Dr. Byrom’s Ahnentafel


If you do not know what an ahnentafel is, please click here.


John Byrom is a supposed ancestor of mine. If I am descended from him, I would be a distant cousin of HM Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom through the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne; and HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco through the Dukes of Hamilton.


Question marks indicate a missing name.

I use the % symbol instead of 1 to make it easier to calculate the ahnentafel numbers should I ever prove a link with my family tree.

Some of these people held many titles, I have not attempted to list them all.
