Completing the Set (2) – the female line cousins

In October, we published an updated version of a Bulletin article, showing that all of Henry VIII’s “wives” were descended from Edward I.

Thanks to Ann for her comment on the above article, that Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour and Katherine Howard share the same mtDNA, therefore Edward VI and Elizabeth I should do. Having investigated this, it is true of Anne Boleyn and Jane Seymour but Katherine Howard’s Cheyne descent passes once through the male line, as her surname suggests.
