Notes

HP02

On the direct Cushing ancestor heritage line HP02 leads Richard I Comté de Rouen which the Cushing line via THOMAS’s wife also leads to, but via a French/Canadian ancestral route. HP02 takes you back to the earliest ancestors of the Dowde family as they rejoin the Cushing family at Richard I, so then follow the direct line of the Cushing family to SVEIDI 'the Sea King’ Act” c0720 and his possible father. Dates before 1500 are usually approximate as births and deaths were often not registered only names of children. I have used Wills, graves, encyclopaedia references, books and web sources such as Wikipedia and have only recorded on this tree plausible dates, the web is unfortunately full of impossible records!
KF01

On the direct Cushing ancestor heritage line KF01 just follow HP02 or HP01 until you get to ISABELLA Heligan b1307 then follow KF01 the line passing through her mother MARGARET to get to the Roman Emperors VIA the Kings of Bourgogne. KF01 leads to the Kings of France. Dates before 1500 are usually approximate as births and deaths were often not registered only names of children. I have used Wills, graves, encyclopaedia references, books and web sources such as Wikipedia and have only recorded on this tree plausible dates, the web is unfortunately full of impossible records!
LU01

LU01 leads via Simon de Montfort Sixth Earl of Leicester who gives his name to De Montfort University who is credited with establishing the first Parliament of England in 1265. He is the son of Simon de Montfort, 5th Earl of Leicester, a French nobleman and crusader, and Alix de Montmorency to his paternal grandmother Amicia de Beaumont, the senior co-heiress to the Earldom of Leicester and a large estate owned by her brother Robert de Beaumont, 4th Earl of Leicester, in England and his father who took part in the Albigensian cusades. With the irrevocable loss of Normandy, King John refused to allow the elder Simon to succeed to the earldom of Leicester and instead placed the estates and title into the hands of Montfort senior's cousin Ranulf, the Earl of Chester. Napoleon Bonaparte described Simon de Montfort as "one of the greatest Englishmen".

His father Simon de Montfort, 5th Earl of Leicester (c. 1175 – 25 June 1218), Also Viscount of Albi, Béziers and Carcassonne from 1213, as well as Count of Toulouse from 1215. known as Simon IV (or V) de Montfort and as Simon de Montfort the Elder, was a French nobleman and knight of the early 13th century. He is widely regarded as one of the great military commanders of the Middle Ages. He took part in the Fourth Crusade and was one of the prominent figures of the Albigensian Crusade.
