April, thanks for oticing that. It might be a result of a merge but clearly it is wrong. I have removed Richard Daubney-42 as the father of John. Also Richard coudl not have been married to Suzanne Lezay since they lived two centuries apart so I left Suzanne as the mother of John.

The father of John Daubney-41, Richard Daubney-42, is out of sequence with birth/death dates of 1790-1877. The rest of the paternal tree is also out of sequence.

Dawbney-3 and Daubney-41 appear to represent the same person because: sons have same name - same d.o.b.

John is 18 degrees from Elinor Glyn, 17 degrees from Frances Weidman and 16 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
