PRINCE GEORGE FAMILY TREE: DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE ANCESTRY
Documented here is the genealogy of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge that reveals their common ancestry, and how they are related. The Fairfax family are the common denominator, and if Sir Thomas Fairfax is their last direct common ancestor then that makes them 14th cousins once removed. This genealogy also reveals their mutual descendency from King Edward III of England confirming that Prince George has royal ancestry on both sides of his family.

What do we know about Sir Thomas Fairfax? When his father, Sir Thomas Fairfax died in 1505 he inherited the Gilling Estate including Gilling Castle in Gilling East, North Yorkshire, England. In 1513 he served King Henry VIII on his expedition to Artois. When the city of Tournai, which is now in Belgium surrendered to the King, he received his knighthood. The ownership of the Gilling Estate was initiated through the first of two inquisitions in 1489 based upon the marriage of Margaret de Etton and Thomas Fairfax of Walton in 1349. Sir Thomas Fairfax (1475-1520) was the eldest of nine children.Please email me, Richard Steel, if you have any comments or questions: sign guestbook
