BOWES-LYON family tree posted
I have just spent the past three days working on the family tree of
Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the Queen Mother, who died in March at age 101.
I started on this project because I remembered that she had two
nieces, cousins of Queen Elizabeth II, who had been locked up in
mental hospitals for more than 50 years.
I want to thank the many people who helped me in this search.
What I found most surprising is that while there are many websites
dealing with the Royal Family tree, almost none of them make any
mention of this branch of the British Royal Family. It seems that they
are almost persona non grata.
From most websites, one would imagine that the Queen Mother was an
only child. In reality, she had six brothers and three sisters.
Two of her nieces, both sons of her brother John Herbert BOWES-LYON
(1886-1930), have been confined in mental hospitals almost since their
birth. The youngest, Katherine BOWES-LYON, who was born 4 July 1926,
is apparently still alive or at least her death had not been
announced.
In addition, Queen Elizabeth had an uncle, John Charles Francis
WINDSOR (1905-1919) who was an epileptic who had to be restrained
until he died.
The BOWES-LYON family tried to marry well. I was surprised to discover
that one of them had married the great-granddaughter of John Jacob
Astor, one of the richest men in America. Imagine the chagrin of the
Astor Family when they realized that their daughter had married into
the wrong branch of the British Royal Family. Rachel Pauline
SPENDER-CLAY, who was the granddaughter of William Waldorf Astor,
after whom the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City is named,
married David BOWES-LYON, the uncle of Queen Elizabeth II of England.
Helen Schermerhorn ASTOR married James Roosevelt, the half-brother of
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

PS. I have no relationship with any of these people, except that I
live near Astoria, Queens, which was named after John Jacob Astor.
