     ; Faris (1999, p. 393) "EDWARD V PLANTAGENET, Duke of Cornwall, Earl of Chester, Prince of Wales, son and heir, born in sanctuary at Westminster on 4 Nov. 1470 while his father was in exile, succeeded father as King of England 9 Apr. 1483, but was deposed by his uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, 25 June 1483, before he had been crowned, designated illegitimate by Parliament owing to a contract preceding his parents' marriage between Edward IV and Eleanor Butler; said to have died in the Tower, with his brother Richard. C.P. 8:454 (1932). C.P. 12(2):910-913 (1959) ("whether eventually murdered by Richard III or survived him, to be killed by Henry VII, is a problem which defies a positive solution")."

; Edward V, age 12, the elder son of Edward IV and the tool of the competing ambitions of his paternal uncle, Richard, duke of Gloucester, and his maternal uncle Earl Rivers. Gloucester arrested Rivers, confined Edward and his younger brother in the Tower of London, had the boys declared illegitimate, and assumed the throne as Richard III. The children disappeared, probably murdered. According to a theory promoted by the Tudors after 1485, they were smothered in their sleep on Richard's orders. Their death provoked great public indignation. (In 1674, archaeologists unearthed in the Tower skeletons of two boys age 12 or 13 and 10, the ages of the princes in 1483.)8 He was King of England in 1483.9

She married Henry on January 18, 1486 at Westminster, symbolically ending the Wars of the Roses by joining the houses of York and Lancaster under the house of Tudor. Their marriage appears to have been a happy one, and they had 7 children, four of whom survived to adulthood. Elizabeth died at the Tower of London on her 37th birthday. Henry, despite his reputation for thrift, honoured her with a lavish funeral. Bio by: Kristen Conrad

; Per Genealogics:
     "Elizabeth of York was born on 11 February 1465 at Westminster Palace, daughter of Edward IV, king of England, and Elizabeth Widville. Elizabeth had had no choice when marriages were proposed for her; dutifully she always had to oblige, and always did fulfil her obligations. All her life she was dominated by stronger women: first her grandmother, the old Duchess of York; then her mother, hated so much by the old Duchess of York; and lastly by her mother-in-law, Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond. She may have been cold towards her own mother, but at least she did have a friend in her mother-in-law.
     "By the time of her father's death she had been through the turmoil of a Sanctuary in Westminster and been promised in marriage three times: first to Henry, Earl of Richmond, her future husband; then to Edward, Prince of Wales (son of King Henry VI); and lastly to the French Dauphin.
     "When her uncle, King Richard III, was killed at the battle of Bosworth, the Earl of Richmond became king as Henry VII. Elizabeth's mother, Elizabeth Widville, the Queen Dowager, and the Countess of Richmond had secretly agreed that she would marry Henry VII, which she did several months after his coronation, on 18 January 1486 at Westminster.
     "Seven children were dutifully born but, though faithful, Henry VII was a cold husband and father. The only time they showed feelings publicly was when they consoled each other at the death of their eldest son, Arthur, Prince of Wales. Shortly after, Elizabeth again became pregnant. On 2 February 1503, a daughter, Katherine, was born. However, only nine days later, Elizabeth died and was sincerely mourned by Henry VII."9

     DEATH     21 Apr 1509 (aged 52), Richmond, London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, Greater London, England
     English Monarch. He was the son of Edmund Tudor and Margaret Beaufort, who was a descendant of Edward III. His claim to the throne was tenuous at best, but Henry won the crown by defeating Richard III at Bosworth Field, ending the Wars of the Roses. He was crowned on October 30, 1485. A Lancastrian, he married Elizabeth of York, the daughter of Edward IV, and united the two factions under the House of Tudor. Henry was then left with the herculean tasks of restoring the power of the monarchy, defeating other claimants to the throne, and replenishing the treasury. It can be debated whether he was a great ruler, but he was most certainly a successful one. He founded a new dynasty, strengthened the throne, and refilled the coffers, both of which had been severely damaged by the Wars of the Roses. Henry died at Richmond at the age of 54, leaving a now rich and powerful nation to his son, Henry VIII. Bio by: Kristen Conrad

