Genealogists have traced Barack Obama's ancestry back to Nottinghamshire.

The US president's great, great grandfather tens timed removed, Edward Fitz Randolph, was from Sutton-in-Ashfield, according to researchers from the New England Historic Genealogical Society.

There is still a record of Fitz Randolph's baptism at St Mary Magdelene Church in 1607 before he emigrated to the United States with the Pilgrim Fathers.
