Attempted Royal Descents of Eibhlín Sigerson Piatt (disproved)

Eibhlín Humphreys (nee Sigerson Piatt) was my grand-aunt. I knew her, and talked to her about the family tree before she died in 1986.

Many years later, I discovered her ancestry went back to 17th century America. In 2010, I realised from [Roberts, 2008] that this could lead to a Royal Descent. Unfortunately, two attempts to construct a Royal Descent for her have failed.


Descent from Henry III (disproved)


Descent from Henry II (disproved)