     “Henry Tudor was born posthumously on 28 January 1457 in Pembroke Castle, the only child of Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond and Lady Margaret Beaufort. From 1461 until 1470 he was kept in Yorkist custody, but in 1471 he fled to Brittany after the battle of Tewkesbury, where he had to rely on the support of its Duke to be able to live.
     “Henry had been mentioned as a possible husband for Elizabeth of York, the eldest daughter of King Edward IV. When Richard III had usurped the throne, ideas for this marriage were secretly revived by his mother and Elizabeth Woodville, the widow of Edward IV.
     “Even though the Beauforts, the line of his mother, had been excluded from rights to the throne, Henry Tudor was regarded as the Lancastrian champion after the death of Henry VI and his son. The French assisted him with his invasion and, at the battle of Bosworth on 22 August 1485, Richard III was slain so that Henry Tudor became King Henry VII. He was crowned king on 30 October, emphasizing his right by conquest; and only in 1486 did he marry Elizabeth of York, so combining the Yorkist and Lancastrian causes.
     “Henry VII was cautious in the beginning as peace was disturbed by impostors like Lambert Simnel and Perkin Warbeck. His most trusted servants were his companions from his days in exile. To make himself and his dynasty acceptable, he sought alliances for his children with other monarchs.
     “Henry seemed to have been a quite undemonstrative husband and father, perhaps spending too much time in checking the accounts. In the long run he became suspicious, secretive and miserly. It was a great loss to him and his dynasty when his son, Arthur, Prince of Wales, died and a little over a year later was followed by the death of his wife, Elizabeth of York, whom he sincerely mourned. When Henry VII died, he left a country in peace with a full treasury.
     “Henry VII, king of England, died on 21 April 1509 in Sheen Palace.”.5

     "HENRY VII OF ENGLAND, Earl of Richmond, was born posthumously on 28 Jan. 1456/7. He was regarded by the remnants of the Lancastrian party as the hope of Lancaster (though from an illegitimate descent through the Beauforts from John of Gaunt, son of King Edward III) on the extinction of the Royal line of the House of Lancaster. He sought refuge in France and gained the support of King Louis XI. Having raised an army, he landed at Milford Haven in his native Wales in August 1485. He defeated and killed King Richard III at Bosworth Field on 22 Aug. 1485, the last battle of the War of the Roses, was chosen King of England on the battlefield, and was crowned King of England in London on 30 Oct. 1485. Parliament confirmed his accession and he was married at Westminster on 18 Jan. 1486 to ELIZABETH OF YORK (PLANTAGENET), daughter of Edward IV of England (Plantagenet), King of England, by Elizabeth (descendant of Charlemagne), daughter of Richard Wydeville, 1st Earl Rivers [see YORK 6 for her ancestry], thus uniting the opposing houses of Lancaster and York. They had four sons and three daughters. Henry Tudor restored peace and order in England winning the support of the middle classes from which he mainly chose his ministers. The middle classes supported the king in his effort to prevent the nobility from regaining its influence and power, including the right of the nobles to maintain private armies. ELIZABETH OF YORK died at the Tower of London on 11 Feb. 1503. KING HENRY VII OF ENGLAND died at Richmond on 21 Apr. 1509, and was buried at Westminster.

He was King of England, HENRY VII. Henry's first act was to imprison the earl of Warwick, son of the duke of Clarence. His first parliament (1485) confirmed the crown to him and his heirs. Though the traditional medieval checks on the power of the crown were maintained in theory, in practice Henry went a long way toward developing royal powerestablishment of the administrative court later called the Star Chamber (1487), suppression of recalcitrant nobles and livery and maintenance (private armies clothed and supported by nobles and representing a resurgence of feudalism), development of an efficient if arbitrary royal financial system.

Possibly his 2nd wife, but probably his only wife.11,12,13,14,4

     ; Per Med Lands:
     "GODWIN, son of WULFNOTH & his wife --- ([993]-Winchester 15 Apr 1053, bur Winchester Old Minster[504]). His parentage is confirmed by the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle which records that "Beorhtric the brother of the ealdorman Eadric" denounced "Wulfnoth a nobleman of Sussex" to the king in [1008] for unspecified crimes, after which Wulfnoth fled the country only to return, take 20 ships from the king´s fleet, and ravage the south coast and burn the rest of the king´s navy, one manuscript naming him "quendam nobilem virum…Wlnothum (patrem Godwini ducis)"[505]. Florence of Worcester names "Brihtricus, Ælfricus, Goda, Ægelwinus, Ægelwardus, Ægelmærus, pater Wlnothi, patris West-Saxonum ducis Godwini" as the brothers of "Edricum…Ægelrici filium…ducem", and within a few lines in the same paragraph repeats the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle´s report about "Brihtric" accusing "Suth-Saxonicum ministrum Wlnothum" of treachery[506]. The two texts just quoted are contradictory, when read together, in suggesting that Wulfnoth, accused by Beorhtric, was the same person as Beorhtric´s nephew. Freeman argues cogently that Florence did not intend to identify Wulfnoth, the supposed nephew of Eadric, with Wulfnoth, the alleged traitor, arguing along similar lines to what has just been said[507]. He highlights that Florence does not make this connection in his two passages, although the one closely follows the other and it seems surprising that such a link would have been omitted if it had existed. In addition, from a chronological point of view, it is unlikely that Godwin was the grandson of the brother of Eadric "Streona", who died in 1017 and about whom there is no indication that he was very old at that time. The chronology suggests, rather, that Eadric "Streona" and Godwin´s father would have been contemporaries. Another interesting fact is that Ætheling Æthelstan, under his will dated [1014], made a bequest to "Godwine, Wulfnoth's son, the estate at Compton which his father possessed", listed second among the bequests to non-members of the royal family[508]. The wording of the bequest is consistent with the land in question having been confiscated, and such confiscation would have followed if Earl Godwin´s father had been the Wulfnoth Child who was accused of treachery. Freeman highlights that Domesday Book records the two places ini Sussex called Compton as having been held, respectively, by King Harold II (Earl Godwin´s son) and a tenant of Earl Godwin[509]. This strongly suggests that the beneficiary under Ætheling Æthelstan´s will was Earl Godwin, and that he was the son of Wulfnoth Child, the alleged traitor. In conclusion, it appears unlikely that Florence of Worcester was correct in stating that Godwin´s father was Eadric "Streona"´s nephew. Godwin was installed as Earl in 1018 by King Canute, and as bajulus[510] over almost the whole kingdom[511]. He heads the lists of witnesses to all the king's lay charters after 1023[512], indicating an unrivalled position of power. The earliest reference to Godwin in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is in 1036 when he is recorded as supporting Queen Emma in opposing the accession of King Harold I[513]. Earl of Wessex. Godwin was probably installed as earl of Wessex in [1040/41] by King Harthacnut, as there appear to be no earlier sources which refer to his territory. Florence of Worcester records that King Harthacnut ordered "Godwinum West-Saxonum…comites" and others to burn Worcester, dated to 1041[514]. Godwin appears to have played a major role in the accession and acceptance in England of King Edward "the Confessor" in 1042, and in 1045 married his daughter to the king. However, his relations with the king became tense following a dispute over the appointment of a new archbishop of Canterbury in 1050. In 1051, Earl Godwin refused the king's order to punish an affray at Canterbury, in which one of the men of Eustache Comte de Boulogne was killed. The dispute escalated, and 1 Sep 1051 Godwin and his two older sons made a show of force to the king near Tetbury. Earls Leofric and Siward rallied to the king's support, and battle was avoided. Godwin and his family were given five days' safe conduct to leave the country by the King's Council held on 8 Sep 1051[515]. He fled with his wife and sons Svein, Tostig and Gyrth to Bruges. Godwin returned with an army in Sep 1052, joined forces with his son Harold who returned from Ireland, and sailed into London. The family gathered popular support and was fully reinstated[516]. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle records that Earl Godwin died soon after, three days after suffering a stroke[517]. Florence of Worcester records his death and burial at Winchester[518].
     "m (1019) GYTHA, daughter of THORGILS Sprakling [THRUGILS Sprakaleg] & his wife --- (-St Omer after 1069). She is named by Florence of Worcester[519]. Her origin is deduced from Ulf Jarl of Denmark being described as the uncle of her son Svein by Florence of Worcester[520]. Morkinskinna names “Gytha, the daughter of Thorgils sprakaleggr and the sister of Jarl Úlfr” as the wife of “Godwin”[521]. Adam of Bremen records that "Wolf sororem" married "duci Gudvino", and was mother of "ducis Suein, Tostin et Haroldum [genuit parricidas]"[522], although this last reference is unexplained. She was living in Exeter when King William I attacked it in 1068. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle records that she took refuge at Flat Holme, an island in the Bristol Channel[523]. Orderic Vitalis records that, after the rebellion of [her grandsons] the sons of King Harold, “Gisa Goduini uxor, Heraldi genitrix” secretly took a great treasure (“ingentem gazam clanculum”) and crossed “in Galliam”[524]. Florence of Worcester records that "Gytha…comitissa…mater Haroldi regis Anglorum ac soror Suani regis Danorum" fled to Flanders, in a passage dealing with events in early 1068[525]. She became a nun at Saint-Omer."

