Genealogy of the
Spencer Presidents and Princess Diana

The First Three Generations - An Overview

 
Sources: The Four Presidents genealogy is from Ancestors of American Presidents, Roberts, 1995. The Princess Diana and Winston Churchill genealogies are a "consensus" of genealogies seen on the web. However, the "final" links of Princess Di's line to Henry Spencer of Northants, d 1478 appears to be uncertain and not accepted by all.

Boyd, in AAP, had ample opportunity to show these four presidents as cousins to Princess Diana in a separate section of the book devoted to that topic and did not. Does this mean William of Rodborne is not a child of Henry? Two William Spencers confused??

See a comparison of the Henry and Isabella (Lincoln) Spencer genealogy per AAP to Spencer of the Great Migration.
