Hoge/Hume breakthrough

  of 515

While working on the William and Barbara(Hume)Hoge line, I discovered the following: The Book "History of The Hume Family" by John Robert Hume states that a Thomas Hume was the Progenitor of the Hume's of Ninewells. It lists several of his ancestors. Carring on the line through the Books "Americans of Royal Descent" by Browning and "The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland" by Prince Michael of Albany, we can take the tree back several generations. I have ordered a book "The House of Douglas" which , hopefully, will close the loop between Barbara's father Sir James Hume and Thomas Hume, of which I believe, are five missing generations. Going back to Beli Mawr (The Great) Sovereign Lord of the Celt whose rein was from 132-72 BC I would be the 65th generation. Another branch goes back to King Priam of Troy (no dates) I would be the 82nd. generation. Several Kings and two Emperor's (Claudius and Gratianus) are listed as our grandfathers. We are descended from Prince Maldred, brother to King Duncan I and King Macbeth. ED
