NOTE:  Henry, known as "Beauclerc" or "good law" was also famous for his concubines and the children they bore him. His favorite concubine who stuck with him all his life and bore him four children including Rohesia (Rohese) who married Henry Pomeroy, the 20th great grandfather of Frances Pomeroy, mother-in-law of James William (JW) Sinnock. By his legitimate wife, Matilda of Scotland, Henry had a daughter, also Matilda who married Geoffrey Plantagenet. They in turn had a son Henry II, who inherited the kingdom and had a son John "Lackland", the common royal ancestor by separate paths from both Cynthia Mills and her husband, Roger Tandy Burrus, JW's maternal great grandparents. John became most famous perhaps for signing the Magna Carta, often cited as the first step from total feudal sovereignty to democratic rule. Thus, three separate ancestral lines link JW to Henry I. Henry's ancestry is well established, even leading to Adam and Eve and the Greek gods and goddesses by some accounts. His father, William the Conqueror descends from Rollo the Viking and royal Scandinavian lines while his mother, Matilda of Flanders descends from Charlemagne and his royal Frankish lines, both connected by myths to ancient Troy and even biblical patriarchs. Sir Isaac Newton, perhaps the most famous scientist of all time who invented calculus to prove his theory of gravity, even Sir Isaac wrote a serious treatise linking Henry I to Troy. Maternal lines of the royals ensure that nearly all European royalty by Charlemagne's time are JW's direct ancestors. By the way, I suspect most European families can trace thier ancestry back to Henry, because I suspect (both mathematically and culturally) most families, have at least one link to nobility somewhere back there, commonly, as the Pomeroy family, by bastardy. Most noble marriages were arranged, some went well, but not many. The men had the advantage, they didn't show. The women went on "holdiday" -- abroad. Some were treated well, especially early on, like Rohesia others were cast aside as shamefull, especially later and even perhaps more so today (my daugher is an adopted "daughter of shame", I also sired a "child of shame")