     "Alleged descendants
     "In the 18th century, Danish historian Jacob Langebek proposed that Styrbjörn and Tyra were the parents of Thorkel Sprakalegg, who was father of Ulf the Earl and of Gytha Thorkelsdóttir, wife of Godwin, Earl of Wessex, and thus grandfather of kings Sweyn II of Denmark and Harold Godwinson of England.[11][12] The earliest known source which says anything about the father of Thorkell Sprakalegg was the chronicle of John of Worcester, who says that 'Spraclingus' was son of 'Urso', (Latin for bear) which would be Bjorn. Both Saxo Grammaticus and Gesta Antecessorum Comitis Gualdevi derive Thorkel from the mating of a bear with a noblewoman, Saxo relating that they produced a son named for his father (i.e. named Bjorn), who was in turn father of 'Thrugillus, called Sprageleg', while the Gesta tells a similar story but turns the Urso, father of 'Spratlingus' (sic) in John of Worcester's pedigree into the actual bear involved.[13] Langebek suggested that Saxo's tale of a 'Wild' Björn, father of Thorkel, was an allegorical reference to Styrbjörn.[11] Otto Brenner, in his accounting of the descendants of Gorm the Old, rejects Thorkill as son of Styrbjörn and Thyra.[14]"

     ; Per Med Lands:
     "There is no certain information concerning the ancestry of Wulfnoth, father of Godwin Earl of Wessex. The Vita Ædwardi mentions nothing about Earl Godwin's origins. Alfred Anscombe suggested in 1913 that Wulfnoth, and his supposed brother Æthelnoth Archbishop of Canterbury, were descended from Æthelred I King of Wessex[485]. He based this on a study of the transmission of estates in Sussex, especially Compton in Westbourne Hundred, through supposed members of the same family. Florence of Worcester records that Earl Godwin was the great-nephew of Eadric "Streona" Earl of Mercia, but this seems unlikely from a chronological point of view as discussed further below. At the other end of the scale, Earl Godwin is the son of a cowherd according to one 12th century source[486]. An obscure origin seems unlikely given Earl Godwin's swift rise to power during the reign of King Canute. However, it seems equally unlikely that King Harold II would not have publicised a noble descent, if he had one, to demonstrate his suitability to accede to the throne in early 1066. Given the importance of name roots in Anglo-Saxon England, it may also be significant, as Frank Barlow points out, that neither the root "Wulf-" in the name "Wulfnoth" nor any name resembling "Godwin" is found among any of the supposed descendants of King Æthelred I[487].
     "1. WULFNOTH "Child" (-after 1009). The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle records that "Beorhtric the brother of the ealdorman Eadric" denounced "Wulfnoth a nobleman of Sussex" to the king in [1008] for unspecified crimes, after which Wulfnoth fled the country only to return, take 20 ships from the king´s fleet, and ravage the south coast and burn the rest of the king´s navy, one manuscript naming him "quendam nobilem virum…Wlnothum (patrem Godwini ducis)"[488]. same person as…? WULFNOTH (-before 25 Jun 1014). Florence of Worcester names "Brihtricus, Ælfricus, Goda, Ægelwinus, Ægelwardus, Ægelmærus, pater Wlnothi, patris West-Saxonum ducis Godwini" as the brothers of "Edricum…Ægelrici filium…ducem", and within a few lines in the same paragraph repeats the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle´s report about "Brihtric" accusing "Suth-Saxonicum ministrum Wlnothum" of treachery[489]. This text, and the one quoted above from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, are contradictory, when read together, in suggesting that Wulfnoth, accused by Beorhtric, was the same person as Beorhtric´s nephew. Freeman argues cogently that Florence did not intend to identify Wulfnoth, the supposed nephew of Eadric, with Wulfnoth, the alleged traitor, arguing along similar lines to what has just been said[490]. He highlights that Florence does not make this connection in his two passages, although the one closely follows the other and it seems surprising that such a link would have been omitted if it had existed. In addition, from a chronological point of view, it is unlikely that Godwin was the grandson of the brother of Eadric "Streona", who died in 1017 and about whom there is no indication that he was very old at that time. The chronology suggests, rather, that Eadric "Streona" and Godwin´s father would have been contemporaries. Another interesting fact is that Ætheling Æthelstan, under his will dated [1014], made a bequest to "Godwine, Wulfnoth's son, the estate at Compton which his father possessed", listed second among the bequests to non-members of the royal family[491]. The wording of the bequest is consistent with the land in question having been confiscated, and such confiscation would have followed if Earl Godwin´s father had been the Wulfnoth Child who was accused of treachery. Freeman highlights that Domesday Book records the two places ini Sussex called Compton as having been held, respectively, by King Harold II (Earl Godwin´s son) and a tenant of Earl Godwin[492]. This strongly suggests that the beneficiary under Ætheling Æthelstan´s will was Earl Godwin, and that he was the son of Wulfnoth Child, the alleged traitor. In conclusion, it appears unlikely that Florence of Worcester was correct in stating that Godwin´s father was Eadric "Streona"´s nephew. Florence of Worcester names "Brihtricus, Ælfricus, Goda, Ægelwinus, Ægelwardus, Ægelmærus, pater Wlnothi, patris West-Saxonum ducis Godwini" as the brothers of "Edricum…Ægelrici filium…ducem"[493]. According to Freeman, Florence did not intend to identify this Wulfnoth with "Wulfnoth Child the South-Saxon"[494]. Kelly suggests that the name of the father "Æthelric" was a mistranscription for Æthelweard, whom he suggests was the same person as the chronicler, an alleged descendants of King Æthelred I[495]. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle records that "Beorhtric the brother of the ealdorman Eadric" denounced "Wulfnoth a nobleman of Sussex" to the king in [1008] for unspecified crimes, after which Wulfnoth fled the country only to return, take 20 ships from the king´s fleet, and ravage the south coast and burn the rest of the king´s navy, one manuscript naming him "quendam nobilem virum…Wlnothum (patrem Godwini ducis)"[496]. It was presumably some time during the course of his banishment and rebellion that Wulfnoth forfeited the land at Compton which was later restored to his son. His date of death is estimated from the will of Æthelstan, eldest son of King Æthelred II, under which Wulfnoth's son Godwin received his late father's property at Compton, Sussex.

; Per Genealogics:
     “Wulfnoth Cild was a South Saxon thegn who is regarded by historians as the probable father of Godwin, earl of Wessex, and thus grandfather of King Harold II Godwinson. It is known that Godwin's father was called Wulfnoth, and in the view of Frank Barlow, author of _The Godwins,_ the Godwin family's massive estates in Sussex are indisputable evidence that the Wulfnoth in question was the South Saxon thegn. Wulfnoth may have been the son of Aethelmaer Cild 'the Stout', thegn in Sussex, ealdorman in Devonshire, though this is not accepted by all historians.
     “In 1008 King Aethelred 'the Unready' ordered the construction of a fleet, and in the following year 300 ships assembled at Sandwich in Kent to meet a threatened Viking invasion. There Brihtric, brother of Eadric Streona, brought unknown charges against Wulfnoth before the king, unjustly according to the 12th century chronicler John of Worcester. Wulfnoth then fled with twenty ships and ravaged the south coast. Brihtric followed with eighty, but his fleet was driven ashore by a storm and burnt by Wulfnoth. After the loss of a third of the fleet the remaining ships were withdrawn to London, and the Vikings were able to invade Kent unopposed. Aethelred almost certainly confiscated Wulfnoth's property as a result.
     “Wulfnoth Cild died about 1015, possibly by June 1014.”.3

; Per Genealogy.EU (Wessex): “When King Edward the Confessor died in 1066, he made the fateful mistake of nominating two heirs to his throne; his distant kinsman William of Normandy and his unwitting brother-in-law Harold of Wessex. This blunder would ultimately be the Norman Conquest in 1066. The irony was that both men were not even the true heirs to the throne; instead the claim belonged to the young Edgar the Atheling who was bypassed due to his youth.

     “Aethelmaer Cild (the Stout) was ealdorman of the western provinces (or south-western England) from about 1005 to his death. He was possibly, but not certainly, the son of Aethelwerd 'the Historian'.
     “He was a patron of the homilist, Aelfric of Eynsham. In 987 Aethelmaer founded or re-founded Cerne Abbey, and in 1005 he founded Eynsham Abbey and made Aelfric its first abbot. Aelfric dedicated his _Lives of the Saints_ to Aethelmaer.
     “In a charter of 993 King Aethelred II laments his past misrule, which had resulted 'partly on account of the ignorance of my youth, and partly on account of the abhorrent greed of certain of these men who ought to administer to my interest'. Aethelmaer is acknowledged, along with the King's uncle, Ordulf of Tavistiock, as a loyal counsellor, and from the mid 990s he generally appears first among the ministers witnessing charters, followed by Ordulf, Wulfheah and Wulfgeat.
     “From 1006 the notorious Eadric Streona leapfrogged Aethelmaer, Ordulf, Wulfgeat and Wulfheah, to the head of the list of ministers. Wulfheah is known to have been blinded after Eadric murdered his father, ealdorman Aelfhelm of York, while Wulfgeat was deprived of all his lands. It may be significant that, if correctly identified with the 'Aethelmaer' in the will of Athelstan Aetheling, Aethelmaer's estate at Hambledon also appears to have fallen into royal hands. Ordulf is another who ceases to witness after 1006, and it is possible that the Aethelmaer who continues to attest charters after this date is another prominent thegn, Aethelmaer son of Aethelwold. Another Aethelmaer who occasionally attest charters at this time in a lower position is possibly one of the brothers of Eadric Streona.
     “By 1013 Aethelmaer had evidently regained any lost favour as he had assumed the ealdormanry of the Western Provinces where Aethelwerd 'the Historian' had been ealdorman. In this year he and his followers surrendered to the Danish invader Svend II 'Forkbeard', who was encamped at Bath. He died in 1015.
     “One of his sons Aethelnoth, became archbishop of Canterbury. Another, Aethelweard, was killed by Knud 'den Store', the future king of England, in 1017, while a son-in-law also called Aethelweard was exiled in 1020.
     “Aethelmaer has also been tentatively identified as the father of Wulfnoth Cild, thegn in Sussex, who was the father of Godwin, earl of Wessex, and grandfather of King Harold II. However, this theory of the ancestry of the Godwins is not accepted by all historians.”.3

