It appears there are a considerable amount of Sources supporting the lineage of Jane Preston descending from Phineas Preston and Mary Stewart. Phineas Archibald Preston, 1672 - 1703 Phineas Archibald Preston was born in 1672, at birth place, to George Preston and Alice Preston (born Plant). George was born circa 1650, in Lichfield, Staffordshire, UK. Alice was born circa 1631, in UK. Phineas was baptized on month day 1670, at baptism place.

As indicated on the profile, we need some reliable sources, not just unsourced family trees.   When books like Burkes Peerage do not acknowledge a child of a "noble", it starts to look like people are just trying to connect themselves to a famous lineage.   Keep looking....

There is an article in the Southern Presbyterian Review by Dr. Barry Waugh that says when Alexander Breckenridge died, his brother-in-law John Preston ordered an obelisk to be made for his grave and that Alexander's son Robert married his first cousin Letitia Preston.

This information is also found in The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography.
