12 Generations with 68 people.

The Bourchier family starts with John Bourchier, a judge who acted for Robert de Vere (06 Earl Oxford).

John's eldest son Robert became Lord Chancellor of England

The male line continued through John's second son William who married Eleanor of Louvaine.

William and Eleanor's son William married Anne of Gloucester, daughter of Edward III's youngest son Thomas of Gloucester. He fought at Agincourt with Henry V.

William and Anne's son William married Isabel, daughter Richard of Conisburgh, son of Edward III's son Edmund of Langley, Duke of York.

William and Anne had five children including Henry (01 Earl Essex) and Thomas (Cardinal). Their daughter Eleanor married into the powerful Mowbray family.

Henry (01 Earl Essex) married Anne Woodville, sister of Elizabeth Woodville (wife of King Edward IV) further strengthening the ties between the Bourchier family and the House of York.
