Subject: Genealogics Additions: Additional Edward I Descents for PrincessDiana thru Robert Walpole (1593-1663)
Date: Mon, 3 Sep 2012 16:05:36 -0700 (PDT)

I've been working on the ancestry of Maria Walpole, Duchess of
Gloucester & Edinburgh (1736-1807), the wife of Prince William,
younger brother of King George III. Through her daughter (by her 1st
husband the 2nd Earl Waldegrave), Lady Anne Waldegrave Seymour
(1762-1801), Maria is an ancestress of Princess Diana.

Leo's database traces Maria Walpole's patrilineal line back to Robert
Walpole (1593-1663) and his father Calibut Walpole:

Robert Walpole was descended from Edward I thru each of his parents
(his mother was Elizabeth Bacon of Hessett Hall), as so:

Edward I had

Walpole, Duchess of Gloucester

In addition, Genealogics has the wife of Robert Walpole of Hougton
Hall (1593-1663), as "Susan Barkman". She was actually Susan, the
daughter of Sir Edward Barkham (c.1554-15 January 1634, buried St
George Church, South Acre, Norfolk), Lord Mayor of London 1621-1622,
by his wife Jane Crouch (will proved 26 June 1654). That couple is in
Leo's database here:
