I will quote the Conspiracy here.
" Good stuff.  I do know a few Rebels members up north. A friend works for the dole office and could track him down now that JungleDoofus has given us the name of his town. Easy done. I've got some trucking interests in Mackay, still and I could go and film the big mouth right up close. There's pleasure to be had, after all, on my next business trip."

The descent of the Irish Celts from Adam
1. Adam
2. Seth
3. Enos
4. Cainan
5. Mahalaleel
6. Jared
7. Enoch
8. Methuselah
9. Lamech
10. Noah divided the world amongst his three sons, begotten of his wife Titea: viz., to Shem he gave Asia, within the Euphrates, to the Indian Ocean; to Ham he gave Syria, Arabia, and Africa; and to Japhet, the rest of Asia beyond the Euphrates, together with Europe to Gadea (or Cadiz).
11. Japhet was the eldest son of Noah. He had fifteen sons, amongst whom he divided Europe and the part of Asia which his father had allotted to him.
12. Magog: From whom descended the Parthians, Bactrians, Amazons, etc.; Parthalon, the first planter of Ireland, about three hundred years after the Flood; and also the rest of the colonies that planted there, viz., the Nemedians, who planted Ireland, Anno Mundi three thousand and forty-six, or three hundred and eighteen years after the birth of Abraham, and two thousand one hundred and fifty-three years before Christ. The Nemedians continued in Ireland for two hundred and seventeen years; within which time a colony of theirs went into the northern parts of Scotland, under the conduct of their leader Briottan Maol, from whom Britain takes its name, and not from "Brutus," as some persons believed. From Magog were also descended the Belgarian, Belgian, Firbolgian or Firvolgian colony that succeeded the Nemedians, Anno Mundi, three thousand two hundred and sixty-six, and who first erected Ireland into a Monarchy.

In Genesis 10, Magog is given as the second son of the patriarch Japheth, son of Noah.
Genesis 10:1-2 These are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth; sons were born to them after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. (RSV)
Apart from this text and its parallel in 1Chronicles 1:5, Magog is mentioned in only three other verses, all of which have prophetic significance, namely Ezekiel 38:2-3 and 39:6 (as those who dwell securely in the isles) and Revelation 20:8.
No sons of Magog are recorded in the Bible, although the Book of Jasher gives them as Elichanaf and Lubal (Ch. 7, 4).
The Milesian Ancestry or Genealogy records the son of Magog (who was twelfth in line from Adam), from whom the Milesians are descended as being:
Boath, one of the sons of Magog; to whom Scythia came as his lot, upon the division of the Earth by Noah amongst his sons, and by Japhet of his part thereof amongst his sons.
Phœniusa Farsaidh (or Fenius Farsa) was King of Scythia, at the time when Ninus ruled the Assyrian Empire; and, being a wise man and desirous to learn the languages that not long before confounded the builders of the Tower of Babel, employed able and learned men to go among the dispersed multitude to learn their several languages; who sometime after returning well skilled in what they went for, Phœniusa Farsaidh erected a school in the valley of Senaar, near the city of Æothena, in the forty-second year of the reign of Ninus; whereupon, having continued there with his younger son Niul for twenty years, he returned home to his kingdom, which, at his death, he left to the oldest son Nenuall; leaving to Niul no other patrimony than his learning and the benefit of the said school.
The record is from the Lineage of the Geoghegans as recorded on Abraham’s Legacy at http://www.ccg.org/_domain/abrahams-legacy.org/geoghegans.html. The stem of the Milesians from Adam to Milesius of Spain is also at Appendix A, with cross-links to the Library of Ireland. From that text it is obvious that the Milesians claim the Picts to be Scythians as well who followed them to Ireland but could not remain there. However, they refer in actual fact to the Scots. The Picts arrived earlier than the Scots in Alba or what became Scotland. The histories indicate that it was in fact before the Milesians entered Ireland, as we will later examine. The Scots went to Ireland from Gaul in the 5th century CE and went onward into Scotland with the aid of the Milesian Irish. It is these that are Magogites.
We may have to face the possibility that the lineage commencing with Boath, Fenius Farsa, and Niul was of the element of the sons of Magog from Scythia. The Milesians claim descent from Niul the youngest son of Fenius Farsa, who married the Egyptian princess Scota. The Milesian Genealogies place this in the time of Moses. That was from the Ashmosid 18th Dynasty of Egypt. From that time-frame Boath may not have been born earlier than the time of Abraham at 1995 BCE. However, the account sets the time of Fenius Farsa in his old age as being in the forty-second year of Ninus, who is identified as Nimrod. Fenius is recorded as going to the plain of Shinar and establishing a school to study the linguistics that resulted from the destruction and scattering of Babel. He is recorded as remaining there for twenty years and then returned to Scythia where he died and left the kingdom to his eldest son


Nimrod or Ninus constructed Nineveh, which itself is sometimes called Ninus.
Nimrod was a Cushite from Cush, son of Ham, and the land there was called Khus from that fact. Nineveh as capital of Assyria had to have come after Assyrian occupation and the dispersal of the later Cushites that remained there with Nimrod. Most had already gone into Asia and along the South Asian coast from India to Vietnam.
Greek mythology says Ninus was king of Assyria and the eponymous founder of the city of Nineveh. He was said to have been the son of Belos, or Bel, and to have conquered in seventeen years all of western Asia with the help of Ariaeus, king of Arabia. During the siege of Bactra he met Semiramis, the wife of one of his officers, Onnes; he then took her from Onnes.
(cf. Encyc. Britannica article ‘Ninus’ (http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9055893/Ninus)
Bel simply means Lord and is a way of attributing ancestor worship to Cush.
