A newspaper article from 1957 asserts that Reginald Scot is an ancestor of Francis Scott Key. This piece of trivia took me by surprise, as I had never seen this mentioned anywhere before.

Does this information appear in magic literature anywhere? If so, I would appreciate it if someone would post a citation or, even better, a pedigree.

I don't have any citation, but if you're looking for possible sources, musician Dana Key is a direct descendant of Francis Scott Key. He might have access to the info.
