] Did anyone know that Jane Austen was related (did i spell that right?) to Edward the Third? My sister was reading a thing on the Internet and found out about it.
Melanie B. -- Linden is right: there are hundreds of thousands of people (at least) who could trace back descent to Edward III, and probably millions more who do have him as an ancestor (though they couldn't prove it from surviving documents). I have a link to the place your sister probably visited, on page http://www.pemberley.com/janeinfo/brabletn.html
