I withdraw my question. Elizabeth Longford, in her bio of the Great
Duke, provides information which answers the question. She says that
any putative links were pure Victorian wish-fulfillment, and such
genealogies were demolished by several modern researchers. So
apparently, the two families were not related, except by similarity of
name.
