Sir Hugh de Venables, 8th Baron of Kinderton (c.1256 – 1311) was the 25th great-grandfather of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s medieval paternal ancestors in the Taylor family line.
Sir Hugh is known to have been born in Kinderton Cum Hulme in Northwich, Cheshire and is thought to have died in the same village in Cheshire. He was the husband of Agatha de Venables (née de Vernon) and was the father of Ellen Venables who connects to the Cometanic ancestry. Sir Hugh was also the son of Sir William de Venables and Margaret Dutton.
In Cometanic ancestry, Sir Hugh is categorised as part of the 27th generation retrograde, and because he was born before 1453, he is classified as a medieval ancestor of Cometan, a title that is rarely bestowed.
