Anna of Arimathea

Father: Joseph of Arimathea
Mother: Anna the Prophetess
Anna's exact connection with the Holy Family remains a mystery. She is said to be either the daughter of the Virgin Mary, a cousin of Mary, or niece of Mary. Another source claims she is a daughter of Joseph of Arimathea by his first wife Escha, his brother's widow.

An entry in an ancient British annal reads: "mam yr Anna honno a dywedei wyr r Eifft y bot yn (oed)gyfynnithderw y Veir Vorwyn Wyry Mam Grist". A Latin manuscript in the British Museum reads: "qui fuit Beli ("Magni") et Anne mater eius, quam dicunt periti consobrinam esse Marie uirginis, matris Domino nostri Ieus Christus".

Spouse: Beli, King of Britain, m. Don, d. 072

Father: Dubnovellus (Dunvallo) ap Addeomaros, he was exiled by his cousin Tasciovanus, 005 in Britain
Mother: Annia (Antonia, Ancia)
Beli is said to have met Anna while living in Rome, where his father was in exile. He later invited Joseph of Arimathea, and other Christians, to come to Britain.

Beli is the British Christian prince, Eubulus, whose greeting the Apostle Paul sent to Timothy during his last imprisonment (2 Timothy 4:21). He is often confused with Beli Mawr and Heli (Beli), father of Lludd III.
Married.

Joseph of Arimathea

Father: Matthat (2)
Joseph was a metal merchant and may have made many trips to Britain. Although the Anglo-Israelists wish to believe that Joseph went to Ireland with his daughter, more reliable sources claim differently. They say Beli met and married Anna while he was living in Rome with his exiled father. Later, when Beli regained the throne, he invited a group of Christians to live in Britain where they could worship as they pleased; Joseph of Arimathea was one of that group.

There are many stories about his being buried there and the miracles the artifacts he took with him have performed. Among the artifacts atributed to him on different occasions are: the Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny) and a staff made from the same thorn tree as the crown of thorns placed on the head of Jesus just before his crucifiction.