Semiramis was the legendary wife of Nimrod and the origin of the ‘Queen of Heaven’ religious mythology.
The explanation of the names can be seen from the ancient Babylonian religion and the ancestor worship that came from them.
The gods of Assyria actually came from the Babylonian system established by Nimrod and this is seen from the later Assyrian and Babylonian religious system.
Bel (or Lord) was carried throughout the Japhethite-language systems of both Gomer and Magog. The Great- or High-king of Britain before the Romans was Beli Mawr, meaning simply Great Lord. 
The line of the kings from the Trojan occupation of Britain records that the Magogites were in Britain when they arrived in the 10th century BCE and the Trojan British subjugated them. Both Geoffrey of Monmouth and Nennius are authorities on this history.

The same names appear in the religious pantheon of the Middle East.
The Assyrians had many gods and goddesses (many carried over from the times of Ancient Sumeria) which are listed below:
Form of sun god
God of medicine
Anshar (Assur, Ashur)
The national god of Assyria (god of farming); consort of Belit
God of the heavens; originally worshipped at the city of Erech before Ishtar[36].
Bel (Merodach)(Induru)(Belis by Greeks)(Indara by Hittites***)[39]
God of the visible world; Beltis was the wife of Bel; Zirat-banit his consort[37].
Ea (Hea)(Oannes by Greeks)
God of humanity and water; regarded to have come out of what we know as the Persian Gulf (half man, half fish) and imparted the Babylonians with the arts of civilized life[34]. Davkina was the consort of Hea.[36]
Associated with Samnuha
Ishtar (Nana, Ninmakh)
The goddess of love
Nabu (Nebo)
God of wisdom and writing; his consort was Tasmit[37].
Deified king who founded the Babylonian Empire (who was the great-grandson of Noah[14] (Note: Noah**, or Noah's lineage associated to Cush?))
Goddess of fish
God of war (similar to Nergal)
God of agriculture
Samnuha (shapsh)
the god's torch; also associated to

The Milesians record that they were persecuted and continually attacked under the sons of Gaodhal, Asruth and his son Sruth by the Egyptians for their support of the Israelites in the Exodus. They were reduced to a small number and ultimately were forced to leave for the island of Creta (Candia), but after a year and the death of Sruth they moved to Scythia and fought with the descendents of Nenuall. The Milesians then
ruled Scythia for a number of generations but ultimately were forced out to the Black Sea and into Iberia and on to the renamed Iberian Peninsula (now Spain). They moved ultimately into Ireland and to Lancashire in England (as the tribe of the Brigantes)
The Haplogroups of the Irish and Scots contain a significant element of Hamitic Haplogroups A, B and E as well as Phoenician Japhethite K2 found among the Welsh. The probability is that they were from Phoenician traders from the Formorian or later Feinean lines, who were Phoenicians from Carthage or Getulia. However, some may have come from later Roman influence
The Milesian understanding was that the Parthians were descended from Magog but it is more probable that the Parthians were composite, having Magogites and Tirasians combined with other elements. The Parthians and Scythians shared some common burial customs the further north from Persia they went. .
The Scythians or Scyths were among the most famous and feared of all ancient peoplesThe Gates of Alexander were a legendary barrier supposedly built by Alexander the Great in the Caucasus to keep the uncivilized barbarians of the north (typically associated with Gog and Magog) from invading the land to the south. … In the Alexander Romance, Alexander chases his enemies to a pass between two peaks in the Caucasus known as the "Breasts of the World". He decides to imprison the "unclean nations" of the north, which include Gog and Magog, behind a huge wall of steel or adamantine. With the aid of God, Alexander and his men closed the narrow pass, keeping the uncivilized Gog and Magog from pillaging the peaceful southern lands. The nature of the pass is never very clear; some sources say it is a pass between mountains, while others say it is a pass between the peaks and the Caspian Sea., there exists a funeral stele from the Roman camp at Chester, England, which depicts a Sarmatian warrior holding aloft their distinctive dragon battle standard. The first commander of the Sarmatians in Britain was Lucius Artorius [Arthur] Castus who led his troops to Gaul in 184 CE to put down a rebellion. This has resonance with the legendary King Arthur, the war leader who was said to have conducted military campaigns in Europe and to have saved Britain from the Saxons in the late-5th and early-6th centuries CE. Places associated with King Arthur are in fact found all over Britain, from Edinburgh’s ‘King Arthur’s Seat’ to an ancient hill fort near Kelso in the Scottish Borders; from Caerleon in Wales to Cadbury Castle (a proposed site for Camelot) in Somerset, England; and from Glastonbury (perhaps the mythical Avalon), also in Somerset, to Tintagel Castle, the supposed birthplace of Arthur, in Cornwall. It is suggested that the Sarmatians turned the name Artorius/Arthur into a title, much like Caesar (which later became Kaiser and Tsar).
Up until the 10th century, the term Scotia applied to the island of Ireland (or Eriu/Erin) rather than Scotland, which was then known as Alba or Alban. And at that time there were four kingdoms in Alba:
·         Picts in basically the whole of the country north of the Forth estuary;
·         Scots of Dalriada, now Argyll;
·         Britons of Strathclyde; and
Angles of Bernicia, from the Forth in Scotland down to the Humber river in England.
The Khazars were converted to Judaism ca. 740 CE. They were pushed into the Pale of Settlement by the Mongols ca. 1215. The Sorbians and many Eastern Europeans in the Pale as well as 53% of the Ashkenazi Levites and many other Jews, are R1a Khazars. Yiddish is a Sorbian language with German lexicography.
