The PEDIGREE of
Cerdic (Cedric) of the GEWISSAE (ANCIENT SAXONY)

     First King of the WEST SAXONS (WESSEX); (Serdic)

    Note: Origin of the Anglo-Saxon race (acc. King Alfred): ``In the year that was past from the birth of Christ 494, then Cedric and Cynric his son landed at Cerdices ora [Cerdic's ore] from five ships.''
    But some scholars think Cerdic was a Briton with Alfred fabricating an Anglo-Saxon pedigree for political purposes.
