* The Ascendants and Descendants of Richard Lougher 1467*

Updated April 1, 2010


I am Jeanne Evans née Lougher and am a descendant of Richard Lougher, "Richard Llwchwr" the founder of the Lougher family, who adopted the surname "Lougher" c 1500.

Richard himself is a descendant of the medieval kings of Glamorgan, who descended from a male-line of native local governors in Roman Britain, the Dukes of Gwent, who were the successors of the pre-Roman British kings, that is, the Old British Royal House of Iron Age Britain, the Celtic Brehins [High-Kings]; a descendance traceable in the male-line 66 generations over 2000 years of recorded history and unknown years of unrecorded history, perhaps another 1000 years. This dynasty traditionally descends from Brutus, called "first" King of Britain by Geoffrey of Monmouth, who placed Brutus in history at [circa] 1100BC.

The full Lougher pedigree from Cassivellaunus [Caswallawn], the British King who fought Caesar's invasion of Britain, 54BC, d48BC to present day can been seen at http://www.angelfire.com/ego/et_deo/LougherPedigree.wps.htm and was compiled by David Hughes, RdavidH218@AOL.com. It is authentic; its authenticity may be validated by the sources quoted therein.

My data includes the descendants of Richard Lougher [Llwchwr] to modern day, i.e. 16 generations.
