    http://community.dur.ac.uk/a.r.millard/genealogy/EdwardIIIDescent.php Mark Humphrys (amongst others) asks whether we can estimate the number of descendants of King Edward III. A slightly different but related question is the probability that a present-day English person descends from Edward III (1312-1377). This is my attempt to calculate this probability. First we can consider the number of ancestors that we have. Wachter (1978), in considering the number of ancestors at the time of the Norman conquest for a child born in England in 1947, suggested that in 1587 (13 generations at 30 years) the child would have 7938 ancestors, a figure that allows for some cousin-cousin marriages, based on the observation that Wachter himself had 63 rather than 64 ancestors six generations back. Smith (2001) has examined 626 birth-briefs at the Society of Genealogists, and reviewed other literature on cousin-cousin marriages, showing that although the rate is difficult to estimate, the estimates which can be considered reliable range from 0.28% to 0.86% of marriages. Over many generations, this would mean that on average the number of ancestors increased not twofold per generation, but between 1.9828 and 1.9944 per generation, leading to slightly lower estimates than Wachter's, of 7322 to 7899 ancestors at the 13th generation (and 14518 to 15753 at the 14th generation). Marriages between more distant cousins, also have an impact, but these are ignored here, following the original argument of Wachter. Wachter (1978) asserts, and Smith (2001) provides some limited evidence, that second cousin marriages are much less common than first cousin marriages, and third or more distant cousin marriages occur no more frequently than would be expected from the number of third, etc., cousins in the population. Third, etc., cousin marriages are therefore very rare. Sturges and Haggett (1987) estimated the average growth rate of the English population c.1350-c.1994 was 1.14 times per generation, implying 2.28 surviving children per couple. With an average 2.28 children per couple then on average each individual has 28 third-cousins, and less than 9000 tenth-cousins in a population of millions. Thus marriages between very distant cousins are more common, but not as common as first cousin marriages until one reaches about 12th cousins, which is more distant than is possible in the 13 generations considered here. Second, etc., cousin marriages also have less impact on the number of ancestors than first cousin marriages. The child of first cousins has 24 rather than 32 distinct 3x-great grandparents, but the child of second cousins has 28, and the child of third cousins has 30. It is therefore safe to follow Wachter in ignoring marriages between cousins other than first cousins, as including them is a lot of calculation which will only reduce the average number of ancestors in 1587 by a fraction of a percent, and this is probably within the margin of error derived from the uncertainty in the rate of first-cousin marriages. In line with Wachter we can assume "wide diffusion of ancestors throughout society and the country by 1600." Taking those numbers as a starting point, then if we knew the number of descendants of Edward III born in England in the 30-year generation centred on 1587, we could estimate the probability of at least one of them being one of those ancestors. Leo van de Pas in his website "Genealogics" gives as comprehensive a list of the descendants of Edward III as can probably be compiled at present. In the fifth generation he lists 321 descendants, of whom I count about 245 as 'English' (though distinguishing English from Welsh and Irish nobles in this list is difficult). This gives a rate of increase of 3.00 times in each generation within 'English' descendants or 3.17 per generation for all descendants. This is high in comparison to Sturges and Haggett's (1987) estimate of 2.28 surviving children per couple on average over...

    Yes. The penalty is levied against us, and the next Conservative Supreme Court Justice will probably justify it by calling it a tax.

    CLIMATE CHANGE: FORMER OBAMA OFFICIAL CLAIMS THE GOVERNMENT COOKED THE BOOKS Robert Jonathan With regard to its climate change advocacy, the Obama administration published misleading data for public consumption. That is the apparent conclusion of Dr. Steven E. Koonin, who served as undersecretary for science in the U.S. Department of Energy from 2009 to 2011. Koonin told the Wall Street Journal in a brief interview (see clip embedded below) that “What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analyses, was, I’d would say, misleading, sometimes just wrong, but much more often misleading.”

    I HAD A WEIRD DREAM LAST NIGHT. I DREAMED I HAD TO GO TO THE BATHROOM REALLY BAD AND I WAS FOLLOWING MR ANIMAL AROUND IN OUR HOUSE TO EACH OF THE BATHROOMS. THE POOR MAN WAS TRYING TO GO (#2 I SUSPECT BECAUSE HE KEPT SITTING DOWN ) BUT AS SOON AS HE WOULD GET COMFORTABLE, I WOULD SHOW UP AT THE DOOR BEGGING HIM TO LET ME IN. HE WOULD TELL ME TO GO TO ANOTHER BATHROOM BUT I WOULD TELL HIM I COULDN'T MAKE IT. ANYWAY, AS SOON AS I GOT IN AND SAT DOWN, NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN SO I WOULD GET UP AND GO FIND MR ANIMAL TO TALK BUT BY THE TIME I GOT THERE (I LIKE TO TALK TO HIM WHEN HE'S ON THE TOILET BECAUSE HE CAN'T GET AWAY:D), I FELT LIKE I HAD TO PEE AGAIN. I WOKE UP WHEN HE FINALLY GOT MAD AT ME. DREAM MAD. IRL, HE WOULD'VE LOST PATIENCE WITH ME LONG BEFORE HE DID IN MY DREAM. GUESS WHAT? WHEN I WOKE UP, I HAD TO GO TO THE BATHROOM REALLY BAD. PLUS, I WAS COLD. OUR UPSTAIRS AC WASN'T WORKING RIGHT SO I CALLED OUR GUY AND HE CAME BY AND FIXED IT. APPARENTLY, IT WAS JUST A BREAKER. WE HAD SOME BAD STORMS AND THE POWER WAS BLINKING ON AND OFF AND IT MUST'VE TRIPPED IT.
