The ancestry of William Mortensen Vaughan can, apparently, be traced back, through the lineage of British Dukes, Lords, Ladies, and Knights; Vikings; Scandinavian Kings; Norse and Greek gods; to the Biblical Adam.

According to Genesis, Chapter 5, God created man and called him "Adam." This chapter also traces Adam's lineage nine generations, down to Noah, as follows:

Adam's son,
Seth (one generation from Adam)
Enos (two generations from Adam)
Cainan (three generations from Adam)
Mahalaleel (four generations from Adam)
Jared (five generations from Adam)
Enoch (six generations from Adam) - the man allegedly taken by God instead of dying
Methusaleh (seven generations from Adam) - allegedly, the oldest man, who died at age 969
Lamech (eight generations from Adam)
Noah (nine generations from Adam) - allegedly, the man who built the Ark to save the animals from the Flood

According to Anno Mundi,
Noah (nine generations from Adam) is probably known in Greek and Roman mythology as Uranus; his son,
Ham (ten generations from Adam), as Kronus; and Ham's son,
Mizraim (eleven generations from Adam), as Zeus.

Greek mythology traces Zeus/Mizraim's lineage six generations, down to King Priam, the Last King of Troy:

King Dardanus (twelve generations from Adam) - the founding King of Dardania
King Erichthonius (thirteen generations) - King of Dardania
King Tros (fourteen generations from Adam) - King of Troy, for whom the City of Troy was named
King Ilus (fifteen generations from Adam) - the founding King of Ilium (often called "Troy") - not to be confused with his Uncle Ilus - Dardanus' first-born son, who died childless, before Erichthonius
King Laomedon (sixteen generations) King of Troy
King Priam (seventeen generations) - the Last King of Troy, since he ruled over the City of Troy when King Agamemnon sacked it, circa 1180 B.C.

Priam and Hecuba had a daughter, named
Tro-an (eighteen generations from Adam). She married
Munon (also eighteen generations from Adam), a.k.a. Memnon.
They had a son named
Thor (nineteen generations from Adam) - perhaps the mortal inspiration for the Norse god

In the Prose Edda, Snorri Sturlosson says that Thor, a.k.a. Tror, and
Sybil (also nineteen generations from Adam), had a son named
Loridi (twenty generations from Adam)

My pedigree, according to FamilySearch.org, which can be altered by anyone as easily as WikiPedia, has indicated that Loridi had the following descendants:

Einridi Loridesson (twenty-one generations from Adam)
Wingether Vingethorsson Einridisson (circa 135 B.C.) (twenty-two generations from Adam)
Vingener II Vingethorsson (circa 120 B.C.) (twenty-three generations from Adam)
