Ben Affleck is a cousin inside my genealogical chart

Ben Affleck was born in Berkeley, California, the son of Christopher Anne “Chris” (née Boldt), a college district employee and teacher, and Timothy Byers Affleck, a drug counselor, social worker, janitor, auto mechanic, bartender, and former actor when using the Theater Company of Boston.

Affleck’s mother attended Harvard University and currently teaches in Cambridge Schools. His younger brother is actor Casey Affleck. Affleck has Irish and Scottish ancestry. His family moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts, when that was young, and his parents divorced in 1984. At the age of eight, Affleck met ten-year-old Matt Damon, who lived two blocks away. Both would later attend Cambridge Rindge and Latin School together, although they were in several year groups. Affleck attended Occidental College in LAa, as well as the University of Vermont.

The ancestor who connects Ben Affleck and I as relatives are Edward Neville, Baron Bergavenny, that is my 12th great-grandfather.
