Hi, Mike;
W have been unable to connect the Calkin(s) name line to royalty - or even nobility. Some people have written about Sir John Calkyn in the time of King John, but have no verifiable proof that there is any connection to Hugh.
So it becomes a matter of making a maternal connection. In my case, I have a Lucy Willey xgreatgrandmother for whom I have found some nobility ancestry. (I determined that Queen Elizabeth and I are 16th cousins - and I did not even get an invitation.) I am sure you can understand that I do not work much on lines other than my own. In your case, we have ancestry quite a ways back for Damaris Strong, but I do not see any nobility connection.
Best regards, Ken Calkins
