Question:  I have heard that my ancestor Edmund Hawes (d. 1693) of Yarmouth, Massachusetts has a royal line?  Can you tell me if this is true or not?


Answer:  Your theory is true on his royal ancestry according to the book by Gary Boyd Roberts, The Royal Descents of 600 Immigrants to the American Colonies of the United States (Baltimore, 2004).  On pages 422-3 it outlines his descent from King William I of Scotland (d. 1214).

Does the book cover the line from Salem's John Putnam back to French king Louis IV, as reported in Eben Putnam's book on the Putnam family?
Thank you.
