I thought some of you might be interested to know that we are related to Alfred the Great and Edward the Confessor (Edward I) of England! This is how it works:
Maria Johanna Schonken married William Anderson in 1806. Her mother was Elizabeth van Ellewee, whose paternal grandfather was Johannes van Ellewee, married to Maria du Plessis (b.1702). Maria's grandfather was Jean du Plessis (1548-1640) of Poitiers, France. His paternal grandmother was Guionne de Laval, whose father was Guillaume de Montmorency. This was a noble French family which you can trace back the patrilineal line sixteen generations to Bouchard de Montmorency (957-1020), whose father was Alberic of England, son of Edward I, son of Alfred the Great (and you can go back further to the kings of Wessex in the seventh century!).
Clear as mud, you say. Well, it's all on my family tree, which you can read on <http://trees.ancestry.co.uk/tree/19913420/family?fpid=876409813> if they will let you at ancestry.co.uk <http://ancestry.co.uk/>
-- Best wishes,
Allan
