The Cymru Welsh Royals and Aristocrats 742-1535
and the Collaborative Profile of the Week Present

Henry VII, King of England.

Here at WikiTree Henry VII, King of Engand (c1457-1509) was born, married, and made elaborate plans for his tomb.

  1. What else did he do?
  2. Did his reign have any lasting effects?
  3. His profile should have a sourced list of children. Would someone add one?
  4. Most of the profiles for his children have material and sources, but a few could use a little help: Son Edmund Tudor needs a source; son Roland needs a gedcom cleanup and a source, and daughter Katherineneeds a source.
  5. There are several images at Wikimedia Commons that can be added and perhaps worked into the biography. Make sure to give them proper provenance.

Not pre-1500 certified? Want to show us what you can do? Write a paragraph or more about Henry, with inline citations. Put it here in an answer. We’ll add it to the biography. (putting your name in the “Explain your changes”)

The Cymru Welsh Royals and Aristocrats 742-1535 Project

The Cymru Welsh Royals and Aristocrats 742-1535 Project is a sub-project of the United Kingdom Project. It includes royals, aristocrats and nobles in Wales from the birth of Charlemagne in 742 until the end of the 1535. What happened in 1535 that made it a significant date.  In that year that the first Laws in Wales Act was passed. The legal system of England was extended to Wales, and the norms of English administration were introduced, including the imposition of English as the language of governance. You can read about theseActs on Wikipedia.


The United Empire Loyalist Project and the Collaborative Profile of the Week Present

Duncan Robertson

Duncan Robertson loyally served the King of England, during the American Revolution. Let’s see what we can do for his profile.

  • This profile is well on it’s way to being a super profile. There is information and explanatory text, but it needs sources and inline references. See also his brotherHugh’s profile.
  • There are some sources on the profile. But some of them are unclear as to their nature, and where I might find them. (I’m not familiar with Canadian sources)
  • His wife’s profile mentions they had no children. That should be reflected in his profile.
  • Let’s add some general detail about what Jessup’s Regiment was involved in during Robertson’s enlistment.
  • Pictures? Background?

United Empire Loyalist Project

A United Empire Loyalist is a title given to any individual, male or female, who was a Loyalist (as defined below), and all their lineal descendants.
Any individual who can document their lineage to a Loyalist may become a regular member of the United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada (UELAC), regardless of their citizenship or residency. These individuals may use the honorary post-nominal UE as a membership identifier, however this confers no special status or privilege.

Individuals may also become associate members to gain access to the genealogical resources held by the UELAC branches which are located in a number of communities throughout Canada; frequently associate members are individuals who claim Loyalist descent and are undertaking research to substantiate their claim.

Definition of a Loyalist

(aka Loyalist Ancestor):

  • Either male or female, as of 19 April 1775, a resident of the American colonies, and joined the Royal Standard prior to the Treaty of Separation of 1783, or otherwise demonstrated loyalty to the Crown, and settled in territory remaining under the rule of the Crown; or
  • A soldier who served in an American Loyalist Regiment and was disbanded in Canada; or
  • A member of the Six Nations of either the Grand River or the Bay of Quinte Reserve who is descended from one whose migration was similar to that of other Loyalists.


The Notable Project and the Collaborative Profile of the Week Present

Thomas Posey (1750-1818)

The Notables Project thought it would be a great idea to select not only an historical figure but one with references to a celebration going on all year. 2016 is the Bicentennial celebration of the founding of the state of Indiana, and as such our choice is one of Indiana’s founding fathers, Thomas Posey.

Thomas Posey was born in Virginia and at a key point became the 2nd and Final Governor of the Indiana Territory, in the years 1813 to 1816. He was the man who carried the governance of the state from territory into statehood. He had previously been a US Senator and a Lieutenant Governor, so he had a rich political history. He was also instrumental in the Revolutionary War, so he is a great choice for collaboration.

His profile is a bit blank at the moment – no family members – no biography. So this is a great opportunity to step in and add to a great historical figure’s profile and to celebrate a historical moment with the state of Indiana.

Some possible items to add:

  • Did Thomas marry and have children?
  • Can we connect him to the global tree
  • There has been an ongoing discussion about the parentage of Thomas. It has been claimed that he was the son of George Washington. I don’t think we’re going to solve this, but a couple of paragraphs discussing the topic would be in order. There’s adetailed article on the topic in the Indiana Magazine of History.
  • Thomas’s political accomplishments (maybe in a timeline).
  • His Revolutionary War Service

It’s helpful to the collaboration and to save duplication of work, if you post an answer here before working on some aspect of the profile. But please feel free to simply add to the profile whatever you’ve found out with it’s source.

Notables Project

Not surprisingly, the goal of the Notables Project is to add notable figures from world history and current events to our Wikitree global family tree. If you’d like to join the great team of project members working on these profiles, the Notables Project would love to have you.

Thank you.
