I'm sorry but I misread Faris in my hurry the other day.

Col. John Washington is a descendant of Edmund Sutton and his first
wife, Joyce Tiptoft, not his second wife, Maud Clifford, who has the
Edward III descent. So while John Washington has a number of Edward I
descents, and at least one Henry III, he has no descents from Edward III
given in Faris II.

I apologize to anyone who was misled by my carelessness.

Hines, I'm sure, will now strut about like the RAF rooster in Chicken
Run, waggling his tail feathers and crowing in triumph. I hope he enjoys