The YDNA of the Mongols is, however, Cushite C3, and the Chinese are Haplogroup O. They are not Magogites, hence these early writers were wrong. The Siberians to the north were R1b and R1a and some Q and it is these that were kept out by the wall.
Thus many Magogite Khazars are in Israel today.
13. Baoth, one of the sons of Magog; to whom Scythia came as his lot, upon the division of the Earth by Noah amongst his sons, and by Japhet of his part thereof amongst his sons.
14. Phoeniusa Farsaidh (or Fenius Farsa) was King of Scythia, at the time that Ninus ruled the Assyrian Empire; and, being a wise man and desirous to learn the languages that not long before confounded the builders of the Tower of Babel, employed able and learned men to go among the dispersed multitude to learn their several languages; who sometime after returning well skilled in what they went for, Phoeniusa Farsaidh erected a school in the valley of Senaar, near the city of Æothena, in the forty-second year of the reign of Ninus; whereupon, having continued there with his younger son Niul for twenty years, he returned home to his kingdom, which, at his death, he left to his eldest son Nenuall: leaving to Niul no other patrimony than his learning and the benefit of the said school.
15. Niul, after his father returned to Scythia, continued some time at Æothena, teaching the languages and other laudable sciences, until upon report of his great learning he was invited into Egypt by Pharaoh, the King; who gave him the land of Campus Cyrunt, near the Red Sea to inhabit, and his daughter Scota in marriage: from whom their posterity are ever since called Scots; but, according to some annalists, the name "Scots" is derived from the word Scythia.
It was this Niul that employed Gaodhal [Gael], son of Ethor, a learned and skilful man, to compose or rather refine and adorn the language, called Bearla Tobbai, which was common to all Niul's posterity, and afterwards called Gaodhilg (or Gaelic), from the said Gaodhal who composed or refined it; and for his sake also Niul called his own eldest son "Gaodhal." [The following is a translation of an extract from the derivation of this proper name, as given in Halliday's Vol. of Keating's Irish History, page 230:
"Antiquaries assert that the name of Gaodhal is from the compound word formed of 'gaoith' and 'dil,' which means a lover of learning; for, 'gaoith' is the same as wisdom or learning, and 'dil' is the same as loving or fond."]
16. Gaodhal (or Gathelus), the son of Niul, was the ancestor of the Clan-na-Gael, that is, "the children or descendants of Gaodhal. In his youth this Gaodhal was stung in the neck by a serpent, and was immediately brought to Moses, who, laying his rod upon the wounded place, instantly cured him: whence followed the word "Glas" to be added to his name, as Gaodhal Glas (glas: Irish, green; Lat. glaucus; Gr. glaukos), on account of the green scar which the word signifies and which during his life remained on his neck after the wound was healed. And Gaodhal obtained a further blessing, namely--that no venemous beast can live any time where his posterity should inhabit; which is verified in Creta or Candia, Gothia or Getulia, Ireland, etc. The Irish chroniclers affirm that from this time Gaodhal and his posterity did paint the figures of Beasts, Birds, etc., on their banners and shields,[7] to distinguish their tribes and septs, in imitation of the Israelites; and that a "Thunderbolt" was the cognizance in their chief standard for many generations after this Gaodhal.
17. Asruth, after his father's death, continued in Egypt, and governed his colony in peace during his life.
18. Sruth, soon after his father's death, was (see page 31) set upon by the Egyptians, on account of their former animosities towards their predecessors for having taken part with the Israelites against them; which animosities until then lay raked up in the embers, and now broke out in a flame to that degree, that after many battles and conflicts, wherein most of his colony lost their lives, Sruth was forced with the few remaining to depart the country; and, after many traverses at sea, arrived at the Island of Creta (now called Candia), where he paid his last tribute to nature.
19. Heber Scut (scut: Irish, a Scot), after his father's death and a year's stay in Creta, departed thence, leaving some of his people to inhabit the Island, where some of their posterity likely still remain; "because the Island breeds no venemous serpent ever since." He and his people soon after arrived in Scythia; where his cousins, the posterity of Nenuall (eldest son of Fenius Farsa, above mentioned), refusing to allot a place of habitation for him and his colony, they fought many battles wherein Heber (with the assistance of some of the natives who were ill-affected towards their king), being always victor, he at length forced the sovereignty from the other, and settled himself and his colony in Scythia, who continued there for four generations. (Hence the epithet Scut, "a Scot" or "a Scythian," was applied to this Heber, who is accordingly called Heber Scot.) Heber Scot was afterwards slain in battle by Noemus the former king's son.
20. Beouman; 21. Ogaman; and 22. Tait, were each kings of Scythia, but in constant war with the natives; so that after Tait's death his son,
23. Agnon and his followers betook themselves to sea, wandering and coasting upon the Caspian Sea for several (some say seven) years in which time he died.
24. Lamhfionn and his fleet remained at sea for some time after his father's death, resting and refreshing themselves upon such islands as they met with. It was then that Cachear, their magician or Druid, foretold that there would be no end of their peregrinations and travel until they should arrive at the Western Island of Europe, now called Ireland, which was the place destined for their future and lasting abode and settlement; and that not they but their posterity after three hundred years should arrive there. After many traverses of fortune at sea, this little fleet with their leader arrived at last and landed at Gothia or Getulia --more recently called Lybia, where Carthage was afterwards built; and, soon after, Lamhfionn died there.
25. Heber Glunfionn was born in Getulia, where he died. His posterity continued there to the eighth generation; and were kings or chief rulers there for one hundred and fifty years--some say three hundred years.
26. Agnan Fionn; 27. Febric Glas; 28. Nenuall; 29. Nuadhad; 30. Alladh; 31. Arcadh; and 32. Deag: of these nothing remarkable is mentioned, but that they lived and died kings in Gothia or Getulia.
