Obscurity is not synonymous with lack of power

An interesting fact in family history is mentioned by the editor M Walery of Our Celebrities, who publishes a portrait of Major-General Sir Owen Burne in his last number. He says :  

“Some few years ago the Morning Post cited the family of Sir Owen Burne as a remarkable instance of illustrious descent in families which have no specially prominent position in the world.”

Foster’s Royal Lineage of our Noble and Gentle Families gives his descent on his father’s side from the ancient families of de Leiburne and Bodicote, and on his mother’s side from French and English kings : thirty-fourth from Edward III, and, again, through his four sons separately : thus being connected with some of the noblest families in England and France.”
