From Robert Miller it is 31 generations back to King Ethelred the Unready then Edgar the Peaceful to Edmund the Magnificent then Edward the Elder and finally to his father Alfred the Great.

Alfred the Great (Old English: Ælfrēd, "elf advice"; 849 – 26 October 899), was king of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex from 871 to 899. Alfred is noted for his defense of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of southern England against the Vikings, becoming the only English king to be given the epithet "the Great". Alfred is venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church and is regarded as a hero of the Christian Church in the Anglican Communion, with a feast day of 26 October, and may often be found depicted in stained glass in Church of England parish churches.