33. Brath was born in Gothia. Remembering the Druid's prediction, and his people having considerably multiplied during their abode in Getulia, he departed thence with a numerous fleet to seek out the country destined for their final settlement, by the prophecy of Cachear, the Druid above mentioned; and, after some time, he landed upon the coast of Spain, and by strong hand settled himself and his colony in Galicia, in the north of that country.
34. Breoghan (or Brigus) was king of Galicia, Andalusia, Murcia, Castile, and Portugal--all which he conquered. He built Breoghan's Tower or Brigantia in Galicia, and the city of Brigansa or Braganza in Portugal--called after him; and the kingdom of Castile was then also called after him Brigia. It is considered that "Castile" itself was so called from the figure of a castle which Brigus bore for his Arms on his banner. Brigus sent a colony into Britain, who settled in that territory now known as the counties of York, Lancaster, Durham, Westmoreland, and Cumberland, and, after him, were called Brigantes; whose posterity gave formidable opposition to the Romans, at the time of the Roman invasion of Britain.
35. Bilé was king of those countries after his father's death; and his son Galamh [galav] or Milesius succeeded him. This Bilé had a brother named Ithe.
36. Milesius, in his youth and during his father's life-time, went into Scythia, where he was kindly received by the king of that country, who gave him his daughter in marriage, and appointed him General of his forces. In this capacity Milesius defeated the king's enemies, gained much fame, and the love of all the king's subjects. His growing greatness and popularity excited against him the jealousy of the king; who, fearing the worst, resolved on privately despatching Milesius out of the way, for, openly, he dare not attempt it. Admonished of the king's intentions in his regard, Milesius slew him; and thereupon quitted Scythia and retired into Egypt with a fleet of sixty sail. Pharaoh Nectonibus, then king of Egypt, being informed of his arrival and of his great valour, wisdom, and conduct in arms, made him General of all his forces against the king of Ethiopia then invading his country. Here as in Scythia, Milesius was victorious; he forced the enemy to submit to the conqueror's own terms of peace. By these exploits Milesius found great favour with Pharaoh, who gave him, being then a widower his daughter Scota in marriage; and kept him eight years afterwards in Egypt.
During the sojourn of Milesius in Egypt, he employed the most ingenious and able persons among his people to be instructed in the several trades, arts, and sciences used in Egypt; in order to have them taught to the rest of his people on his return to Spain.
[The original name of Milesius of Spain was, as already mentioned, "Galamh" (gall: Irish, a stranger; amh, a negative affix), which means, no stranger: meaning that he was no stranger in Egypt, where he was called "Milethea Spaine," which was afterwards contracted to "Milé Spaine" (meaning the Spanish Hero), and finally to "Milesius" (mileadh: Irish, a hero; Lat. miles, a soldier).]
At length Milesius took leave of his father-in-law, and steered towards Spain; where he arrived to the great joy and comfort of his people, who were much harasssed by the rebellion of the natives and by the intrusion of other foreign nations that forced in after his father's death, and during his own long absence from Spain. With these and those he often met; and, in fifty-four battles, victoriously fought, he routed, destroyed, and totally extirpated them out of the country, which he settled in peace and quietness.
In his reign a great dearth and famine occurred in Spain, of twenty-six years' continuance, occasioned, as well by reason of the former troubles which hindered the people from cultivating and manuring the ground, as for want of rain to moisten the earth; but Milesius superstitiously believed the famine to have fallen upon him and his people as a judgment and punishment from their gods, for their negligence in seeking out the country destined for their final abode, so long before foretold by Cachear their Druid or magician, as already mentioned--the time limited by the prophecy for the accomplishment thereof being now nearly, if not fully, expired. To expiate his fault and to comply with the will of his gods, Milesius, with the general approbation of his people, sent his uncle Ithe, with his son Lughaidh [Luy], and one hundred and fifty stout men to bring them an account of those western islands; who, accordingly, arriving at the island since then called Ireland, and landing in that part of it now called Munster, left his son with fifty of his men to guard the ship, and with the rest travelled about the island. Informed, among other things, that the three sons of Cearmad, called Mac-Cuill, MacCeacht, and MacGreine, did then and for thirty years before rule and govern the island, each for one year, in his turn; and that the country was called after the names of their three queens--Eire, Fodhla, and Banbha, respectively: one year called "Eire," the next "Fodhla," and the next "Banbha," as their husbands reigned in their regular turns; by which names the island is ever since indifferently called, but most commonly "Eire,"[8] because that MacCuill, the husband of Eire, ruled and governed the country in his turn the year that the Clan-na-Milé (or the sons of Milesius) arrived in and conquered Ireland. And being further informed that the three brothers were then at their palace at Aileach Neid,[9] in the north part of the country, engaged in the settlement of some disputes concerning their family jewels, Ithe directed his course thither; sending orders to his son to sail about with his ship and the rest of his men, and meet him there.
When Ithe arrived where the (Danan) brothers were, he was honourably received and entertained by them; and, finding him to be a man of great wisdom and knowledge, they referred their disputes to him for decision. That decision having met their entire satisfaction, Ithe exhorted them to mutual love, peace, and forbearance; adding much in praise of their delightful, pleasant, and fruitful country; and then took his leave, to return to his ship, and go back to Spain.
No sooner was he gone than the brothers began to reflect on the high commendations which Ithe gave of the Island; and, suspecting his design of bringing others to invade it, resolved to prevent them, and therefore pursued him with a strong party, overtook him, fought and routed his men and wounded himself to death (before his son or the rest of his men left on ship-board could come to his rescue) at a place called, from that fight and his name, Magh Ithe or "The plain of Ithe" (an extensive plain in the barony of Raphoe, county Donegal); whence his son, having found him in that condition, brought his dead and mangled body back into Spain, and there exposed it to public view, thereby to excite his friends and relations to avenge his murder.
