Plantagenet Ancestry: A Study in Colonial and Medieval Families

click here for the source page for Royal Ancestry

Douglas Richardson's 2004 Plantagenet Ancestry "documents lines of descent for approximately 190 seventeenth-century North American colonists from the Plantagenet dynasty that ruled England from 1154 to 1485."[1] The 2011 update covers more than 200 colonists.[2]

Richardson's works are considered reliable, but the Magna Carta Project does not recommend Plantagenet Ancestry as a source for Magna Carta Project profiles because its focus was not on descendants of the Magna Carta Surety Barons. The descendants' entries in Magna Carta Ancestry have updates not included in Plantagenet Ancestry, even though the 2nd editions of both were published the same year.[3] See additional information about Magna Carta-related sources on the Magna Carta Project Reliable Sources page. For other "Reliable Sources" for pre-1700 profiles, see links under this category.

The second edition of Plantagenet Ancestry (2011) consists of three volumes. Please include volume, page(s), chapter (family name or lordship), and the number of the entry in that chapter. The examples below are for a particular person's entry.

Inline Citation Example
(provide a link to Google Books' snippit view for the specific page if possible)

<ref name="PA">Douglas Richardson. ''Plantagenet Ancestry: A Study in Colonial and Medieval Families,'' 3 vols, ed. Kimball G. Everingham, 2nd edition (Salt Lake City: the author, 2011), [https://books.google.com.au/books?id=kjme027UeagC&lpg=PP1&pg=PA94#v=onepage&q&f=false volume I, page 94] ABNEY 15.</ref>

Note: Don't forget to change the specific volume, page, chapter, and number from the example to reflect what you are citing (and delete or change the URL also).

The full footnote results in:[4]

and so do subsequent references, using

Richardson's editor for these series, including the five-volume Royal Ancestry (2013), was Kimball G. Everingham.

Please note: It was pointed out that WikiTree recommends that named references be within quotation marks - for example, ref name="PA" (see this section of the Sources help page). I've changed the examples to reflect this, although both work (with or without quotation marks).

Please note that if your named citation uses quotation marks, the subsequent references need to also use quotation marks, and vice versa. The names need to match exactly, to include capitalization.

If you have more than one entry that you're referring to, you'll need different names for them. One suggested naming scheme is to use the volume number and page number with pa - for example, name="paI94"

Cheers, Liz
