Now that it is official, how about an update to the profile of Meghan Markle including her new status as finance' to UK's Prince Harry? There should be plenty of information about her in the media in the next few days.

 

Here is one story with a lot of information that may need some verification:

Thanks!

This is a great idea. I wonder if Prince Harry's profile is updated as well...

Other researchers claim it is erroneous to claim that Meghan Markle's ancestor is John Hussey, 1st Baron Hussey, of Sleaford. Although she probably descends from Captain Christopher Hussey.

Oh dear.  It'll never go away now.  Somebody has told the media he's researched it (in Ancestral File)

Here's the Captain

And the Baron, in case they get disconnected

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hussey-188

We give the Baron a descent from William the Lion, and Henry II through Longespee, and a somewhat Uncertain line from King John through the problematic Isolde de Mortimer.

 

 

Her ancestry has been discusssed on the soc.genealogy,medieval site for a few days, principally around the Hussey connection.

There is a note on John Hussey's profile, (Christoper's father), that he isn't the son of George Hussey, and not to add him back as father, but someone has done just that about a month ago.

John's bio says a Hussey married the Conquerer's aunt.  But Stewart Baldwin doesn't even have her on the false children list