And here I think it not amiss to notify what the Irish chroniclers, observe upon this matter, viz.--that all the invaders and planters of Ireland, namely, Partholan, Neimhedh, the Firbolgs, Tuatha-de-Danans, and Clan-na-Milé, where originally Scythians, of the line of Japhet, who had the language called Bearla-Tobbai or Gaoidhilg [Gaelic] common amongst them all; and consequently not to be wondered at, that Ithe and the Tuatha-de-Danans understood one another without an Interpreter--both speaking the same language, though perhaps with some difference in the accent.
The exposing of the dead body of Ithe had the desired effect; for, thereupon, Milesius made great preparations in order to invade Ireland--as well to avenge his uncle's death, as also in obedience to the will of his gods, signified by the prophecy of Cachear, aforesaid. But, before he could effect that object, he died, leaving the care and charge of that expedition upon his eight legitimate sons by his two wives before mentioned.
Milesius was a very valiant champion, a great warrior, and fortunate and prosperous in all his undertakings: witness his name of "Milesius," given him from the many battles (some say a thousand, which the word "Milé" signifies in Irish as well as in Latin) which he victoriously fought and won, as well in Spain, as in all the other countries and kingdoms he traversed in his younger days.
The eight brothers were neither forgetful nor negligent in the execution of their father's command; but, soon after his death, with a numerous fleet well manned and equipped, set forth from Breoghan's Tower or Brigantia (now Corunna) in Galicia, in Spain, and sailed prosperously to the coasts of Ireland or Inis-Fail [10] where they met many difficulties and various chances before they could land: occasioned by the diabolical arts, sorceries, and enchantments used by the Tuatha-de-Danans, to obstruct their landing; for, by their magic art, they enchanted the island so as to appear to the Milesians or Clan-na-Milé in the form of a Hog, and no way to come at it (whence the island, among the many other names it had before, was called Muc-Inis or "The Hog Island"); and withal raised so great a storm, that the Milesian fleet was thereby totally dispersed and many of them cast away, wherein five of the eight brothers, sons of Milesius, lost their lives. That part of the fleet commanded by Heber, Heremon, and Amergin (the three surviving brothers), and Heber Donn, son of Ir (one of the brothers lost in the storm), overcame all opposition, landed safe, fought and routed the three Tuatha-de Danan Kings at Slieve-Mis, and thence pursued and overtook them at Tailten, where another bloody battle was fought; wherein the three (Tuatha-de-Danan) Kings and their Queens were slain, and their army utterly routed and destroyed: so that they could never after give any opposition to the Clan-na-Milé in their new conquest; who, having thus sufficiently avenged the death of their great uncle Ithe, gained the possession of the country foretold them by Cachear, some ages past, as already mentioned.
Heber and Heremon, the chief leading men remaining of the eight brothers, sons of Milesius aforesaid, divided the kingdom between them (allotting a proportion of land to their brother Amergin, who was their Arch-priest, Druid, or magician; and to their nephew Heber Donn, and to the rest of their chief commanders), and became jointly the first of one hundred and eighty-three [11] Kings or sole Monarchs of the Gaelic, Milesian, or Scottish Race, that ruled and governed Ireland, successively, for two thousand eight hundred and eighty-five years from the first year of their reign, Anno Mundi three thousand five hundred, to their submission to the Crown of England in the person of King Henry the Second; who, being also of the Milesian Race by Maude, his mother, was lineally descended from Fergus Mor MacEarca, first King of Scotland, who was descended from the said Heremon--so that the succession may be truly said to continue in the Milesian Blood from before Christ one thousand six hundred and ninety-nine years down to the present time.
Heber and Heremon reigned jointly one year only, when, upon a difference between their ambitious wives, they quarrelled and fought a battle at Ardcath or Geshill (Geashill, near Tullamore in the King's County), where Heber was slain by Heremon; and, soon after, Amergin, who claimed an equal share in the government, was, in another battle fought between them, likewise slain by Heremon. Thus, Heremon became sole Monarch, and made a new division of the land amongst his comrades and friends, viz.: the south part, now called Munster, he gave to his brother Heber's four sons, Er, Orba, Feron, and Fergna; the north part, now Ulster, he gave to Ir's only son Heber Donn; the east part or Coigeadh Galian, now called Leinster, he gave to Criomthann-sciath-bheil, one of his commanders; and the west part, now called Connaught, Heremon gave to Un-Mac-Oigge, another of his commanders; allotting a part of Munster to Lughaidh (the son of Ithe, the first Milesian discoverer of Ireland), amongst his brother Heber's sons.
From these three brothers, Heber, Ir, and Heremon (Amergin dying without issue), are descended all the Milesian Irish of Ireland and Scotland, viz.: from Heber, the eldest brother, the provincial Kings of Munster (of whom thirty-eight were sole Monarchs of Ireland), and most of the nobility and gentry of Munster, and many noble families in Scotland, are descended.
From Ir, the second brother, all the provincial Kings of Ulster (of whom twenty-six were sole Monarchs of Ireland), and all the ancient nobility and gentry of Ulster, and many noble families in Leinster, Munster, and Connaught, derive their pedigrees; and, in Scotland, the Clan-na-Rory--the descendants of an eminent man, named Ruadhri or Roderick, who was Monarch of Ireland for seventy years (viz., from Before Christ 288 to 218).
