Tonight’s “Who Do You Think you Are” was traced back to Edward 1st

Tonight’s Who Do You Think you Are featured Frank Gardner, BBC journalist. He managed to trace his family back to King Edward 1st of England via Jane Seymour, and from Edward back to William the Conqueror himself.

Do you know that John Leach Panter’s wife Sarah Downes has also been traced back to “Longshanks” and therefore back to William too? I’ll be working on getting this tree published along with more information on the Downes line shortly.
