Statement by Richardson

"In recent time, I've worked out several new royal lines for three 17th Century New World immigrants, namely Frances, Jane, and Katherine Deighton, each of whom has modern descendants. The first line featured below is through King John's alleged illegitimate daughter, Isabel, wife of Richard Fitz Ives. I use the word "alleged" here as neither King John or any of his immediate successors appear to have acknowledged Isabel or her issue as royal kinsfolk. However, Isabel is styled daughter of King John ["filie Regis Joh’is"] in an ancient obit of her recorded in Cornwall records [see Herald & Genealogist 7 (1873): 229–231].

"Besides the Fitz Ives line, I've dredged up three additional Plantagenet descents for the Deighton sisters, interestingly all being lines from illegitimate children of various kings."[2]