From Heremon, the youngest of the three brothers, were descended one hundred and fourteen sole Monarchs of Ireland: the provincial Kings and Hermonian nobility and gentry of Leinster, Connaught, Meath, Orgiall, Tirowen, Tirconnell, and Clan-na-boy; the Kings of Dalriada; all the Kings of Scotland from Fergus, Mor MacEarca down to the Stuarts; and the Kings and Queens of England from Henry the Second down to the present time.
The issue of Ithe is not accounted among the Milesian Irish or Clan-na-Milé as not being descended from Milesius, but from his uncle Ithe; of whose posterity there were also some Monarchs of Ireland (see Roll of the Irish Monarchs, infra), and many provincial or half provincial Kings of Munster: that country upon its first division, being allocated to the sons of Heber and to Lughaidh, son of Ithe. whose posterity continued there accordingly.
This invasion, conquest, or plantation of Ireland by the Milesian or Scottish Nation took place in the Year of the World three thousand five hundred, or the next year after Solomon began the foundation of the Temple of Jerusalem, and one thousand six hundred and ninety-nine years before the Nativity of our Saviour Jesus Christ; which, according to the Irish computation of Time, occurred Anno Mundi five thousand one hundred and ninety-nine: therein agreeing with the Septuagint, Roman Martyrologies, Eusebius, Orosius, and other ancient authors; which computation the ancient Irish chroniclers exactly observed in their Books of the Reigns of the Monarchs of Ireland, and other Antiquities of that Kingdom; out of which the Roll of the Monarchs of Ireland, from the beginning of the Milesian Monarchy to their submission to King Henry the Second of England, a Prince of their own Blood, is exactly collected.
[As the

Milesian invasion of Ireland took place the next year after the laying of the foundation of the Temple of Jerusalem by Solomon, King of Israel, we may infer that Solomon was contemporary with Milesius of Spain; and that the Pharaoh King of Egypt, who (1 Kings iii. 1,) gave his daughter in marriage to Solomon, was the Pharaoh who conferred on Milesius of Spain the hand of another daughter Scota.]

Milesius of Spain bore three Lions in his shield and standard, for the following reasons; namely, that, in his travels in his younger days into foreign countries, passing through Africa, he, by his cunning and valour, killed in one morning three Lions; and that, in memory of so noble and valiant an exploit, he always after bore three Lions on his shield, which his two surviving sons Heber and Heremon, and his grandson Heber Donn, son of Ir, after their conquest of Ireland, divided amongst them, as well as they did the country: each of them bearing a Lion in his shield and banner, but of different colours; which the Chiefs of their posterity continue to this day: some with additions and differences; others plain and entire as they had it from their ancestors.

Notable Kin - The Line from King John of Magna Charta, via Montforts, to Orsinis of Rome, Medicis of Florence, the Famese of Parma, Renaissance Popes Leo X and Paul III, Woodvilles of England, Sir Ferdinando Gorges, and Various Colonial Immigrants

Gary Boyd Roberts

Published Date : October - November 1992

Some descents are more than surprising. Somewhat like great paintings, or architecture, or music, they inspire awe and wonder. Such reaction may be suggested by the line treated herein. Eleanor Plantagenet, a daughter of the English King John who was forced to sign the Magna Charta in 1215, married Simon de Montfort, 2nd Earl of Leicester, who led the barons against Henry III, his brother-in-law, and summoned in 1265 “the first modern Parliament” of churchmen, barons, four knights from each shire and two citizens from each borough. Guy de Montfort, a younger son of Eleanor and Simon, murdered a cousin in revenge for his father’s death, was excommunicated by Pope Gregory X but later pardoned by Pope Martin IV, served that pope and Charles I, King of Naples, as a soldier, and was created Count of Nola. Guy’s daughter, Anastasia de Montfort, a great-granddaughter of King John, married Romano Orsini, senator of Rome in 1326, and brought her father’s title to this great Roman family. Due to intermarriage between various branches of the Orsini, Anastasia and Romano are ancestors of most Orsinis notable during the Italian Renaissance, Popes Innocent XIII (1655-1724, Pope 1721-24, Michelangelo Conti, whose mother was an Orsini) and Benedict XIII (1649-1730, Pope 1724-30, Pietro Francesco Orsini, Duke of Gravina), Colonnas, dukes of Paliano, Barberinis, princes of Palestrina, and undoubtedly many other major Italian noble families.
Most remarkably, however, Roberto Orsini, Count of Nola (d. ca. 1350), son of Anastasia and Romano, was a great-great-great-grandfather of both Clarice Orsini, wife of Lorenzo de’ Medici, known as “Lorenzo the Magnificent,” virtual ruler of Florence, 1469-92, and of Elizabeth Woodville, queen of Edward IV of England. The mother of Queen Elizabeth Woodville was the French-born Jacquette of Luxembourg, widow of John Plantagenet, Duke of Bedford (son of the English King Henry IV) when she married the “parvenu” Lancastrian, later Yorkist peer, Richard Woodville, 1st Earl Rivers (whose origin, and descent from the Beauchamps of Lillesdon, Somerset and Ryme, Dorset. is authoritatively covered by Charles M. Hansen and Neil D. Thompson in The Coat of Arms, new ser. 9, #157 (Spring 1992):178-87). Jacquette’s mother, Margherita del Balzo of Andria, was in turn the daughter of Sueva Orsini, a granddaughter of Roberto and great-granddaughter of Anastasia and Romano. Clarice’s son, Giovanni de’ Medici, Pope Leo X, patron of Raphael and other Renaissance artists, a worldly Papal State defender against whose supposed excesses Martin Luther posted his 95 theses at Wittenberg and began the Protestant Reformation - this pope was thus a fifth cousin of the Yorkist princes (Edward V and Richard, Duke of York) murdered in the Tower of London ca. 1483, and a fifth cousin once removed of the English King Henry VIII, whom Leo created “Defender of the Faith.”
