Notes

All of my own direct line ancestors/descendants have CAPITALS for their first names so if you link to one of them you will find navigation easy.

On the direct ancestor heritage line HP01 leads to all the House of Plantagenet Kings and Queens of England. Follow the direct line via capital first names to THOMAS then follow his wife URSULA b1490 and the code HP01. If you follow the ancestor line HP02from CATHERINE Dowde b1844 it eventually leads to Richard I Comté de Rouen which the Cushing line via THOMAS’s wife also leads to, but via a French/Canadian ancestral route. It passes through some very famous people HP03 a small detour from Simon III deMontfort, it rejoined HP03 just takes a slightly alternative ancestral pathway. both in France and England including all the De-Montfort’s, so it is a fun journey through history, and then reaches a different one of Richards sons, RICHARD II le Bon de Normandie who is the brother of the HP01 ancestor ROBERT de Normandie Comte d'Évreux et Archevêque de Rouen HP02 line. Be careful here as there are two names in CAPITALS in one family!

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 Continue to follow KF01 to CHARLES the Bald King b823 then CG02 to CHARLEMAGNE (KARL I - Charles the Great) and yes the “Father of Europe” is also a direct ancestor. FK01 goes to the very early Kings of the Franks, back to NEROGAISE Ragaise de Toxandrie b270! If you are following KF01when you getto HAWISE Vexin 1042 you can continue on the KF01 via his father or take the RE04 pathway via his mother and go back via direct ancestors to the Roman Empire and Flavius Theodosius "the Great” of Rome b347. If you are on the FK01 pathway you can also join the RE04 ancestral path at GARNIER d'Herbauges b732.

Follow WC01 from THOMAS’s wife URSULA b1490 as an alternative but dict route to WILLIAM the Conqueror via the Norman Kings rather than the less direct line via his half sister Lady CHRISTINE de Conteville b1035. From her you can also go to WILLIAM via thesame code as she was his half sister, thus via her father.

HP02 takes you back to the earliest ancestors of the Dowde family as they join 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. DR01 of the Carrington family goes back to CAIRPE Cairbre Crommchenn MacDaire c0015. So if ancient Scottish and Irish history is of interest and the Kings and Queens of Dál Riata follow the Rankin family from my mothers mother JESSIE Rankin and then DR01 all the way back more than 2,007 years of direct ancestral line!

If you are following HP02 why not take a detour at NICOLAS b1525 on the pathway marked TB01 to The Chief Butlers of Ireland a genealogical journey to a lavish and fascinating life of one of the most powerful families in Irish history called “the Butlers”.The lives of the Butlers were defined by incredible wealth, power and splendour. The family held the title of Chief Butler of Ireland and was later awarded the Earldom of Ormond(e) and a number of subsidiary titles. They were based at Kilkenny Castle for more than five centuries (from 1391 to 1935), and at other seats including Nenagh, Cahir, Roscrea, Kilcash and Thurles. Our direct ancestral line joins them at the 4th Chief Butler 4th Chief Butler in 1242 when he married Lady Joan FitzJohn one of our ancestors.

If you really want a very long journey through ancestral history taking you back via the Councils to the Roman Empire to DAHN Konige born 400 years before Christ in 0400BC follow CR002 from OLIVE Maud (ne Hodges) Cushing b1907.

FR02 takes you to MARGAUERITE Collette Filles du Roi. The King's Daughters of the King (filles du roi or filles du roy in the spelling of the era) is a term used to refer to the approximately 800 young French women from Paris who immigrated to New France between 1663 and 1673 as part of a program sponsored by King Louis XIV.

To get to Henry VIII HE01 you need first to get to Henry VII who seized the throne from King Richard III after the Battle of Bosworth Field in1485 and therefore wasn’t the rightful king of England. In fact, Henry VII’s claim to the throne was extremely tenuous; he was the great-great-grandson of the direct line to King EDWARD III’s then follow his fourth son with his third wife. Should the line of direct succession have continued, Henry would never have gotten anywhere near the crown!

