, Sr. made the shrewd and lucrative decision to commercialize the invention, founding the Hughes Tool Company in 1909.

Had anyone ever heard this before in their Tudor readings?

And if Hughes' mother was descended from one of the children of Owen and Catherine, then is it possible for mental illness to to extend over dozens of generations? I ask because remember, Catherine's father — Charles VI — was possibly schizophrenic; his grandson Henry VI had bouts of mental instability too. And we all know of Hughes' infamous mental bouts. I don't know a lot about inheriting emotional or mental problems within a family line, but that could explain a great deal about Howard Hughes himself.

Henry: Mistress Anne, will you teach the king of England how they dance in the French court?
Anne: There is nothing that France can teach England, your majesty.
King Henry VIII: Well said. Well said.

I had never heard that Howard Hughes was related to the Tudors, but it might be true.

I don't know how mental illness exactly works in regards to families, but it is indeed possible that he may have inherited it from his mother's side. It does seem to run in families,you can some times read that in the history of various criminals and some of the royal families. I guess though one has to do a great deal of research to find some of this stuff out about famous people.

But if true as you say, it explains alot about his behaviour.

I'd love to know more about how they went about the research on his family's genealogy, but seeing the very familiar name Owen Tudor on a Wiki listing with Howard Hughes just sent my jaw to the floor! Surprised Sometimes you just don't know what you'll turn up. (I keep hoping I'll find out I'm related to Tudors myself LOL).

Henry: Mistress Anne, will you teach the king of England how they dance in the French court?
Anne: There is nothing that France can teach England, your majesty.
King Henry VIII: Well said. Well said.

I do know for a fact that Allene Stone Gano Hughes is related to the Tudor line because she is my grandmother. I just discovered this recently while doing my genealogy on Ancestry.com, and finding more cousins who share my DNA with both Allene and Howard. Our line runs clear to Lady Mary Tudor of England. Her father was Charles II of England, who’s grandfather was, King James of England.

If you doubt that I am the real daughter of, Howard Robard Hughes Jr., get the book titled, “Boxes: The Secret Life of Howard Hughes.” It is the 2nd edition and is written by Hollywood TV Producer/Director Douglas Wellman, and Major General Mark Musick. The book tells a small part of my story and that of a brother that I found, John MacDonald. John’s grandfather of record was, Archie MacDonald, who worked as the right hand man of Howard Sr. My family also has ties to the Hughes and Gano family, even before I was born. I would share some pictures here, two of which are in the book, but I am not sure if it is possible on this site.

As for mental illness, well, my father was not crazy like he led people to believe. He also did not die in 1976, but rather faked his death, and later in 2001 passed away and is now buried next to his parents. That is why at that time a fence was placed around the graves.
