Subject: Additional Edward III Descents for Anne Skipwith Goforth Oxley
Date: Tue, 15 May 2012 22:46:17 -0700 (PDT)

Martin Hollick has done a great service laying out a descent from
Edward III for Quaker immigrant Anne Skipwith, wife first of William
Goforth, with whom she immigrated to Burlington, New Jersey. After his
death, she married William Oxley and settled with him in Philadelphia:

The descent shows she is 10 generations removed from Edward III
through his youngest son Thomas of Woodstock, Duke of Gloucester. She
has two other descents from Edward III. In the first she is fourteen
generations removed from that monarch, through his second surviving
son, Lionel of Antwerp, Duke of Clarence. In the other she is
thirteen generations removed through his third son, John of Gaunt,
Duke of Lancaster:

1A) Lionel of Antwerp, Duke of Clarence (1338-1368), who had
2A) Philippa of Clarence, Countess of March (1355-1377), who had
