See the bibliography, the information on this ahnentafel comes from Burke's Landed Gentry and The Magna Charta Sureties.

*Obadiah Bruen was descended from 6 of the Barons who signed the Magna Charta:
    ROGER BIGOD: Earl of Norfolk
    HUGH BIGOD: The Earl of Norfolk's heir
    HENRY DE BOHUN: Earl of Hereford
    ROBERT FITZWALTER: Lord of Dunmow Castle, Essexshire
    SAIRE DE QUINCEY: Earl of Winchester
    GEOFFREY DE SAYE: A feudal baron in Sussex

He was also descended from William Longespee, bastard brother of King John Lackland.

I am not inclined to post the rest of his lineage at this site, because at this point it has pretty much gotten silly. I believe that this proves the "Noah's Ark" theory of descent, that we all are related anyway.
