Re: Rhys Ap Thomas/Katherine Howard, NOT!
Thanks.As an academician, (I teach in a university) I find sloppy research (Jacobus) irritating.Plus there is so much misinformation (and even disinformation) on the web that assertions about "academic quality" need to be rebutted when necessary.
Granted, in the end it may turn out that Edmund is not descended from the Welsh Rhys family, but Jacobus' article is barely more than idle speculation, IMO.
His allegations are no better supported that the ones made by Elmer Rice. Until and unless some further documentation can be found, however, we won't know the real story.
I keep hoping that some records will come to light in Wales or England to help clear things up.
