Danny Dyer, King of Canning Town


Given all the fuss about The Dyer’s Royal heritage, it’s surprising that there seems to be not a lot of meat on the actual tree, so, I’ve researched it independently, and below you can see the first cut of Danny’s actual tree going back to Royalty (Edward III) via Gregory Cromwell, son of Thomas Cromwell.

Now given that I’ve already had to successfully put two large Genealogy companies “under the cosh” for passing off my research as their own, I’d like to say that if anyone intends to use the above they’d better make sure they credit it back to Time Detectives ™ with a link to this blog site (www.timedetectives.wordpress.com) otherwise I’ll be forced to “send the boys ’round”, you have been warned.

  1. According to this document you’ve given, unless I am reading incorrectly, it appears that the line of royal descent is not via Gregory Cromwell himself but his wife, sister of Jane Seymour.

    • Correct. The Cromwells were as common as Danny. Although from further up River at Putney rather than the Isle of Dogs.

  2. Hello there, I came across your blog after seeing Danny Dyer’s episode of “Who Do You Think You Are”. I was just wondering if you did all this research for them or did they do it? I am very distantly related to Danny Dyer as I also go back to Edward III and Phillipa of Hainault (and possibly a Mortimer link as well (though I can’t recall at this moment). I am American but my husband is from Barking and as an East Londoner, he is naturally a fan of Danny – as am I. I am glad I came across your blog! You do great work and I really enjoy reading these! Keep up the great work!

    • Hello Stefani,

      Thanks for the kind words, I certainly will continue with the blog posts, and as you can see, I tend to concentrate on celebrities and/or people with Cockney roots (being one myself, albeit from South of The River).

      I did my research separately from WDYTYA, but my research on the “Dyer” surname line was picked up on and reused by some interested parties, who then put it forward as their own, I have since had an apology and a link back to my original research posted by the company concerned. Unfortunately it’s the second time this has happened, as another major Genealogy company did a similar thing with research I carried out on the Kray Twins’ Family History, again with the same result, i.e. an apology and a link from their mega-website to mine.

      I just have to keep a close eye on their activities and their access to my sites. Hence the faux Cockney Gangster warning on the Danny Dyer Tree :-).

      Thanks again for your support.
