Daughter of Edward 4th, she was mother of Henry 8th and sister of the Princes in the Tower. Henry 7th probably married her in support of his rather tenuous claim to the throne. Mary Queen of Scots, the one Elizabeth had beheaded. was her grandaughter and also had red hair. Mary's son was James 6th of Scotland 1st of England and our lot are descended from him. Henry 8th had red hair too.
So that's where the red hair comes from. :)))
