Henry Cavendish – 4th cousin, 8 times removed and full of hot air?



Henry Cavendish, discoverer of Hydrogen, was reported to be my 4th cousin, 8 times removed, through our MRCA, Temperance Bray (1580-1619).  This follows my Lee – Stevens line though to my last documented member on that line, my 9th great grandfather, John Stevens (1603-1670).  Then the We’re Related report gets questionable. It states John’s mother was born in 1583 when HER MOTHER was 3 YEARS OLD!   So, I will have to discount the validity of the report!  Am I the first person that looked at the dates and said, “I really do not buy this!”?

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
