Richard Bernard is double first cousin to Willliam Bernard who immigrated from England to Virginia about 22 years before Richard. Being a double first cousin is the same genetically as being a sibling. William and Richard have the same grandparents - all four of them, because their fathers, Richard Bernard and Francis Bernard, who were brothers, married the Woolhouse sisters, Elizabeth and Mary.
