Our Kinship With the Bush Presidents

Through our colonial ancestors, we are related to President George H. W. Bush, 41st President of the United States of America (1989-1993), and his son George W. Bush, 42nd President (2001-2009), through several lines of descent. The Bushes also have a number of genealogical descents from English and Scottish royalty and nobility. On my mother's side, we have traced a line of descent from James II, King of Scots, who died in 1460. My mother was also a descendant of Edward Southworth, who may have belonged to the Southworth family of Samlesbury. Following are comparisons of our colonial descents with those of the Bushes, along with comparisons of our proven and probable royal and noble descents.
