no. He's not listed in Richardson's Magna Carta Ancestry as a Gateway Ancestor (just looked through the H's in the index/front of Vol 1 - no "Hedge" or anything close).
Are you thinking of the Questionable Gateway Ancestors category? I just recently working on a profile that was removed from Gateway Ancestors category because, although he was Royal Ancestry, he was not a lineal descendant of a Magna Carta surety baron. If there is a category for Royal descent, I haven't heard of it, but I'm more focused on MC descent.
