I woke up from my old man’s nap and looked at declaring ny unborn granddaughter to be of Royal Blood. I was prepared to bring forth John Wilson, to do battle with the Witches of San Rafael and Salem. I had left a message on Bobby Dew’s FB telling him his child was going to be my grandchild. I ask…….”Are you qualified?” There is a very good chance Bobby is related to the Plantagenets. We are kin to the Cliffords. I found a Rosamond Clifford Tomkyn that led me to the most Royal Family of Britain. When I went do Sonoma for my second visit I brought a genealogical book. My big fight with Heather Hanson, was that she was – choosing men beneath her! This is a dream come true. Our War of the Roses……..is over! Peace!
The name Dew come from Eu……….d’Ue.
About Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal
This database is part of a series called The Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal which traces the descendants of Edward III, King of England (1312-77). Lines are traced out in descendency tables until about the middle of the 19th Century. The remainder of the database contains the descendents of the people last named in the tables laid out in order of primogeniture. For these more recent generations full birth, marriage, and death dates are given. Vital information is provided for people listed in the tables when possible. The following volumes are included in the database:
- George, Duke of Clarence (a fourth great grandchild of Edward III and brother of King Edward IV)
- Isabel, Countess of Essex and Eu (a third great grandchild of Edward III and aunt of George, Anne, and Edward IV)
- Anne, Duchess of Exeter (a fourth great grandchild of Edward III and sister to George of Clarence and King Edward IV)
- Lady Elizabeth Mortimer (a great grandchild of Edward III and wife of Henry Lord Percy, K.G. and then of Thomas, Lord Camoys, K.G.)
Isabel of Cambridge, Countess of Essex (1409 – 2 October 1484) was the only daughter of Richard, 3rd Earl of Cambridge and Anne Mortimer. She was the sister of Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York, and like him a great-grandchild of Edward III of England.
Isabel of York, the only daughter of Richard of Conisburgh, 3rd Earl of Cambridge, and Lady Anne de Mortimer, was born about 1409. Through her father, she was the granddaughter of King Edward III’s fourth surviving son, Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York, and his first wife, Isabella of Castile. Her mother was the daughter of Roger Mortimer, 4th Earl of March (grandson of Lionel of Antwerp) and Lady Alianore Holland (granddaughter of Lady Joan of Kent, Princess of Wales).
Isabel’s father, Richard, Earl of Cambridge, was beheaded on 5 August 1415 for his part in the Southampton Plot against King Henry V, and although the Earl’s title was forfeited, he was not attainted, and Isabel’s brother, Richard, then aged four, was his father’s heir. Moreover, within a few months of his father’s death, Richard’s childless uncle, Edward of Norwich, 2nd Duke of York, was slain at the Battle of Agincourt on 25 October 1415, and Isabel’s brother was eventually his uncle’s heir as well.
Marriages and issue
In 1412, at three years of age, Isabel was betrothed to Sir Thomas Grey (1404 – d. before 1426), son and heir of Sir Thomas Grey (c.1385–1415) of Heaton in Norham, Northumberland, and his wife, Alice Neville, the daughter of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland. The marriage took place on 18 February 1413. They had one son, also called Thomas Grey (c.1423–c.1493). The elder Sir Thomas Grey was an associate of Isabel’s father who also lost his life in the Southampton Plot.
