- Genealogy experts trace power elite to Northants ancestor
HENRY SPENCER has a lot to answer for or a lot to be proud of, depending on how you look at it. From his lofty position in the afterlife, Spencer can look down on some of history's most famous people and know that he is the daddy to them all.
US President George Bush is descended from the 15th century Northamptonshire resident, as well as legendary wartime UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and the entire British royal family.
Research by US genealogy website MyFamily.com revealed the curious gene=power link as part of its publicity drive ahead of launching a UK equivalent, to be called ancestry.co.uk.
There is thought to be no truth in speculation linking Bush to a 3rd century BC ancestor of Sadam Hussein.
