The ancestry of the English royal family can be traced back through the Scottish and then the Irish royal lines, and then back to Magog the grandson of Noah, and back to Adam. If you can trace your ancestry to the English royal line, you can trace it back to Adam. There are many generations of the English monarchy, and millions of people have descended from them. Could you be one of them?
(1). Ann Abel is known to be descended from the English royal family. However, there is no documentary evidence that she is the mother of Lois Sullard, although it is believed to be the case. For details see RootsWeb.
(2). Henry I was called "Beauclerc" because of his administrative skills.
(3). Tea, the wife of Heremon, got a fortress built for herself called Teamhair or "house of Tea". There are some who say she was the daughter of Zedekiah, the last king of Israel, but this cannot be true because according to the Irish history (for example Keating) she was the daughter of Lughaidh, the cousin of Milesius, and their common grandfather was Breoghan.
(4). According to Keating, Feinius Farsaidh, the grandson of Magog, and his second cousin Gaedeal (grandson of Gomer) went to the plain of Shinar to study languages because they were interested in the variety of languages that existed after the dispersion from the Tower of Babel. They were especially interested in Hebrew and they learned it from Eber, the great-grandson of Shem. This might explain the apparent existence of Hebraisms in the Irish language, for example Heber, the brother of Heremon, might be named after the Semitic Eber. Also we find Heber Scott and Heber Glunfionn among the descendants of Feinius.
