Can anybody help me to sort out this line? I don't know if anybody does that here. I just don't want the information getting "lost" because I couldn't trace it back.

I don't see King Henry III on a profile here, but if somebody can find it and figure this out, that would be great. I honestly have no idea how to connect these lines. I don't completely understand the newspaper article from the archives. If you look in the profile that I've made for him, you'll see that I tried to explain what I thought that it meant. Thank you for any help that you can give.

As per request, I've added "euroaristo" to the tags.

You might like to add tag euroaristo so the right people should see it

The William Stanley mentioned in the article


The plantagenet ancestry is via his maternal line.

I think the Burke's citation in the obit is for this chart, which goes down as far as the Warburtons


Here is Leo's site. He does list his sources. He does not usually add children if they did not have offspring - https://genealogics.org/descendtext.php?personID=I00000808&tree=LEO&display=block&generations=8

So the claim is that your James William Domville (1817 - abt. 1883) is a descendant of Peter Domville and his wife Margaret Carrington (who have profiles on WikiTree).  As your article states, a descent can be found from Margaret Carrington through Warburton-Stanley-Goushill-FitzAlan to Henry III, king of England.

However, you may have a problem connecting James William Domville to Peter Domville.  The dumville.org site says that:

“Edmund Dumbile was a hatmaker in Olney, a town in north Buckinghamshire, in the middle 1700s. Nothing is known of his parentage or birthplace. The earliest record available on Edmund comes from the Olney Parish Registers (1665-1812). An entry on November 30, 1731 has the christening of "John Dumbile, the son of Edmund", and later, a christening of "Elianor, daughter of Edmund and Sarah Dumbile" on April 12, 1734. There is no further record of Elianor and some confusion over John, as mentioned in a subsequent paragraph.”

Though it' s hard to see how they get Henry to be the son of Edmund and born in Ireland.

I suspect tne General claimed descent from the Irish gentry line


Clearly there are no male lines from Sir Thomas - no legitimate lines - but he could have had brothers or cousins in Ireland, as they were there two generations earlier.
