I am descended from Christopher Youngs (born in Southwold, England in 1565), and am researching him backwards. I found this on another web site:
"Col. John Youngs, (Christopher's grandson) of the second generation in America, placed the Tudor Trevor coat (of arms) upon his will in 1697. There is a pedigree of many generations from Tudor Trevor to Youngs families..Col. John Youngs is proof that his line of descent is through Tudor Trevor and the Yonges of Brynyorken." ….Thus, although the specific line of descent is not proven, the Youngs were of this bloodline, which included Henry Tudor, a Welshman, leading a Welsh army, who defeated and slew Richard III, on Bosworth Field, and became King Henry VII."
Does anyone have anything on this "pedigree of many generations from Tudor Trevor to Youngs families"? Or any suggestions for sources?From what I can gather, his father was also Christopher, born about 1520. His father was Thomas born about 1480. King Henry Vll was born in 1485, so how can there be a connection?
