Cousin henry (the world's classics)


So last week there was much surprise when family records revealed that David Cameron and TV comedian Al Murray are distant cousins.

The documents from the India Office Records, chronicling the lives of Europeans living there between 1698 and 1947, were published online at findmypast.co.uk and proved the surprising relationship.

One is in the autumn of a long career, with a complicated family life and a fondness for wearing pastels — but enough about Johnny Depp.

According to Nick Barratt, genealogist on the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?, the link between the actor and the Queen, 87, dates back to Edward III, who died in 1377.

While the Queen is Edward’s 17 times great-granddaughter, one branch of Depp’s ancestors hail from Yorkshire, and are relatives of the 3rd Earl of Northumberland, Henry Percy, who died in 1489 and who was Edward’s four-times great-grandson.

As one mounts ever-more desperate attempts to cling to youth and beauty, the other — blooming and unexpectedly popular — is enjoying a later-life renaissance.