Medici descendants of Clarice Orsini and Lorenzo the Magnificent ruled Florence, and Tuscany until 1737. This family also produced two queens (and regents) of France - the famed Catherine de’ Medici, a great-niece of Pope Leo X, wife of Henry II and mother of French Kings Francis II, Charles IX and Henry III; and Marie de’ Medici, granddaughter of Cosimo I, Grand Duke of Tuscany (a second cousin of Catherine and great-nephew of Leo X) and wife of the first Bourbon French king, Henry IV. Many later Catholic European sovereigns are descended from these two queens, and many later Protestant sovereigns, plus many English peers and gentry, are descended from sisters of Henry VIII (and granddaughters of Queen Elizabeth Woodville). But “Bad King John” and Orsinis of Rome are ancestors not only of the English Tudors, Florentine Medicis, later European sovereigns, and English and Italian noblemen. Another major ruling family of Renaissance Italy and over 15 colonial immigrants who left American descendants share this line as well.
Among second cousins of Jacquette of Luxembourg (Duchess of Bedford and Countess Rivers) was Giovanella Orsini, wife of Giacomo IV Caetani, Lord of Sermoneta and grandmother of Giovanella Caetani, wife in turn of Pier Luigi Farnese and mother of both Alessandro Farnese, Pope Paul III, and Giulia Farnese, mistress of Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia). Pope Paul III was the founder, through an illegitimate son, of the ducal house of Parma, which reigned there from 1545 to 1731; its eventual heiress, Elisabetta Farnese, married Philip V, King of Spain, and was also an ancestress of numerous later Catholic sovereigns. Pope Paul III also approved the decree establishing the order of the Jesuits, introduced the Inquisition into Italy, convened the Council of [149] Trent (and thus initiated the Counter-Reformation), was a major patron of Michelangelo, and excommunicated Henry VIII of England, his fifth cousin, after Henry’s divorce from Catherine of Aragon, break with Rome and declaration of himself as “Supreme Head” of the Church of England. Thus Pope Paul III, known for his nepotism, is a contributing figure to Anglicanism, the Renaissance, the Counter-Reformation, and the Jesuits.
I shall conclude this year-long NEXUS tribute to Italy, Italian-Americans, and the “discovery of America” in 1492 by Genoese native Christopher Columbus, by noting the Woodville, and thus Orsini, descents of over 15 immigrants to the American colonies. These descents are, I believe, the closest genealogical ties between Renaissance Italy and pre-nineteenth century America. Among major sponsors of American colonies, Sir Ferdinando Gorges, Lord Proprietor of Maine and generally known as its founder even though he never immigrated, was a seventh-generation descendant, via Gorges and Poyntz, of Anthony Woodville, 2nd Earl Rivers, brother of the queen. Before her marriage to Edward IV, Elizabeth Woodville married Sir John Grey, son of the heiress of the barons Ferrers of Groby, and left a son, Thomas Grey, 1st Marquess of Dorset (d. 1501). Dorset’s immigrant descendants to New England included Elizabeth Bosvile, wife of Roger Harlakenden and Harvard treasurer Herbert Pelham (via Bosvile and Greville); and John Jones of Boston (via Jones, Bluet, and Blount). Among the American progeny of these last, Elizabeth Pelham, a great-granddaughter of Herbert and Elizabeth, married colonial architect Peter Harrison, designer of King’s Chapel, Boston (1749-54), Christ Church, Cambridge (1761), the Redwood Library in Newport, R.I. (1748-50), and the Synagogue, also in Newport (1762-63); and Isabella Pratt Welles, a great-granddaughter of John Jones, married Horatio Hollis Hunnewell, noted Boston banker, railroad executive, horticulturalist and benefactor of Wellesley, Massachusetts, named for his wife’s family. Among the great-grandchildren, in turn, of H. H. and Isabella Hunnewell is former Massachusetts governor Francis Williams Sargent [III].
Jacquette, wife of John Strange, 8th Baron Strange of Knokyn,. was said by the great antiquarian Sir William Dugdale to be a sister of Queen Elizabeth Woodville and the fourth daughter of their parents, a claim generally accepted since. Joan Strange, Jacquette’s daughter, married George Stanley, generally known as Baron Strange, eldest son of Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby. New England immigrants descended from Joan and George include Joshua Henshaw of Dorchester (very probably, although his line may go through one illegitimacy, noted below) and John Nelson of Boston, noted fur trader and proponent of English rule in Canada. A nephew of Nova Scotia governor Sir Thomas Temple, Nelson had a sister Margaret who is alleged to have married Rev. Thomas Teackle of Accomack County, Virginia. Among Henshaw’s descendants was a great-great grandson, David Henshaw, Jr., Massachusetts Democratic politician and Secretary of the Navy, 1843-44. Nelson himself was noted in a previous “Notable Kin” column (NEXUS 5[1988]:208-10) as an ancestor of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Finally among immigrants to New England of Woodville and Orsini descent I list below Robert Traill of Portsmouth, N. H., brother-in-law of “signer” Matthew Whipple, Jr. and matrilineal great-grandfather of James Russell Lowell. Trail’s likely descent - a full monograph would be welcome - from James V, King of Scots, a great-grandson of Queen Elizabeth Woodville of England, is covered in NEXUS 6(1989):203, 205-6, and summarized below.