     BIRTH     unknown, DEATH     897
     DEATH     897
Father Æthelred of Wessex
Mother Wulfthryth
     Æthelhelm or Æþelhelm (fl. 880s) was the elder of two known sons of Æthelred I,[1] King of Wessex from 865 to 871.
     Will of Alfred the Great, AD 873–888, granting land to Æthelhelm (11th-century copy, British Library Stowe MS 944, ff. 29v–33r)[2]
Æthelred's sons were too young to become king when their father died in 871, and the throne passed to their uncle, Alfred.[3] The only certain record of Æthelhelm records him as a beneficiary in Alfred's will in the mid 880s,[4][5] and he probably died at some time in the next decade.[6]
     Æthelhelm's mother was probably Wulfthryth.[7]
     Some historians have suggested identifying him with the Æthelhelm who served as Ealdorman of Wiltshire, the probable father of Ælfflæd,[8] who became Edward the Elder's second wife about 899. However, Barbara Yorke rejected this idea, arguing that it does not appear to have been the practice for æthelings (princes of the royal dynasty who were eligible to be king) to become ealdormen,[9] that a grant from Alfred to Ealdorman Æthelhelm makes no reference to kinship between them, and that the hostile reception to King Eadwig's marriage to Ælfgifu, his third cousin once removed, shows that a marriage between Edward and his first cousin once removed would have been forbidden as incestuous.[10]
     On Alfred's death in 899 Æthelhelm's younger brother Æthelwold contested the succession and died in battle.
     The historian Æthelweard (died c. 998) claimed descent from King Æthelred I and may therefore be a descendant of Æthelhelm. Some genealogists have suggested that the Godwins descended from Æthelred I through Æthelhelm, but almost all historians dismiss this idea. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86thelhelm

     "Aethelhelm was born about 859, the younger son of Aethelred I, king of England. Both he and his elder brother Aethelwold were too young to inherit the throne in 871 and it passed to their uncle King Alfred 'the Great' who granted them both lands. On Alfred's death in 899, Aethelwold contested the succession and was killed. However, Aethelhelm did not and seemed content to remain ealdorman (chief magistrate) of Wiltshire.
     "Two children have been attributed to Aethelhelm and his wife Aethelglyth of Mercia: Elfleda/Aelflaed and Aethelfrith of Wessex, both of whom would have progeny.
     "Aethelhelm's year of death is given as early as 897 and as late as 923. In The _Winchester Manuscript_ is recorded: 'Here in this year died Aethelhelm, ealdorman of Wiltshire, nine days before midsummer; and here passed away Heahstan, who was bishop of London.2'"

His loyal service to Edward III in France, Scotland and Ireland were to his benefit when charged with the many acts of criminal damage, mayhem and theft over the years, including the murderous assault, with his son Sir Robert, upon William Birkes, obtaining a royal pardon almost immediately.2

"Lucia de Humetis" donated revenue from land at Bradecroft, near Stamford to Southwick priory, Lincolnshire, for the souls of "domini mei Willelmi de Humetis et Ricardi filii mei", by charter dated to the late 12th century, witnessed by "Jordano de Humetis, Ricardo de Humetis, Baudewino Wac…Bartholomeo de Mortuo mari..:Willelmo de Sae, Henrico de Humetis fratre suo…"[986]. “Lucia uxor domini Willielmi de Humet constabularii domini regis” donated "terra mea de Bradecrofd" to Stanford Nunnery, with the consent of "domini mei Willielmi et Ricardi filii mei", by undated charter witnessed by "Jordano de Humet, Ricardo de Humet, Willielmo de Sae, Henrico fratre suo…"[987]. “Willelmus de Humeto domini regis constabularius” donated “totam terram meam in Lengronia” to Aulnay Sainte-Marie, with the consent of “filiorum meorum...Richardi de Humeto et Willelmi et Henrici et Jordani et Thomæ et Enguerranni”, for the souls of “meæ, patris et matris meæ et Luciæ uxoris meæ”, by charter dated 1190[988].

Guillaume II du Hommet was also known as William du Hommet Seigneur of Le Hommet, Normandy.7 Guillaume II du Hommet was also known as William du Hommet du Hommet et de la Luthumière, Connétable de Normandie Titles quoted by Douglas Richardson from Wanadoo.fr http://perso.wanadoo.fr/andr.leclere/html/dat702.htm#15.9 Guillaume II du Hommet was also known as William de Humez.3 He was Constable of Normandy.4

; Per Med Lands:
     "GUILLAUME [II] du Hommet, son of RICHARD [du Hommet] Connétable de Normandie & his [first wife --- du Hommet] (-after 1213). “Ricardus de Humet constabularius regis Angliæ” confirmed the foundation of Aulnay, including donations made by “Jordani de Saio et Luciæ uxoris eius” and by himself and “Agnetis uxoris meæ et filiorum meorum Willelmi, Enguerrani et Jordani”, by undated charter[780]. Robert of Torigny names "Guillermum, Enjorannum, Jordanum" as the sons and heirs of "Richardus de Humet constabularius regis" when recording his death[781]. ["Guillelmus de Humeto" [identified as Guillaume [II] du Hommet?] confirmed the donation to Bayeux of the church of Hérils made by "Roberti de Novo Burgo" by charter dated 1166, witnessed by "…Ricardo de Humeto…" [his father?][782].] Henry II King of England confirmed the possessions of the abbey of Aunay, including donations by "Richardi de Humetis et Agnetis uxoris sue, filie et heredis predicti Jordani" with the agreement of "Guillelmi de Humetis et Engerranni et Jordani filiorum suorum", by charter dated to [1181/89][783]. Connétable de Normandie. Henry II King of England confirmed "Willelmo de Humetis constabulariam meam" in his office previously held by "Ricardus de Humetis pater suus" by charter dated 1180[784]. “Willelmus de Humeto domini regis constabularius” donated “totam terram meam in Lengronia”, except land held from him by “Gervasia de Saeio sicut de primogenito et...Jordanus de Maisnillo et...Willelmus Cotele”, to Aulnay Sainte-Marie, with the consent of “filiorum meorum...Richardi de Humeto et Willelmi et Henrici et Jordani et Thomæ et Enguerranni”, for the souls of “meæ, patris et matris meæ et Luciæ uxoris meæ”, by charter dated 1190[785]. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1194/95], names "Willelmus de Homez" paying "xx s, i militem" in Hampshire[786]. "Willelmus de Humeto constabularius Normanniæ" donated half the church of Louvières to Bayeux, in the presence of "Jordano filio meo episcopo Lexoviensi", by charter dated to [1202/05], which names "Ricardi patris mei"[787]. “Willielmus de Humeth” donated property to Stanford Nunnery, confirmed by King John by charter dated 22 Nov [1199/1205][788]. Guillaume du Hommet donated property to the priory of Sainte-Marguerite de Vignats, in the presence of “Thomas du Hommet his son and of William du Hommet his grandson”, by charter dated to 1204 or before[789]. Guillaume du Hommet granted to Roger de Saint-Lo “the chapel of Sainte Catherine, in the parish of Le Desert” including rent which “Guillelmus de Humeto constabularius avus meus” had donated before he married his daughter to “Ricardo” (“antequam filiam suam maritasset Ricardo”), by charter dated 1213[790]. The document quoted above, in the list of Querimoniæ Normannorum dated 1247, records that “dictus Willelmus” [indicating Guillaume [II] du Hommet] died “MCCXI tercio, circa Ascensionem Domini”[791], a date which is inconsistent with the 1213 charter quoted above.
     "m LUCY, daughter of ---. "Lucia de Humetis" donated revenue from land at Bradecroft, near Stamford to Southwick priory, Lincolnshire, for the souls of "domini mei Willelmi de Humetis et Ricardi filii mei", by charter dated to the late 12th century, witnessed by "Jordano de Humetis, Ricardo de Humetis, Baudewino Wac…Bartholomeo de Mortuo mari..:Willelmo de Sae, Henrico de Humetis fratre suo…"[792]. Her family origin is indicated by the following document: a charter dated 1232, recording donations to the monks of Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte residing at the priory of la Luthumière, states that “Guillaume du Hommet concessionnaire de la Luthumière” had married “Luce, héritière des biens d’Adam de Bruys, son aïeul”[793]. “Lucia uxor domini Willielmi de Humet constabularii domini regis” donated "terra mea de Bradecrofd" to Stanford Nunnery, with the consent of "domini mei Willielmi et Ricardi filii mei", by undated charter witnessed by "Jordano de Humet, Ricardo de Humet, Willielmo de Sae, Henrico fratre suo…"[794]. “Willelmus de Humeto domini regis constabularius” donated “totam terram meam in Lengronia” to Aulnay Sainte-Marie, with the consent of “filiorum meorum...Richardi de Humeto et Willelmi et Henrici et Jordani et Thomæ et Enguerranni”, for the souls of “meæ, patris et matris meæ et Luciæ uxoris meæ”, by charter dated 1190[795]. It is unclear from the wording of this document whether Lucy was alive or deceased at the time. "
