She would have to be a collateral descendant, because it is my memory 
that Lady Alice either never married or married past child-bearing age.  
I'll see if I can dredge up that information.

I have done some looking in the DNB, but there do not seem to be any connections there.  If there were a distant link, it would be an interesting tidbit to mention to students.
