Mr Hines's comment was in relation to this statement:
Here's all I have. Note that I have _NOT_ said that the Earl is
descended from Lucy Walters' boyfriend, King Charles III of England.
The writer actually meant King Charles II of England.
Bonnie Prince Charlie would have become Charles III, had he become king, which
he did not.
