Interesting. I am 22 steps away, but 25th cousins, once removed.
I'm 17 degrees and 27th cousins.
No, 19 degrees and 7th cousins four times removed

16 degrees and 6th cousins 3x removed smiley

My wife is 15 degrees (and me 16 through her). She's also a 7th cousin 3x removed through a slightly different path.

David, only answering as the result made me laugh. WikiTree believes Hopper and I are 24th cousins four times removed but Uncertain. The Uncertainty, as with many things leading back to certain noble families, lies with Margaret (Hollingsworth) Walker and her place in the Hollingsworth family. If anyone cares to take another crack at this, there is a g2g for it.

WikiTree places my connection with Adeliza FitzGilbert (Clare) de Clare (abt 1069-1138).

Thanks for the star, SJ. And, speaking of Adeliza, can one be a fitz if a daughter rather than a son?
The way I would see it......once FitzGilbert became a "complete" last name.

"Boats Horizon" Watercolor by Trish, adopted born Loretta- Trish Schmig is my adopted married name.  Edward is  20 degrees in my Beeson line, which I am still investigating for more sources, if anyone can help.    I recently painted this with watercolor pencil, a hobby I just got back into.   Looking at his paintings, wow !  It's back to more lessons!  But it inspired me to add it as an interest to my profile Maybe I finally got it to link!  Had to put it to an unlocked profile I manage

David, I thought I'd take a shot at working on Hopper's wife's line. It appears that she was a descendent of the Revolutionary War era portrait artist, William Henry Verstille. Samples of his work hang in both the Smithsonian and the Met in New York.

20 degrees. A tad remote at 27th cousins once removed and (uncertain) at that. It seems our relationship is through a man who resided in Normandy France, one Osbern de Bolebec (ca. 952 - 1035). His son, connecting through my Wade line, comes over to England with William the first while another son of the same is thought to be Adeliza FitzGilbert de Clare's grandfather. I've also got de Clare's among my ancestors, and so I imagine there could be other connections in there as well.