You can follow RF01 to the the earlier Kings of the English follow via the direct line to RALPH de Limisi then follow his Lady CHRISTINE b1030. RO01 from Lady CHRISTINE leads to ROLLO (860-930) The famous Viking chieftain who became the founder and firstruler of the region of Normandy. He converted to Christianity as part of a deal with the Frankish king Charles the Simple (893-923 CE) in 911 CE (changing his name to Robert), the Frankish king Charles is also a direct ancestor. Again there are two different family lines that lead to ROLLO but I have used the same code. Follow KN01 for EDWARD of Woodstock (1330-1376), who became known as the Black Prince and was one of the most famous commanders during the Hundred Years’ War. He was the son and heir apparent of EDWARD III of England

Going back (ancestors) to go forward (descendants of those ancestors) so to speak to follow the line to JOHN Cushing then Follow the suffix TS01 for George Cushing of Thursford Steam fame; Follow the Suffix PC01 for Peter Cushing of Star Wars and Hammer House of Horror fame. Follow the direct like to PETER Cushing 1558 then follow suffix FF01 for his son Mathew to find the American Founding Father; You can also follow AG01 suffix line to reach Caleb Cushing the Attorney General of the US under President Franklin Pierce; Follow AC01 to Lt. Col. Alonzo Hersford Cushing Captain of Battery A, 4th US Artillery in Battle of Gettysburg; SC01 leads to William Cushing who was one of the original five associate justices of the United States Supreme Court; HC01 leads to Harvey Williams Cushing (1869 – 1939) A pioneer of brain surgery. Just keep going forward if you want to find the famous socialites known as the "Fabulous Cushing Sisters" in the 1920s via CS01 from Harvey and yes one married President Roosevelts son, but expect lots of divorces in these three party animals! Married six times in total, their last names read like a ‘Who’s Who’ in American aristocracy: Roosevelt, Astor, Whitney, Mortimer, Fosburgh and Paley

LC01 leads to one of the first of the Americans families in Canada and to his son Lemuel Cushing (1842 – 1881) who became a lawyer and politician in Quebec.

If it is a gun fighter who crossed paths with Doc Holiday, Wyatt Earp and the James Younger Brothers, you want find simply follow OT01 to the infamous Johnny Ringo (sometimes mistakenly stated as Ringgold). The fastest gun in the west if you believe all the hype in the films.

Go to Gilbert (1608) and then follow CA02 to Job Cushing (1869 – 1944); LS01 leads to Luther Stearns Cushing (1803–1856) who was the author of one of the earliest works on parliamentary procedure, "Rules of Proceeding and Debate in Deliberative Assemblies" commonly known as Cushing's Manual; WB01 leads to William Baker Cushing another US Civil War Hero.

Cardinal Cushing CC01 unfortunately is a descendant of the Irish branch but many of the records were destroyed. I did manage to track him back to Cork in Ireland where I know the family went to, but the rest is work in progress as I only add confirmed data.

To acknowledge those who fought in wars I have added the following codes to their names:

MS01 - World War I (1914-1918)
MS02 - World War II (1939–1945()
MS03 - Crimean War (1853-1856)
MS04 - American Civil War (1861-1865)
MS05 - American Revolutionary War (1775-1783)
MS06 - Cornish Rebellion of 1497
MS07 - English Civil Wars, also called Great Rebellion, (1642–51)
MS08 - Wars of the Roses (1455 to 1487)
MS09 - Battle of Hastings (14 October 1066)
MS10 - Hundred Years’ War (1337 to 1453)
MS11 - Peasants' Revolt 1381
MS12 - Cochise War
CR002

On the direct Cushing ancestor heritage line, if you really want a very long journey through ancestral history taking you back via the Councils to the Roman Empire to DAHN Konige born 400 years before Christ in 0400BC follow CR002 from OLIVE Maud (ne Hodges) Cushing b1907. You can get to the same place by following KF01 to Judith of Flanders the daughter of CHARLES b823 then switch via her husband to CR002 or if you want to get to CHARLEMAGNE follow CR002 then switch to CHARLES b823 and CG02, don’t worry you are still following a direct ancestral line. 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!
LU02

LU02 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.
