THE YONGE FAMILY – Royal Links
Many native born people in England have ancestors who come from a Royal line, although it can often be difficult to trace
the link. This picture shows Edmung Lagley Duke of York, one of the many sons of Edwad111, who is our link with the Royal Family.
This is sole because
in medieval times it was the practice, unlike on the Continent, for English kings to marry off their children to the great noble families. The aim was to secure the barons loyalty, although this did not always work.
