    Notes 
    • Egil is claimed to be the earliest of the kings in the Scandinavian sagas with corroborative evidence which can claim for him historical as distinct from mythical status. Earlier mythic figures may have been, and probably were, historical figures but the myth has so overlayed the original events that it is not possible to claim historical status for them or their family relationships - go to Egil's page in the Hougham family tree https://hougham-huffam.org/getperson.php?personID=I6134&tree=hougham to view this possible ancestry.

    This chart has mythical figures. Some may well have existed as kings and leaders but we know nothing about them apart from the Scandinavian heroic sagas and as such are not historically proven or provable.

    Solomon Hougham (1475-1518) is a key person for many modern Hougham descendants. Their pedigrees have been taken back to Solomon and then this chart follows the line back possibly to 0530 (Egil)
