bullet  General Notes:

"In 1779, Mr. George Carpenter of Redbourn in Hertfordshire (writes
Sir Anthony Wagner, ex-Garter King of Arms, in his English Geneology)
had the plumber down from London to repair the roof of his house. With
the plumber came his daughter, and both remained at Redbourn for some
time. Mary Elizabeth Walsh, the daughter, was then eighteen years of
age and Mr. Carpenter upwards of 60, yet notwithstanding the disparity
of their ages and positions, he married her. Their daughter (Mary
Elizabeth Louisa Carpenter) married the 11th Earl of Strathmore
(Thomas Lyon-Bowes), the Queen Mother's (Elizabeth II) great
great-grandfather. The Prince of Wales is thus eighth in descent from
that plumber, John Walsh" This is from the book, "Charles: A Biography
by Anthony Holden, 1989, Toronto, McClelland and Stewart. Contributed
by Gail Walsh --
