Dear Mrs. Dillow:
I for one have never heard or read of such a claimed descent for Evan
Ragland. I wonder if you could kindly cite us to sources?

If these Ragland volumes are actually on-line, can you be more
specific as to where they are? Googling for them leads to the website
below offering a draft copy for download (as of Nov. 2006), but the
website it references has apparently gone dead.
From the citation in library catalogs, this looks like a privatelyproduced family history. Sometimes these can be useful and reliable,
but quite frequently they tend to be "vanity" publications, generally
without adequate documentation of their genealogical conclusions. I'm
not saying that this one is necessarily in the latter category, but
the fact that the supposed Ragland royal descent is unknown to readers
in this group (and hasn't been published elsewhere apparently) is
certainly a red flag. Caveat lector....
BTW, generation 5 in your descent shows "George Neville and Margaret
Fienn". Based on the neighboring generations, this is George Nevill,
4th Lord Abergavenny, whose wife was Margaret, dau. of Sir Hugh Fenne
[not Fienne, and thus not connected to the Fiennes family]. See CP
