The two lines of descent from Edward III for James Tilghman and his son Lt. Philemon Tilghman are below. The first ten generations of Line A appear on p. 206 of Royal Descents of 600 Immigrants (2004). Given that there aren't many 17th-century immigrants to the American colonies who descend from Edward III, it's strange that Dr. Richard Tilghman doesn't appear at all in any of the editions of Plantagenet Ancestry, especially as he has many descendants living today.
Edward III had two sons A1 & B1 (see below)
