You have several members of George Washington's ancestry on your site. Would you want to take this back to Edward III? If so, there is an article by a renown British Genealogist named Anthony Adolph . He wrote this about the time of Prince George's birth. It was mainly to show that although Kate Middleton was not Royal, she had Royal Blood.. He succeeds well in this but fails to give us all the dates and spouses. He says that Will and Kate are 14th cousins, once removed. He proves this with several lines of descent. Their common ancestor were Sir Thomas Fairfax and Agnes Gascoigne. Agnes was the daughter of Sir William Gascoigne and his wife, Margaret Percy. Margaret was the 5 times granddaughter of Edward III. Sixteen generations down one line and we come to Kate. Fifteen generations down a different line we find Will. Margaret's other daughter Elizabeth Gascoigne Talboys was George Washington's 7 times grandmother. That makes Margaret his 8 times grandmother. By subtracting the smaller from the larger, we get 8th cousins, 8 times removed. While your first cousins are your uncle's kids, for genealogy we count the number of "G"s in the list of grandparents.Share Grandparents (one G), first cousins. Share Great, Great, Great Grandparents (4 Gs), 4th cousins. If one person has 4 Gs to the common ancestor and the other only has 2, they are 2nd cousins, twice removed.

While all the names in the direct lines are there, the dates and spouses are not every time. I spent quite a bit in Wikipedia and other sources running down these names and dates. It takes time but I feel it was worth it.
I hope you found this helpful. Thank you for your time.
