An illegitimate son of the Duke of York?

John Gibbes is attached as a son of Frederick, duke of York and Albany, but both the baptismal record and the biography linked on his Wikitree profile list another father for him. I move that if no proof can be found of this filiation, that he be disconnected from the duke.

Prince Frederick lived in Hanover 1781-1787 attending the University of Göttingen. Assuming his mother is correct I'm having a hard time understanding when this particular relationship happened.

This thread has a summary of his supposed mistresses & illegitimate children. Gibbes is listed as 'fictional'.

Absolutely. Too much claiming of fathers without proof. A serious case should be made before claiming any parent especially one outside of marriage.
