It is also believed that the mother of William de Longespée may have been Rosamund de Clifford rather than Aliz de Porhoet. It appears to be certain that he was in fact the son of King Henry II of England.spouse: >FitzPatrick, Ela Countess of Salisbury (1187 - 1261)
The House of Clifford, Chapter 5: Much controversy surrounds the identity of the Mother of William, for Rosamund was not the king's only mistress, though there are many who believe she was. Those who dispute Rosamund's claim base their case on the disparity in the ages of all concerned, but there is other evidence as well which can not be ignored. Unfortunately, the records date neither the birth of Rosamund nor that of her father, or her reputed sons. Documents also indicate an Ida, and an Ykenai as his mother. Died while on Crusade.

Christian IX (1818-1906), king of Denmark (1863-1906), a direct descendant of Christian III through the Glücksburg line. In 1852, with the consent of the reigning Frederick VII, a council of the great powers recognized Christian as heir apparent to the Danish throne. On the death of Frederick in 1863, Christian became king. The following year, after a war with Prussia and Austria, Denmark was forced to renounce its claims to Schleswig-Holstein by the Treaty of Vienna. In domestic affairs, Christian IX's reign was marked by a struggle between liberal and conservative elements for control of the Folketing, the lower house of the Danish Rigsdag, the legislature. Christian sided with the conservatives, but when the liberals gained control of the Folketing, he consented to the formation of a liberal ministry. By his wife, Louise, princess of Hesse-Cassel, he had six children. Of these, his eldest son succeeded him as Frederick VIII; his daughter Alexandra married the prince of Wales, later King Edward VII of Great Britain and Ireland; another daughter, Dagmar, married Grand Duke Alexander of Russia, later Czar Alexander III; and a younger son, George, became George I, king of Greece. Christian was sometimes called the Grandfather of Europe.spouse: >

Jedediah Dewey, son of John, b. May 15, 1777, at Suffield, Conn.; d. May 8, 1859, age 82, at Manchester, NY; moved from Connecticut, town of Suffield, to the county of Ontario, town of Manchester, NY, in the year of our Lord 1799. During the month of February he and his wife, whose maiden name was Ann Bement, came the whole distance with a yoke of oxen attached to a sled, driving two cows through the snow and bitter cold weather. When they arrived at Utica they found the road in a bad shape, only the trees having been removed from the path. The letter H was cut on the trees by the roadside which stood for highway, which was done for the guidance of travelers. After suffering great privations traveling through the snow and zero weather, driving a yoke of oxen, two cows and a calf, for one of their cows dropped a calf on their journey, they arrived safely at their destination, being thoroughly worn out by their journey. All they had in the world was their oxen, cows, calf, sled and household goods on the sled. They ran in debt for their land, which they paid for in after years. Mr. Dewey had been out the year before, made a small clearing, sowed some wheat and put up a log house. The place he settled on was what is now known as the place where Jedediah Dewey, Jr., lived and died. He brought the place into a good state of cultivation, and left it to his family. He died at the good old age of 82 and went to his reward in Heaven, having been a devout Baptist all his days. He was a man of great force of character. Whatever he thought was right and he undertook to do he persevered until he accomplished it, if it was among the possibilities. He was rigid in his religious observance. He was a Baptist of the olden style, as were all the Dewey family. He told his son Edmund, that is, Col. Dewey, when he became a Universalist, "Now, do not tell your children anything about it, for if you do you will ruin your whole family." He was a straight out Whig in politics, and made himself felt wherever he went. He was, as were many of our old pioneers, a grand old man; m. Nov. 28, 1798, at Suffield, Conn., Anna Bement, daughter of Edmond and Mary (Sheldon), b. Jan. 22, 1780, at Suffield; d. May 18, 1865, age 85, at Manchester, NY.
