William Eastwood is a descendant of King Henry and King John, (King John signed the Magna Carta ).
His mother is Ann Borden Doolittle. He is related to General Jimmy Doolittle, who turned the tide against the Japanese in World War II, and Clint Eastwood.
His appearance resembles the Doolittle’s more so than the Eastwood’s.
William Eastwood is the 11th generation from Abraham Doolittle who was born in England in 1620. Abraham emigrated to Boston in 1641.
The planters (Doolittle family) that came from England were descended from nobility and educated. Abraham Doolittle was a Puritan and disagreed with the government and the Church of England.
The Doolittle family was well to do and were seeking religious freedom. They were afraid the government would confiscate their possessions.
Samuel (Chief Executive Officer of New Haven Colony in the early 1600s) who was one of Abraham’s sons, was married to Mary Cornwall, (who’s father, Reverend Peck, was an original proprietor of Hartford, the capital of Connecticut, [the Constitution State]).
William is from the line of Samuel.
Mary’s ancestry goes back 15 generations to her direct ancestor, John Plantagenet, King of England. King John signed the Magna Carta and his father was Henry Plantagenet, King Henry ll of England.
All descendants of Samuel are descendants of two of the Kings of England.
William Eastwood is a descendant of two kings of England, one of which signed the Magna Carta, which some consider the greatest document in the world.
The Magna Carta is a human rights document, the first of its kind in world history.
