Anne (or Agnes) Gascoigne (circa 1474, at Gawthorpe, Yorkshire, England – 1504, at Walton, Yorkshire, England ), was the daughter of Sir William Gascoigne (son of another Sir William Gascoigne) and Lady Margaret Percy.[1] Through her mother, she is descended from Edward III. Anne Gascoigne and her husband, Sir Thomas Fairfax, are common ancestors of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.[2][3][4][5]

Having found a few problems which I could not resolve I published a cautionary article, 'The Fairfax ancestry of the Duchess of Cambridge – a correction' in The Genealogists' Magazine, vol. 30, no. 10, June 2012, pp. 407–411. Thereafter I kept searching and in July 2013 I found a pedigree compiled by the Suffolk clergyman-genealogist Matthias Candler (1604–1663), preserved in Harleian Manuscript 6071 (p. 502/f. 249v) in the British Library. Taken straight from the family's own knowledge, it confirmed the line as shown below, and dispelled any shadow of doubt.