In addition to the above immigrants to New England, Roman Orsinis and English Woodvilles were also ancestors of various immigrants to the South. Those I wish to consider include Mrs. Ursula St. Leger Horsmanden, whose granddaughter married the first William Byrd of Westover and left a sizable number of notable descendants associated with Virginia’s “plantation aristocracy”; Ursula’s sister, Mrs. Katherine St. Lager Colepepper (Culpeper), whose daughter Frances married three colonial governors, including Sir William Berkeley; St. Leger Codd of both Virginia and Maryland, a nephew of Ursula and Katherine; and Governor Edward Digges of Virginia, a second cousin of the St. Leger sisters and also an ancestor of numerous “planter-derived” notables, including Roman Catholic prelate John Carroll and the wife of “signer” Charles Carroll of Carrollton. The mutual great-grandmother of the St. Leger sisters and Digges was herself the great-granddaughter of another Woodville sister, Catherine, wife of Humphrey Stafford, 2nd Duke of Buckingham. Another Southern immigrant descendant of the Duchess of Buckingham was Mrs. Alicia Arnold Ross of Maryland, wife of John Ross, cousin (via Lowes) of the Calverts, and great-grandmother of Francis Scott Key, author of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and of his sister, Anne Phoebe Charlton Key, wife of Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney. John Alston of South Carolina, a first cousin once removed of John Nelson and also descended from Jacquette Woodville, Lady Strange, was a great-grandfather of both “signer” Thomas Lynch, Jr., of that state and painter and poet Washington Allston, a great-great granddaughter, Rebecca Motte Alston, married U.S. senator Robert Young Hayne, the orator who debated Daniel Webster in 1830. William Bladen, colonial publisher and attorney-general of Maryland, also descended from Lady Strange - via Fairfaxes and Sheffields - was an ancestor of Taskers, Lowndeses, Stodderts, Ewells, Gantts, Bowies, Dulanys and Ogles of Maryland. James Kinloch of South Carolina, son of a Scottish baronet and also descended from an illegitimate son of James V of Scots, was an ancestor of Kinlochs, Hugers, and Middletons among the “rice planters” of Charleston, and of Nelsons of Virginia. Ancestors of much smaller groups of noted Southerners include Thomas Wingfield of Virginia, a descendant of Queen Elizabeth Woodville via Greys, Willoughbys, Paulets and Cromwells; and another Scottish immigrant (also the son of a baronet and descendant of an illegitimate son of James V) - George Home of Virginia, the surveyor who trained George Washington.
[150] Thus we outline below a descent that links the Magna Charta and baronial opposition to English kings, the Italian Renaissance (Florence, Parma, the papacy, the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, and the Jesuits), late Plantagenet and Tudor kings, Anglicanism, the founding of Maine, and colonists to both New England and the South, whose own progeny includes “signers” (or their wives), statesmen, and one U.S. president (FDR). A bit of awe and wonder may not be amiss. In the following outline the descents from King John to the Cromwells, Farnese and Medici, including the two queens of France, follows the format used in the column on J. E. Oglethorpe and the kings of Italy (NEXUS 9:62-65). Dates are in years only (note that a few marriages were contracted when both parties were children), and generation numbers are from King John. The lines from colonial immigrants to Queen Elizabeth Woodville or her siblings follow the usual format of this column - the name and colony of the immigrant, together with a brief description of his career, if notable, followed by parents, one set of grandparents, great-grandparents, etc., back to the Woodville; as always, semi-colons separate generations.

Appearing as a guest host on American daytime show The View, the Duchess claimed Bashir duped Diana into giving the intimate answers she did, in exactly the same way as he got pop star Michael Jackson talking in his recent programme.
During Bashir's interview with Diana, the Princess famously revealed "there were three people in this marriage" - a reference to her husband Prince Charles's relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles.
The Duchess said: "She never would have said all the things she said if it hadn't been for the way he tricked her. He lulled her into a comfort zone by being this wonderful magnanimous man and by saying 'I'm a family man as well' and got her to talk that way. And, of course, 'off the record' doesn't exist."
Bashir came under further fire on the show, which is co-hosted by TV journalist Meredith Vieira, for being "sneaky" by not showing the whole footage of his interview with Jackson.
The singer later released his own video footage of the interview which showed Bashir lulling him into a false sense of security by telling him how impressed he was with the love he has for his children.
The Duchess said: "I don't understand how Martin Bashir can sit there and say, 'I'm a family man, you're a family man. This is great', - and then Jackson says 'you tricked me'. I think I've got a tarnished view, coming from Britain where they are the most ruthless tabloid journalists in the world."
After the controversial interview was broadcast, Jackson, 44, said Bashir had told him that he was "the man who turned Diana's life around" and promised to put together an "honest and fair portrayal of my life".
But the "devastated" star described the final version of Living With Michael Jackson, which was watched by more than 14 million people in the UK alone, as a " salacious ratings chaser, designed to celebrate Martin Bashir" and a "travesty of the truth".
While some regarded Diana's interview with Bashir as amazingly honest, others saw it as a well-rehearsed and cynical piece of theatre, with the Princess laying bare almost every aspect of her life with his help.
The discovery that her husband was having an affair was " devastating", bringing on "rampant" bulimia and attempts to injure herself. Diana also called royal officials "the enemy" and questioned the Prince's suitability to be king.
Rumours about Bashir's role in Diana's life circulated at the time of the interview. Disgraced entertainer Michael Barrymore's wife Cheryl gave an insight into his relationship with Diana the year after their interview when she described Bashir as "Diana's unofficial envoy". He arranged for the Princess to meet the former game show host after he checked into a drug rehabilitation clinic.
Barrymore was also interviewed on TV by Bashir in 2001, as he tried to rescue his career after party guest Stuart Lubbock died during a drug-fuelled evening at the star's Essex home.
