In Reply to: Wolstone CHILDE - Ancestor of Queen Elizabeth II? by Donald Erlenkotter of 468

Documentation of Queen Elizabeth II as a descendant of Wolstone CHILDE is given by Gary Boyd Roberts in his article "A Genealogical Tribute to the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, Part One," New England Ancestors, Vol. 3, No. 4 (Fall 2002), pp. 34-36.

Elizabeth CHILDE, the daughter of Rev. Benjamin CHILDE, was baptized 4 September 1629 at Cottesbach, Leicestershire, England. She married ca. 1647 Rev. James BRADSHAW, who was baptized 7 November 1613 at Bolton, Lancashire, England and was rector of Wigan, Macclesfield, Houghton Chapel, and Bradshaw Chapel.

Rev. Benjamin CHILDE was born 1 September 1592 at Westminster, London, the son of Wolstone CHILDE and Ellen EMPSON. He was a 1611/12 and 1615 graduate of Emmanuel College, Cambridge and was rector of Cottesbach, Leicestershire. He married there 4 September 1628 Sarah SHENTON.

Roberts identifies a number of notable descendants of Wolstone CHILD in addition to Her Majesty, including diamond magnate Charles Lewis Tiffany and his son Louis Comfort Tiffany, the glassmaker and designer of Tiffany lamps; publisher Harry Chandler of the Los Angeles Times; painter Frederick Edwin Church; telegraph inventor Samuel F. B. Morse; Yale president Alfred Whitney Griswold; Harvard president James Bryant Conant; University of Chicago president Robert Maynard Hutchins; philosopher John Dewey; and U.S. Secretary of State William Learned Marcy.
