    • Genetic Evidence of John Churchill's Paternity

    The current revision says nothing about the subject's career after the First World War. I was particularly interested to learn what he was doing during the Second World War but really all of it is interesting. Can anyone find a source for his life post-1918? 79.68.163.30 (talk) 16:48, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

    According to several sources about Winston or Jennie Jerome, Jack's father was not in fact Randolph Churchill, but was instead John Strange, an Irish Colonel. At the very least, the implication ought to be mentioned. Jennie Churchill was militantly unfaithful and her lovers included the Prince of Wales, Alfred Kinsky, etc. Of course Randolph was no saint either... but Jack's parentage is questionable. V. Joe (talk) 16:49, 2 December 2008 (UTC) Don't know why this is crossed out, as I've just read a history in which this is explicitly stated. At the very least the denial (unusually forceful) on the main page needs a source. --Michael Johnson (talk) 00:14, 28 September 2009 (UTC) 1. Dreadnought by Robert K. Massie states in its chapter 40 that the biological father is John Strange Jocelyn, Earl of Roden 82.224.28.96 (talk)

    Did he really use the double barreled surname? My understanding was that his father removed the hyphen for himself and his descendants. john k (talk) 17:56, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

    Please can people stop moving this article all over the place? The bots do not always catch up with the double, triple, quadruple redirects that get created, and dab pages, templates, etc need to be updated. DuncanHill (talk) 14:24, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

    A genetic comparison made on ancestry.com and 23&Me between ancestors of the principals of interest, suggests that the paternity of John Churchill remains indeterminate. DNA was made available from six individuals, over three generations, descended from two of John Churchill's offspring. Five of John's six descendants have high-confidence autosomal genetic links with three direct descendants of Winston Churchill, two from the Sandys line and one from the line of Randolph Churchill, his son. These links confirm a common descent through Jennie Jerome, but do not confirm a common descent through Randolph Churchill, her spouse, the son of the 7th Duke of Marlborough. There are four principal candidates for John Churchill's paternity. No cousins of Edgar Vincent were found to have submitted DNA to any of the top five commercial ancestral DNA companies (he had no descendants). Three descendants of Evelyn Boscawen (all 2nd cousins once removed at their closest) were found to have no geneti...
